The Houston Texans have engaged five different teams in talks about a possible trade in franchise day defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle the most Significant discussions have come with the Miami Dolphins. However, the Texans have spoken to the Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins and New York Jets in regards to the stand-out pass rusher.
"Nothing has advanced" with any of the teams outside Miami at this point. Additionally, any trade with Washington appears to be dead Trent Williams. Clowney reportedly prefers the Eagles or Seahawks as possible destinations.
Clowney can not be traded without first signing his franchise day tender, which gives him leverage in the discussions as long as he's willing to stay home and report to the Texans. Additionally, Clowney does not currently have an agent representing him after firing Bus Cook. Clowney has met with Dolphins head coach Brian Flores after the Texans has given the two sides permission to do so.
Getting all of the variables to come together in a way that everyone can. Clowney wants to spend more than one season at his new destination.
