Little chance of Clowney-Texans agreement

The Houston Texans and franchised pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney reportedly won't reach a contract agreement before next week's NFL deadline

The Houston Texans and franchised pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney reportedly won't reach a contract agreement before next week's NFL deadline

Houston placed its franchise tag on Jadeveon Clowney in early March of this year, effectively keeping the dominant defensive player another season with the Texans until the team and Clowney's representatives can iron out a long-term deal.

While the deadline for franchise-tagged players to come to terms with National Football League teams is still several days away, the chances of Jadeveon Clowney reaching an agreement with the Houston Texas are all but gone, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Better luck next year, Jadeveon Clowney.

Wilson also mentions that under the franchise tender, Clowney will make $15.9 million next season but shouldn't miss any games when the season starts in the fall.

The defensive end hasn't participated in any of the Houston Texans offseason program and will "likely" miss "at least a major portion of camp" but will not hold out during the regular season.

Players rarely go the Le'Veon Bell route when hit with the franchise tag, as it requires giving up a ton of money. He only played four games in his first season.

Houston has reportedly interviewed San Francisco 49ers VP of player personnel Martin Mayhew and former Cleveland Browns GM Ray Farmer for the job, but those happened weeks ago; initially, it looked like the team wanted New England Patriots de facto GM Nick Caserio for the job, but they backed off after the Patriots filed tampering charges.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound defender was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Via the NFL Players Association, the Texans now have $40.27 million in salary cap space.
