Report: Texans gauged Chiefs’ trade interest in Jadeveon Clowney
The Houston Texans and Jadeveon Clowney appear to be at a serious impasse — so much so that trades have been explored involving the franchise-tagged pass rusher.
According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, Clowney and the Texans are in a similar place as Frank Clark was with the Seattle Seahawks. That standoff ultimately saw him traded to Kansas City.
It turns out, according to Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports, the Texans reached out to the Chiefs to gauge their interest in Clowney before Kansas City ultimately traded for Clark.
12. A note on #Texans edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney. I’m told his situation is on a track similar to Frank Clark and the #Seahawks prior to Clark’s trade to the #Chiefs. So much so, Houston actually put out trade feelers about Clowney right in the middle of that Frank Clark deal.

Per a source, I’m told Houston reached out to KC about Clowney prior to the Frank Clark trade, but the Chiefs were locked in on Clark – their No. 1 guy. https://t.co/Mpr2QNxLLd

Clowney was tagged in March, and we haven’t heard a ton about it since then. If the reports are true, however, there’s clearly friction here. The comparisons to Clark’s situation with the Seahawks are not going to make Texans fans happy, especially considering how that situation came to a head.
