Agent: Jadeveon Clowney Wants To Get New Contract With Texans Done

Sure, water is wet, but it’s January. We need Texans news to discuss.

Although the Texans already picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract to ensure he’d remain in Houston in 2018, Jadeveon Clowney is ready for a new deal. Mark Berman caught up to Clowney’s agent Bus Cook esterday, and as you’d expect, Cook is ready to talk turkey with Brian Gaine.

It’s interesting to note that Cook mentioned Gaine’s presence as general manager made a new contract for Clowney in Houston achievable. Was that an innocent remark, or does it indicate that Cook wasn’t as optimistic a new deal with the Texans would get done if Rick Smith was still in charge?
