According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Houston Texans have agreed to trade three-time Pro-Bowler Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are reportedly giving up a 2020 third-round pick plus linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Clowney’s departure from Houston comes after the Texans placed the franchise tag on the pass rusher earlier this Spring, which resulted in an ongoing offseason holdout.

The 26-year-old Clowney has recorded 205 tackles in his five-year career, 29 of which have been sacks. In those five seasons, Clowney has been selected to three Pro Bowls, all coming in the last three years where he has racked up 24.5 of his 29 sacks. Early on, Clowney faced knee injuries that sidelined him for 15 games his first two seasons. Since then his health has improved, only missing one game over the last two seasons.

Clowney rose to fame before becoming the first overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, when he laid a helmet-popping hit on then University of Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl.
