Clowney trade looming, Duke Johnson and the Houston Texans (Nosebleed Seats Podcast)

Houston Texans – Jadeveon Clowney and Duke Johnson

The Houston Texans have been looking on trades for a right amount of the offseason. They traded for former Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson and have officially put Jadeveon Clowney on the trade block.

Duke Johnson could finally have his shot with the Houston Texans. After years of never being the guy with the Cleveland Browns, he now has the chance to be the guy. His fellow University of Miami graduate in Lamar Miller, unfortunately, tore his ACL over the weekend and barring any trade, Johnson will start. This most significant issue for the new shinny running back is the Jadeveon Clowney situation. According to reports on Twitter, the Texans would want either a starting offensive tackle, a running back, or a wide receiver. With official reports coming out that the Miami Dolphins have met with Jadeveon Clowney in person, Kenyan Drake could be a trade piece.

This would be the worst situation for Duke Johnson due to Kenyan Drake being the more talented back and having a history as a longtime starter. There seems to be significant interest from the Miami Dolphins and with them not wanting to trade star left tackle Laremy Tunsil, Drake and Kenny Stills could be options. The Dolphins are looking to unload, and if Clowney gives the go-ahead for a trade, then it will most likely be the Miami Gardens destination.

NFL Housekeeping: Andrew Luck news/Daniel Jones rant

We won’t dive too deep into Andrew Luck during this article, but our hosts from the Nosebleed Seats were more shocked about the Luck retirement than a potential Jadeveon Clowney trade. This was a sticky situation for the Indianapolis Colts and Luck.

During the podcast, there is also a funny rant from Zach Wolchuk on New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones.

Questions from the podcast team

  • Is Andrew Luck going down as the best “What if?” in NFL history?
  • Where do you think Jadeveon Clowney should be traded?
  • Is Duke Johnson in a better position to be the next guy in Houston?
