The Houston Texans finally pulled the trigger on a trade involving Jadeveon Clowney, and it's safe to say the majority of analysts around the league aren't fond of their return.

Houston really had no choice but to trade Clowney this season. Nonetheless, the expectation was that he'd garner a much bigger haul in any deal.

In addition to only receiving a third-round pick for Clowney, the Texans failed to add any depth in the trenches. Despite having a need for offensive linemen, the front office settled for a pair of linebackers.

Seattle is sending linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin to Houston as part of the trade.

The consensus from many people on social media is that the Texans are the losing side from this blockbuster deal.

Nick Wright of FS1's First Things First points to Houston's lack of a general manager for this move. He believes too much responsibility is on Bill O'Brien's plate right now.

Wright wasn't the only analyst that took a few shots at the Texans. NFL insider Benjamin Allbright couldn't help but laugh at Houston failing to get back a running back or offensive lineman from the Seahawks.

It's tough to see Houston ignore its needs at offensive line, especially when it has a superstar quarterback in Deshaun Watson.
