Clowney is going to Seattle.
Jadeveon Clowney is headed to the Seattle Seahawks. According to Jay Glazer, the Houston Texans just sent the three-time pro bowler to Seattle in exchange for Barkevious Mingo, Jacob Martin, and a 2020 third-round pick.
The news broke after Glazer tweeted, “Scoopage: SEA & HOU have agreed to trade parameters re: Jadeveon Clowney contingent upon Clowney & other players involved passing physicals. Still lot of moving parts but believed Clowney, who rejected going to Miami at first, is headed for his physical with Hawks.” It seems like the move is a done deal.
NFL fans are roasting the Texans for the move on Social Media. Many believe the team did not receive enough in return for the rare talent. In response to a tweet from Bleacher Report announcing the move, one fan wrote, “Your headline should read: CLOWNEY TO SEATTLE FOR A HANDFUL OF BEANS.” Another praised the Seahawks, “Bill O' Brian really just revived the Legion of Boom off life support.”
Clowny was the number one overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft and finished off a strong season last year with 47 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. We’ll have to wait and see if he can bring that same dominance to Seattle this year.
