Clowney gets his wish and the Dolphins are in full tank mode (Handle your business Podcast)

    Jadeveon Clowney – Smartest move in player history?

    Jadeveon Clowney has pulled off what might be the smartest chess move that the NFL has seen by a player. Not only did Clowney get the trade that he wanted, but he also got traded to the Seattle Seahawks where they didn’t have to give up anything. The Seahawks gave up a third-round pick, Barkevious Mingo, and Jacob Martin. They gave up nothing to acquire the star defensive end and even if they can’t get Clowney to sign the dotted line they will benefit this season. The Seahawks stole a disgruntled Clowney from the Texans and will hope to benefit from it.

    Clowney was headed to the Miami Dolphins and even met with the team until he refused a trade to Miami. He waited to sign his tender till he was going to be traded to the team that he wanted to go to. Whether he gets his big contract from the Seahawks is a different story and something that will rely on his play on the field. Clowney has done a good job thus far but needs to finish how he intends to.

    Miami Dolphins – Tank season

    By trading away Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills for future assets, Johnson Bademosi, and Julien Davenport it could be tank season in Miami. This all came after a potential Clowney trade with the Texans fell through. The Dolphins decided that they could not pass up the offer from the Houston Texans and Bill O’Brien. The Dolphins are prepared to go into free agency and the 2020 NFL draft with six potential top 100 picks and almost $140Mil in cap space. The Dolphins are setting themselves up for a bright future if everything goes their way.

    Questions from the podcast team

    • Are the Miami Dolphins officially tanking?
    • Did the Houston Texans get fleeced in the Jadeveon Clowney, Laremy Tunsil, and Kenny Stills trades?
