NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the Houston Texans do not plan to extend Jadeveon Clowney this offseason.

With all the good feelings generated by the fact that Clowney reported to camp (unlike contract holdouts and fellow front-seven disruptors from the 2014 NFL Draft Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack), this news may or may not come as a surprise to Clowney and his representation.

Previous reports from NRG Park led us to believe an extension was trending forward, if not immediately on the horizon.

Following that report, the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain reported in mid-June that the Texans might not extend Clowney after all.

Now with Rapoport chiming in from a national angle, we’ll have to wait and see if there’s any change in strategy, temperament, or, well, participation from Clowney himself as the news filters down.

For all we know, Clowney and his reps could very well be aware of this. There’s also always the possibility that the report is simply bunk.
