Houston sent Clowney to Seattle, in return receiving linebackers Jacob Martin and Barkevious Mingo, as well as a third-round pick.
Coach Bill O’Brien, who has been a silent part of Houston’s general manager by committee, addressed the trade when he met with the media Monday at NRG Stadium, and believes the club received fair compensation.authentic nfl jerseys cheap
“We do,” said O’Brien. “There were a lot of talks that took place. There were contract proposals between the player and us that we just couldn’t come to an agreement on relative to the franchise tag. The spirit of the franchise tag is to try to give yourself more time to possibly come to an agreement on a long-term contract.nfl jerseys for cheap
“We couldn’t come to that agreement, and we had several discussions with many teams over many months and we feel like we made the best decision for the team.”cheap nfl jerseys
Many Texans fans and media members have been critical of the return Houston received in the Clowney trade. Although the South Carolina product may have been a tad over hyped heading into the 2014 NFL draft, after his vicious hit on Michigan’s Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl, nfl jersey cheapClowney did bring a lot to the table during his tenure with Houston.cheap nfl jersey
The 26-year-old proved to be one of the best run stoppers in the NFL. However, in a passing league in 2019, he never registered double-digit sacks in his five seasons as a Texan. In fairness, he came close with 9.5 and 9.0 in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Clowney was, however, a bit unreliable health-wise, as injuries troubled him throughout his career. He only played 16 full games in 2017, the only season of his career in which he never missed a game.cheap nfl authentic jerseys
Despite the return of a third-round pick and two linebackers from Seattle, many are unconvinced that Mingo and Martin will make up that productivity on the defensive front Clowney leaves behind. But O’Brien remains hopeful.cheap authentic nfl jerseys
“I understand everybody is going to dissect how we did it and what we received back and what we gave Seattle,” O’Brien said. “In the end we did what we felt was in the best interest of our organization and our team moving forward. We feel like we got a 2020 third-round pick and we also feel like we added two players that are very versatile players. They play hard, they play with great effort, they’re high character guys and we feel like we did what’s best for the team.cheap nfl jerseys from china
