Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney yet to sign franchise tag with deadline looming

Houston Texans 2014 first overall draft selection Jadeveon Clowney has until tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. central time to sign the franchise tag offer that the team offered him at the start of their offseason. Texans and Clowney have been unable to reach an agreement on a potential long term extension after he played on the fifth year option that was exercised on his rookie scale contract as a first-round pick.

Texans former general manager Brian Gaine was optimistic in working a deal with Clowney’s representatives before the start of their important offseason activities, but his firing may have stunted that notion.
