Fans roast Texans for being fleeced by Seahawks in Jadeveon Clowney trade

Jesse Reed

The Houston Texans finally traded disgruntled pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, moving him to the Seattle Seahawks for a relative ham sandwich.

As astutely pointed out by NFL insider Benjamin Allbright, the two players Houston got in return for Clowney — a top-50 player in the league — were likely not going to survive Seattle’s final cut Saturday.

This is a fantastic deal for the Seahawks. For Houston? Not so much. Fans and analysts reacted on social media accordingly.

For what it’s worth, the Texans don’t have a general manager, which Stephen Cohen knew — hence the tongue-in-cheek comment. They did have a general manager, Brian Gaine, who had done a pretty solid job last year outside of the team’s offensive line woes.
