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