This would be a great move ... Robby seems to have hit his Peter principle. I know he is capable of running slightly more than go routes now ... But this is the highest his value will ever be if you ask me.

Aaron Donald is a DT, not an NT or a 3-4 DE.  If the Jets were drafting a pass rusher at #3, they should have taken Allen.  Hold yer breath until Q gets double digit sacks.

If that's the case then Q is already a wasted pick.  Pass-rushing DT is what you're looking for when you take one that early.

I don't see it either.  Besides, what Houston needs now is a RB after Lamar Miller got hurt.  I'd hate to see Ty Montgomery go but IMO that would be the piece Houston would be after rather than another WR.

What 3-4 end is a legit pass rusher, besides Watt?  

Exactly why a 3-4 DE is extremely valuable when you find a good one.  They're rare.  Q is supposed to be a rare talent.

No disagreement at all.  They should not have drafted Q williams.

They don't play a 4-3, so how is he gonna play DT?

anyone know what control over Clowney/what compensation (if any)  we would get worst case scenario if we weren't able to work out a new deal after the season with him?

It is not extremely valuable.  3-4 ends hold up blockers, so OLBs can run around them and get to the QB.

Hit him with his 2nd franchise tag and hope he doesn't hold out the entire season.

I will lose my sh*t if this happens.

Even if it upgrades the team it’s not worth it. We’re not winning anything this season regardless. The priority has to be Darnold’s development and give him a chance to succeed long term. He’s already got a shaky offensive line and good but not great receiving options. We’re less than 2 weeks from opening day - taking away his best WR, his deep threat, the guy he’s building a great rapport with would be farcical.

I believe we could tag and trade him next season; or let him walk as a FA for a likely comp pick.

No, the jets wouldnt even think of parting w/ robby anderson.  Hes our best reciever and most explosive player we have on offense.  The delusion on the board is crazy.

Make the offense suffer for a lazy overrated DE... Sounds like a brilliant move

Are you serious? The value may be there but it would be a terrible move for the organization especially with no control over clowney and him wanting to be overpaid and then dog it Ala mo Wilkerson style.

QB money for a lazy DE hahaha.... No way

Second most explosive... But the things this board wants to give up for an overrated pass rusher is insane... And everything tells me he is going to go out mo wilk style

Reading all these posts reminds me of how idiotic it was for Macc to select Q over Allen. You combine the need for an edge rusher with the importance of the position (especially compared to 3-4 DE) and I really get angry.

Glad Macc's gone!

REPORT: JADEVEON CLOWNEY ‘VERY UNHAPPY’ WITH AGENT, THINKS HE’S HEADED TO MIAMI

By
 Jesse Reed

Jadeveon Clowney

The Jadeveon Clowney trade rumors have been stewing for weeks now, and it appears something may be happening soon. 

According to ESPN 97.5 host John Granato, who received an endorsement from Stephanie Stradley of the Houston Chronicle on this information, Clowney is “very unhappy” with agent Bus Cook. 

“HE DOESN’T THINK BUS COOK HAS A GOOD ENOUGH PLAN,” GRANATO WROTE ON TWITTER TUESDAY. “WHEN HE SIGNS HIS TENDER HE THINKS HE’S HEADED TO MIAMI. THEY WILL HAVE TWO FRANCHISE YEARS TO CONVINCE HIM TO STAY LONG TERM.”

Previously, Granato had reported that Clowney refused to go to Miami in a trade, and that the defensive star was threatening to stay out until the end of the preseason.

The latter bit of information there tracks. Despite multiple national reports that Clowney would return to Houston after the third preseason game, he has yet to sign his franchise tender and report to the team. 

What is a bit confusing is why Miami would make a trade for Clowney if he’s made it clear he doesn’t want to play for the Fins. 

The one thing that seems crystal clear at this point is that Clowney is very unhappy with how things have been handled by his agent, and by the Texans, this summer. 

He has been angling for a long-term extension since last year. Now Clowney is forced to play on a one-year contract worth just under $16 million, which quite honestly is well below market value compared to what the other top pass rushers have made on their long-term deals. 

 
 

It’s going to be fascinating to see how things play out from this point.

clowney fired his agent. He must really hate Miami

Would this be tampering, or is it okay since he has not signed his tender.

A good NT can be found well outside of the 1st round.  When you take a guy with the # 3 overall pick, you want someone who gets to the QB.  Aaron Donald had 20.5 sacks last season.  Think the Rams would find him more valuable as a "block eater" in the middle?

You do realize Donald was drafted as and is a DT?

And no, DTs arent counted on to be found "well outside" of the 1st.

The Texans did engage teams on Jadeveon Clowney some in the spring. The belief then, according to multiple clubs involved, was that he could be had for a second-round pick.

He can talk to the Fins all he wants. They can’t sign him without trading something to the Texans. I hope they sign him and give up a lot.
