The contract impasse between Jadeveon Clowney and the Houston Texans continues to linger, and now the star pass rusher will reportedly skip mandatory minicamp.
The Texans used the franchise tag to keep Clowney from hitting free agency earlier this offseason. However, it’s been reported that the team tried to trade Clowney more recently, indicating negotiations aren’t going swell.
It’s not yet known how far Clowney intends to take this. The deadline for working out an extension is coming soon (July 15). To this point there has been no positive reports coming out of Houston that an agreement between the team and its star is close. A training-camp holdout very well could be in the cards.
