Here are the following players Texans got in return for Jadeveon Clowney

A player who gets hit with a franchise tag can't be traded unless they actually sign the tag, which is why the Steelers weren't able to trade Bell.

Instead, Clowney is reportedly heading to another team within the NFC in the Seattle Seahawks, leaving plenty of Philadelphia fans feeling frustration over the missed opportunity.

The Miami Dolphins are interested in trading for Houston Texans star Jadeveon Clowney and recently met with the pass-rusher, according to ESPN and multiple reports.

Pro Football Network learnt earlier that despite what Miami told Tunsil's agent Jimmy Sexton, the Dolphins soured on him. Seattle would have to try and work out a long-term deal with the pass-rusher, franchise tag him again, or risk losing him over the offseason.

Protecting Jared Goff has become a major priority for Los Angeles over the last two years with the unit earning a reputation for being one of the best in the league.

The trade leaves a massive hole in the Texans' defensive line, and it bolsters a Seattle line that needed a playmaker since they traded Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs for a first-round draft pick in April. He can not be traded until the tender is signed, giving him leverage over any potential deal. "I'm looking forward to getting him out there with us now".

Clowney has played since 2014 with the Texans, and his career totals include 205 tackles and 29 sacks.

Mingo was seemingly on Seattle's roster bubble.

Tunsil, who is under contract this year and has a fifth-year option for 2020, was a first-round draft pick (13th overall) of the Dolphins' in 2016. Since they have $20 million in cap space, that's no issue.

Another linebacker, Martin is a 6-foot-2, 242-pound, 2018 sixth-round pick out of Temple. Williams has played well this summer in the slot and could resume his starting gig when the regular season starts, depending on the status of Patrick Robinson.
