Multiple outlets report that the Seahawks have agreed to a deal with Houston that will send Jadeveon Clowney to Seattle for a 3rd-round pick and a couple of lower-level players. Ian Rapoport reports that Clowney is said to be in the best shape he has been for years and should be ready to jump into the Seattle lineup right away. Moving to the Seahawks’ 4-3 base defense should mean DL eligibility for Clowney across IDP leagues — if you’re league hosting site makes adjustments this late in the year

Texans DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney doesn't plan to report until just before the start of the regular season, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Houston franchise-tagged Clowney in the offseason, and then the 2 sides failed to reach a longer-term deal before the deadline to do so with tagged players. He's not officially holding out, because Clowney isn't under contract until he signs the franchise tender. Clowney has overcome early-career durability issues to appear in all but 1 game over the past 2 seasons. But missing all of camp and the preseason adds some risk on that front. Clowney's value to the Texans D is greater than his IDP worth, though he's more valuable where he qualifies as a DL.

The Texans are placing the franchise tag on DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney. The 26-year-old posted 9 and 9.5 sacks the past 2 seasons. He carries much more IDP value in fantasy football leagues that give him DL eligibility -- and Clowney probably should in most places. Pro Football Focus counted his most snaps, by far, at the "right end outside" position -- the spot opposite the "LEO" pass-rusher spot that has gained prominence as former Seattle defensive coaches have spread around the league. Where he's merely a LB, Clowney figures to remain more of an IDP spot starter.

Texans OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (groin) is active for today's game against the Broncos. He entered the day questionable but looks fine for normal IDP usage in a solid pass-rushing matchup.

Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He didn't appear on the Wednesday injury report but then was limited Thursday and Friday. Clowney says he's ready to play against the Broncos, though. We'll confirm his status Sunday.
