And just how many draft picks would you throw in?
Might have to send a pic of Jason Taylor, too.
Lol..you assume a QB pick early?
While I'm not the type to get super excited about draft picks, this is the best bet. If the team was a just a handful of pieces away from making multiple playoff runs, then I would agree with trading for him. But since this team is clearly in a rebuilding phase and signing big players to the team clearly hadn't worked, it's time we build through the draft.
That being said, if he can be had for super cheap, then go for it. Since that most likely isn't the case then they need to pass and focus on building a young team.
How are we placed re salary cap to afford what would be an extremely expensive commitment for Clowney for at least the next 3 years? All my business instincts tell me to save the big money now to be able to spend next year.
We have and will have plenty of cap space. Currently looking at $20mil+. Not saying that we should, but it could easily be done.
I’m in if the price is right.
If I remember correctly from about a month or two ago, it was looking like he wasn’t interested in signing long term with Houston. It may not cost as much as you’d think to get him
Can't see why the Texans would trade him unless the contract talks have turned toxic.
they have a young cheap QB, a stud #1 receiver and a good defensive core.
AFCS isn't a cake walk but still a winnable division
Hard to believe from a team with no GM and the flexible and accommodating Bill O'Brien calling the shots.
One thing unlikely to contribute to a harmonious negotiation is the Texans declaring him as an LB rather than DE when franchise tagging, and therefore being obligated to pay him less.
The Texans had JJ Watt and Clowney and haven't been close to win a championship. We are no where near one player away from completing a championship defense. Trading for a guy like Clowney is a "win now" Move. Plus Clowney is overrated. Has has been since college. I've never seen a prospect who draft hype was from one single play in college. And that was early on his college career. He looks the part but no where near anything special just a solid DE. Very very over hyped player.
We loaded up on draft picks to make sure we can get a young QB of the future if Rosen doesn't pan out. Not a 27 year old oft injured Dlinemen.
Doesn't make sense for Miami. Slimm mentioned it before the draft, but Pass Rushers help put you over the top - when you're already good. They don't make bad teams good. What does make bad teams good? Playcallers, QB's, OL, and receiving options.
The Bears had a stacked D and an elite DC, but they needed a Pass Rusher. But, even with a historically good D, Chicago came up short because of their QB (and Kicker), and the D is bound to regress in 2020 (would have even if Fangio stayed). In life and football, invest in things with staying power. Offensive production is sticky, because so much of its success is tied to Playcaller, QB, and OL - all tend to be good or bad year over year. Miami isn't close to where Chicago was, but even if they were, that type of investment in a Pass Rusher is more questionable than most understand.
Depends on the compensation pick-wise. For Pete’s sake, this team is taking well over $20 million in salary cap damage for Tannehill and Suh this year. I’m not all that concerned about taking on some salary; that’ll be off the books next year.
And he'll have no JJ Watt in Miami so he'll be the DC's prime focus. Sorry, I'm in the camp top FAs are for teams 1-2 pieces away. Miami isn't there.
