Neither Jadeveon Clowney nor Robbie Gould have signed their franchise tags with their respective teams, and that's not the only thing they have in common.

Clowney and Gould will not attend the three-day mandatory minicamps for the Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers, respectively, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

Both offseason workouts are scheduled to kick off Tuesday, but don't expect either player to be there.

Of the six players to receive the franchise tag in 2019, only Clowney, Gould and Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett have not signed a long-term deal, after or without being traded. While Jarrett has signed his tag and intends to attend Atlanta's mandatory workout, Clowney and Gould have different ideas.

 

Clowney is aiming for a long-term deal in Houston, as are the Texans. In April, then-Texans general manager Brian Gaine said that signing the Pro Bowl pass rusher to a long-term contract was "still the plan." The problem is now Gaine is no longer in the building, fired last week out of nowhere. It's unclear whether Houston's interim GM Chris Olsen has the authority to strike a deal with Clowney while the Texans' search for Gaine's replacement continues.

The former first-overall pick already did not attend voluntary OTAs to make a statement on the matter. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said in May that while he has no idea when Clowney will return to the team, "I have every belief and trust that JD is working on his own and getting ready for whenever he does decide to show up."

Clowney is set to make around $15.97 million on the tag, if and when he signs it. The deadline for the two sides to come to an agreement on a contract extension in July 15, roughly one month away and before the start of training camp.

If the interim doesn't have authority to sign him long term I highly doubt he has the authority to trade him. I don't know what it would cost but I would love to see him on the opposite side of Jerry.

I think it would be borderline unfair for the Texans to hold the 49ers kicker's contract dispute against Gaine.

What is a fair asking price?

Seems funny for a kicker to be holding out because he is on the franchise tag. What a terrible thing to be well paid without the serious long term pain.

I was just about to post this. What is he expecting pay wise 😂. I was shocked he was tagged in the first place. YOUR A KICKER.

2nd+Lawson is what I would offer. I feel that’s a very fair return considering the massive contract Clowney would demand.

Houston can keep Clowney as far as I’m concerned. Good/great player but not a cornerstone building block with the injuries and that’s the contract he’s gonna get. Teams are very limited on how many 20 million a year contracts they can give and Clowneys agent isn’t letting Beane wizard up a long term contract with easy outs every season. Guy is gonna get a massive contract and be a top 3 paid defensive lineman

Guys looking for Clark/Lawrence money.  Dee ford or trey flowers seems more appropriate - but i could see this lasting a while.

More big plays from DL against Brady in that video than the Bills have had in the last decade.

 

Also a lot of examples of his impact coming from between the tackles........imagine a 3rd down pass rush group with Clowney and Oliver in the middle.

Imagine giving Houston what could very well be a high 1st or 2nd round pick in 2020, while also watching Clowney turn into another Lazy Mario, once he gets his 100+ million contract.

Or.... Imagine getting Clowney for a mid-late 2nd round pick and a player we probably are just going to lose next year in return for 10+ sacks per year for the next 5+ years and adding him to an already awesome looking (on paper) d-line.  Not saying he does one way or another, but have to contemplate amazing upside is there as well.

 

Not to mention, having a respectable pass rush helps all levels on the D.

I dont know.  People on this board like to blame Beane for Whaleys moves.

1.) Why in God's name would Houston accept only a 2nd round pick and bringing in Shaq Lawson, who has done less than nothing, to replace a former 1st overall pick like Clowney?

2.) Clowney has been in the league since 2014 and has never gotten to 10 sacks in a season.  By comparison, Mario had already exceeded 10 sacks twice before coming to Buffalo (in 2007 and 2008) and came close to 10 sacks again in 2009.

Houston has close to $40M cap space with the tag amount. He must want a deal like Mack.

The last 2 seasons have really been the only 2 seasons where Clowney has played the full season (missed 1 game in 2018) and he had 9 & 9.5 sacks.  Not really unrealistic to say that he is starting to peak and could do more.  

 

Much like it is not unrealistic to say that he could decide to get lazy after getting paid.

 

Also why not accept a 2nd and Lawson?  If he doesn't sign his franchise, you have nothing.  This way you have something.

 

Not saying you're wrong and definitely not saying that I'm right, just giving the counter argument.

Couldn’t Gould just show up and miss every kick until they cut him?

 

Bears would still take him back!
