Jadeveon Clowney will be playing for a new team in the 2019 NFL season.

The Seattle Seahawks are acquiring the defensive end in a trade from the Houston Texans. The trade has sent the NFL world into a frenzy.

Fans are voicing their opinion of the news all over social media. But a recent post from a current player is going viral.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is loving the new trade — especially considering he won't have to worry about playing against Clowney anymore.

To voice his excitement, Wilson takes to Twitter and shares a humorous tweet accompanied by a photo of Clowney and himself.

In one part of the tweet, Wilson says, "Welcome to the squad bro!" He is clearly fired up about his team's new acquisition.

Clowney has back-to-back seasons with at least nine sacks. He may have an even better season in 2019 according to's Ian Rapoport.

"New pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney has been training in Florida all summer," Rapaport said. "According to someone who has watched him, is in better shape than he’s been in in years. Seattle will get a game-ready pass-rusher."

The former Texans' defensive end has been one of the better defensive players in the NFL. Could Clowney have his best year yet in Seattle?
