Hall of Famer Warren Sapp questioned and criticized Jadeveon Clowney the same day the star defensive prospect was scheduled to arrive in Houston for a meeting with the Texans. “My grandfather taught me something a long time ago. He said ‘You will never get more money by doing less work,’” said Sapp, who recorded 96.5 sacks during 13 NFL seasons and is now an NFL Network analyst. “I look at Jadeveon Clowney’s (game) tape and I don’t see a guy that is playing the game with his hair on fire, making plays, running up and down the field sideline to sideline, doing all of the things.” Sapp continued to knock Clowney and pointed toward a much-discussed quarterback as the Texans’ best option with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. “Let’s evaluate this and let’s see what Houston comes up with,” Sapp said. “If it’s my pick, I’m taking Teddy Bridgewater myself, because I believe Teddy Bridgewater is that quarterback to get it done. What does Houston need? A quarterback to get it done.” Heath Evans, who spent 11 years as an NFL tight end, took Sapp’s side.
