Texans won't reach long-term deal with Jadeveon Clowney before tag deadline

The Houston Texans and linebacker Jadeveon Clowney will not reach an agreement on a long-term deal ahead of Monday’s deadline to sign players who have been applied the franchise tag, ESPN reported.

Clowney still has yet to sign his franchise tender, but if he does, he’ll make $15.9 million in 2019.

The first overall pick in 2014, Clowney overcame a slow start to his career and is now coming off his third straight Pro Bowl appearance. He had nine sacks last season.

The Texans have not been able to sign Clowney to a long-term deal, and there has been a disagreement whether the 26-year-old is a linebacker or a defensive end.
