Plus, since Clowney would just be a one-year rental, he might not bring back a high draft pick. Of course, the Texans could just keep Clowney and tag him again after this season, but then he would count at least $19.2 million against next year's cap for them. The Texans still need to sign other important free agent players on their roster like Lamar Miller, Bradley Roby, Whitney Mercilus, and Johnathan Joseph (if they bring him back). Interesting that both starting CBs for the Texans are going to be free agents after this season.

    If the Texans aren't willing to trade Clowney for Jimmy Smith, I wonder if they would trade Whitney Mercilus for him? Mercilus is 29 years old, and is a free agent after this season, but the Ravens could sign him to an extension. He isn't as flashy as Clowney, but would still represent an upgrade over what the Ravens currently have at OLB. Although, I am not sure if Mercilus is that much better than Judon.

    Jimmy plus Hurst for Clowney.

    With the injury to Young a Jimmy Smith+ pick for Clowney would seemingly be off the table. Is it even possible if the Texans were willing to accept a second round pick for Clowney to fit him under the cap?

    This almost made me laugh out loud.

    That would be the worst trade in the history of football for the Texans. Just straight god awful for them.

    Ironically James Hurst generated a lot of draft buzz by shutting down Clowney in the 2013 opener. He got a bit of hype going before snapping his leg and going undrafted
