Contract negotiations between Jadeveon Clowney and the Houston Texans fell apart as of late, with the Texans star defensive end threatening to skip regular-season games.
With Clowney one of the best defenders in the league (when healthy), it came as no surprise that teams around the NFL became interested.
Amongst the Eagles and Dolphins, the Seahawks were clearly interested as well.
As of Saturday morning, the Texans agreed to a trade that would send the former 26-year-old former No. 1 overall pick to Seattle pending Clowney passes a physical.
Scoopage: SEA & HOU have agreed to trade parameters re: Jadeveon Clowney contingent upon Clowney & other players involved passing physicals. Still lot of moving parts but believed Clowney, who rejected going to Miami at first, is headed for his physical with Hawks. @NFLONFOX

The Seahawks are sending a 2020 third-round pick plus defensive players in return.
Clowney will replace Frank Clark, whom the Seahawks traded to the Chiefs last season.
