Head Coach Bill O'Brien made it clear on Friday that the Houston Texans' priority on Jadeveon Clowney's Holdout – whether it's to swap the Pass Rusher or let him play the season – is of the utmost interest of the team.
"Anything I can tell you without going into details, [it’s] is always what's best for your team," O & Brien said. "What's best for your team in terms of value, money, skills, production – all these different things, it will always be well thought out and it will always be in the name of the best for the team – that's the best decision for that Team?
"Every time he wants to come in and sign the tender, we can sit down and talk. … Again, it's about what's best for the team. Currently these talks can not take place because he has to sign the offer.
When O & # 39; Brien was asked if he would like Clowney to sign his franchise After a tender, the head coach returned to Houston and said, "It's not a matter of want." [1
Clowney comes out of one of the best of his five seasons in the NFL. While the 2014 No. 1 Pick does not have the breathtaking bag totals of other elite striker – he has collected a total of 18.5 points in the last two seasons – he is one of the best NFL players in his position. Having dealt with injuries early in his career, Clowney has three forced mistakes and five recovered mistakes over the past two seasons and his 53 tackles against defeats in the last three seasons prove him in third place in the NFL.
"He is a good player." Brien said, "He's a prolific player, he played well for us, and he's a good footballer."

If Clowney "I know he worked," O & Brien said. "When he can play in a game depends on how he comes back." I know that he worked, "said O'Brien conversations that I have had with him, he has said that he is in the best form of his life.That seems to be the case and if he decides We have to see that for ourselves, but we really believe that he has worked. "
And if he decides not to sign the tender and miss games this season?
"We're just not at this point," O & Brien said. "But these are all things we talked about in relation to the team of people I talked about, obviously with this situation, but different conversations with all sorts of situations that are going on with our team.  "We will try to do the best for the team. At the end of the day, I would say if he decides to, the ball is in its place. "
