Jadeveon Clowney Won't Sign Extension With Texans Before Deadline

Jul 15, 2019 12:06 PM

Jadeveon Clowney won't sign a long-term deal with the Houston Texans before Monday's deadline. No trade is in the works for Clowney either.

The Texans tagged Clowney as a linebacker rather than a defensive end. Despite being tagged as a linebacker, Clowney played most of his snaps at defensive end in 2018.

Clowney is expected to miss most, if not all, of training camp, as he still hasn't signed his franchise tender, which is worth $15.967 million for the 2019 season.
