Dolphins interested in Clowney trade

Houston Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney during the first half of an NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday Dec. 30 2018 in Houston

The Houston Texans are trading holdout pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks, according to multiple reports Saturday. In exchange, Seattle is sending the Texans a 2020 third-round pick and defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin.

The Houston Texans finally pulled the trigger on a trade involving Jadeveon Clowney, and it's safe to say the majority of analysts around the league aren't fond of their return.

As reported earlier this week by our very own Matthew Cannata and later confirmed by NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline, Tunsil was one of the many players the Dolphins have dangling as trade bait.

Clowney can not be signed beyond 2019, and he's earning the $15.9 million contract on the franchise tag guaranteed in full.

Andrew Luck confirms retirement: 'I'm in pain'
Luck thanked the franchise, his fellow teammates and Colts fans and said he was grateful to have been drafted to the team. Luck said the repeated injuries, the lingering pain and continual rehab took away his love for the game.

Nick Wright of FS1's First Things First points to Houston's lack of a general manager for this move.

At the same time, though, they allowed themselves to lose all leverage in this situation with Clowney's list of preferred teams and his trump card of not having signed his tender. However, because players receive the higher amount between the tag value or 120% of last year's salary, Clowney is poised to get an additional $524,000 this season. He has 21 quarterback hits in each of the past two years. As reports came out mentioning a potential Tunsil-for-Clowney deal, the Dolphins reportedly told Tunsil's camp the team has no plans to trade him. But he is an excellent all-around player who has been selected to the last three Pro Bowls.

And even though Seattle's defense is nowhere near the same level from a few years ago when they were viewed as one of the most risky units in the league, now that Clowney appears to be coming on board, the NFC West is about to get a little more interesting.

The Rams' offensive line now has to handle Clowney, first-round rookie L.J. Collier, Ziggy Ansah, Poona Ford and Jarran Reed up front in their two matchups with Seattle this season.
