As Week 1 of the regular season approaches very soon, there’s serious momentum growing toward a blockbuster trade centered around Jadeveon Clowney.
Clowney has held out from training camp in search of a long-term deal from the Houston Texans. Earlier reports have stated that he’s seeking a contract that would pay him similar money to Khalil Mack.
The Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in acquiring Clowney, but he’s not interested in playing for them. In fact, he won’t sign his franchise tender at the moment to avoid potentially being sent there.
It turns out that another team is making significant movement toward a trade for Clowney.
According to reporter Patrick Starr, the Seahawks have ramped up trade talks with the Texans involving a deal that would land them Clowney.
Seattle is one of Clowney’s preferred destinations.

Earlier in the year, the Seahawks traded Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs. They could use another star pass rusher to bolster their defensive line for this season.
Acquiring Clowney right before the season begins would be a huge boost for Seattle. Last season, the former No. 1 overall pick had 47 tackles and nine sacks.
We’ll continue to provide updates on Clowney as trade talks have been ongoing.
