The Houston Texans will consider using the franchise tag on Jadeveon Clowney. 

“It’s certainly an option,” GM Brian Gaine said of using the franchise tag. “It’s not the priority, but it’s certainly an option.”

The Texans have until Tuesday afternoon to decide about using the tag. 

There have been reports that the Texans might prefer to let Clowney play out the season on the tag.
