It has previously been reported that Clowney would report after the third preseason game.

According to Michael Lombardi, the Texans are shopping him in talks around the league.

The continuing standoff between the Texans and Jadeveon Clowney seemed to be nearing a natural stopping point as the beginning of the regular season neared, but this saga took a dramatic turn this week.

After receiving the team's franchise tag during the offseason, Clowney has been holding out for a new contract, with the 2014 No. 1 overall pick one year away from free agency. Clowney is a three-time Pro Bowler and has the right not to report to training camp without being fined or suspended. "I know he's working hard".

"I don't know. I really don't", O'Brien said when asked when Clowney might report.

Based on the way things have played out, Houston Chronicle reporter John McClain believes that Clowney will ultimately be traded ahead of the season. He's a professional. When that happens, we'll move forward with that. "LTs don't grow on trees", he wrote, "so I have no idea who it would be at this time of year".

The former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans back in 2014 recorded 47 tackles, 9 sacks, a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries, one defensive touchdown and a pass defense during the 2018 National Football League season.
