Houston Texans star pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney has been fighting for a lucrative long-term contract for years now, and it's finally come to a head after the Texans chose to franchise tag him this offseason. Clowney has voiced his displeasure with the situation, and he's yet to report to camp as he waits for a new deal.
Apparently, the Texans even tried to trade him, but Clowney was disinterested in the location, so he wouldn't approve the deal.
Want to reiterate that this was worded poorly. Clowney refused to go to Miami in a trade and now he’s threatening to stay out until the end of the preseason. https://t.co/n05X1xfbxC— John Granato (@johngranato) August 13, 2019
