On Saturday morning, there were reports that talks surrounding a Jadeveon Clowney trade were ramping up between the Seahawks and Texans. Clearly, those discussions have been going well.
The Texans have been dealing with Clowney’s holdout throughout training camp and preseason. It became a reality that he’s more likely to be traded than remain with his current team.
Even though Clowney refused to be sent to Miami, the South Carolina product has expressed interest in going to Seattle. Well, it appears his wish has been granted.
According to NFL insider Jay Glazer, the Seahawks and Texans have agreed to trade parameters involving Clowney.
Clowney is heading to Seattle to pass a physical, which would all but seal the deal between both sides.
While the former No. 1 overall pick is the main asset being moved, the expectation is that other players are involved in this trade. Houston needs help at running back and offensive tackle, which means players like Rashaad Penny and Germain Ifedi may be part of this deal.

This deal isn’t official yet because all the players involved need to pass their physicals.
Clowney should provide a huge boost to Seattle’s defense, which lost its top pass rusher, Frank Clark, early in the offseason.
Update: NFL insider Aaron Wilson reports that the Seahawks are sending a draft pick and multiple players to the Texans.
