Jadeveon Clowney Not Expected To Report To Offseason Workouts

Expect the expected.

Jadeveon Clowney was franchise-tagged last month after completing his fifth NFL season and playing out his rookie contract. This staved off a contract extension without the Texans having to worry about another team waltzing on in and picking him up. Clowney and the Texans are reportedly far apart on agreeing to a new deal, though a reasonable person would expect the contract to look something like the one DeMarcus Lawrence just signed, a deal with an annual average salary of $20 million over five years. Yet it doesn’t sound like that’s close to happening.

As a result, Clowney is doing what every player who doesn’t want to play under the tag does—skip out and ignore offseason workouts, organized team activities, and perhaps even training camp.

Hopefully this gets worked out soon. Clowney is integral to the team’s success and the ongoing trade rumors, especially leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft, are unbearable.
