Texans get Barkevious Mingo, Jake Martin, third-round pick for Clowney

Mike Florio talks Jadeveon Clowney's contract options to either sign his franchise tag or risk the Houston Texans' pulling it.

The trade terms are in on the Jadeveon Clowney deal, and the Texans aren’t getting a lot.

Clowney is heading to Seattle, and in return the Seahawks are sending Barkevious Mingo, Jake Martin and a 2020 third-round draft pick to Houston, according to Albert Breer of

Mingo was a high draft pick who never lived up to expectations, and there was talk out of Seattle that he was about to get released after a so-so preseason. Martin was a sixth-round pick last year who had three sacks as a rookie. Both are pass rushers, neither is close to the same kind of pass rusher as Clowney.

The Texans, who currently do not have a general manager, are sure to take plenty of criticism for this deal. Clowney is an elite talent, and the Texans aren’t getting much for him.
