    The Texans screwed up with Clowney because they didnt move him early enough, and traded him off at a time period of the year when they have the absolute worst leverage.

    The downside for seattle is talent pool on the D-line is all on a one year contract or last year of their contract.

    They are only going to hold these players together for one season, and they better make the most of it.

      Seahawks had a solid defense and now with Clowney they got even better in my opinion.

        With the fact the Schneider got Houston to pay $7 mil of Clowney's cap hit makes this a bigger fleecing than what Miami did.

              Btw I feel it fair to mention if Clowney leaves the hawks in free agency they get their 3rd round pick back

                @dylan dickey yeah they likely get a 3rd round pick (2021) if either Ansah pr Clowney leaves in FA. Go comp picks!

              Seahawks have the best overall front 7 in the league. Cant wait to see how Kendricks and Clowney do this season. Ford is also going to have a breakout year and if that happens, theyll be able to part ways with Reed easier.

                before I knew about their deal with Miami it seemed like a ridiculously lopsided deal in fav of the hawks. now seeing the full picture and the rest of the deals it kinda makes sense. the texans were in a horrible position with clowney and did the best they could at that moment in that market. they still should have dealt with clowney a lot earlier. his value would have been a lot higher pre-draft imo.

                  Your wrong it's still bad for the Texans, they are paying half the contract, Mingo was getting cut, Martin may have been practice sqaud, plus if clowney leaves we get the 3rd round pick back.

                I thought free agent was someone you sign after the season. But Seahawks got a "free" agent.

                        The clowny trade sucked. They got at best backups as players and a conditional 3rd rounder. They would have gotten a 3rd round compensation pick for him, and he had 0 leverage. Once game day started he would have been losing 1 million a day, and once injuries happen somebody may have given something real for him. Good luck to the Texans getting a new GM now

                          @rudy zeron eh I'm not sure either "breaks out." Why? Because Mingo is going into his 7th or 8th season and now on his 6th or 7th team. Then Martin can't seem to keep enough weight on to be consistently great on the line and isn't very good in coverage.

                          @rudy zeron so there is always a chance Mingo breaks out. The problem is it isn't a good chance.

                          I think at least one of those two guys might become a well known name in Texas if they play them enough. Remember this words

                        Pete Carroll is a great coach, this defense is scary.....
                        and Wilson is Wilson, HOF QB.
                        They are the sleeper team of 2019.

                          The problem with Chris’s theory that they didn’t “get jobbed” is both the players were going to get cut and you could have signed them then...and you were going to get a 3rd anyway if you let clowney walk after he played the year. So you literally could have had your cake and eaten it too.

                            Marcus Mingo was 100% getting cut. Martin had a shot to make the team but was probably the odd man out and would have languished away on the bench anyway after drafting LJ Collier . It was either him or griffin getting cut, but griffin is solid on special teams so Martin, Mingo, and Austin Calitro we’re out.

                            All this talk over the clown, who's best season was nine sacks while playing next to j.j. watt. Lmfao even j.j. little brother t.j. has a better sack season then the clown. T.j. has been in the nfl two years. Media hype has been pure stupidity on the clown since he made one big hit in college. Truth

                              In 2016 he was a second team all pro and help the texans win a playoff game. Remember the interception against the raiders? The texans defense also finished number 1 in total yards that year. Then in 2017, only clowney and chandler jones had 20+ TFLs and 20+ QB hits. He also finished that year with 9.5sacks. Both seasons were without JJ watt. Think and do some research before you speak

                              Everyone thinks for some reason that Clowny is a sack master. He’s not that kind of player. He’s best against the run and if that’s what the Seahawks were looking for than that’s great. Does he improve their defensive line? Absolutely but his addition will not make them the best D line in the league. He will not effect the qb like a Von Miller or Garrett and as we all know today’s NFL is about passing the ball and effecting the passer. Clowny more times than not will not do that.

                              @dylan dickey what? You don't let a great pass rushing DT walk. Ever. They are so rare that keeping a great pass rushing DT (who is also great against the run) is more valuable than a great pass rushing DE. I'd say try to keep all 3 depending what they want but put more effort into Clowney and Reed.

                                            Bill I think you must not remember when Ansah is healthy is a double digit sacks and clowney makes everyone better so Bobby will be better K.J. etc if you listen to the man speak he says the same thing 😭😭

                                            @Tyler Manning No they don't. Clowney is good but he's not an elite pass rusher. Ansah is declining and constantly injured, Reed is out for the first half of the year. Those are the 3 best players on that line, and only one is truly elite and he wont be around the first half of the season. The back-end is very weak, they're going to have a lot of issues against good QB's this year, especially if Ansah is as bad as I think he will be and Clowney is doing all the heavy lifting. Clowney definitely helps them out though and makes them a lot better going into the year.

                                            I'm a Seahawks fan and even I think that statement is a stretch mainly because of the secondary-but I will say I am excited to see what JC can do and as far as LJ Collier, the guy hasn't played one snap so the jury is still out on him.

                                            Mingo usually gets man handled even when he played LB Martin is solid tho

                                            So clowney isn't fast? In fact he has Wide receiver speed and is 6'5 260 dummmy boy you can't replace that

                                              @OG77013 because he had all the power as to where he wanted to go. He wanted Seattle. Duane Brown called him over a month ago and convinced him to come to Seattle. Him not signing his franchise tag allowed him to pick and choose yes or no to a trade.
