There are NFL rumors stating that Jadeveon Clowney should be traded to the Dallas Cowboys and for the Houston Texans to improve their offense. However, this will break up the Texans’ great defensive core alongside J.J. Watt and makes no sense for Houston.
Jadeveon Clowney to Dallas Cowboys suggested
NFL Spin Zone suggests that Houston can trade Clowney to Dallas in exchange for a number of players. The trade suggestion has Cowboys guard Ronald Leary and safeties Barry Church or J.J. Wilcox made available for a Texans’ weak offensive line.

The Dallas Cowboys may be trying hard to get a defensive star in their line-up but the Houston Texans won’t give up Clowney mainly because they won’t want to break their defensive core.
The Houston offense could improve by trading Clowney but they are also pinning their hopes on quarterback Brock Osweiller, who could be a star after seeing limited minutes with the Denver Broncos.
One more reason why Houston won’t trade Jadeveon Clowney
Aside from not breaking their great defensive core, Houston has also seen Clowney dominate in training camp and in the preseason.
An article from NFL.com described how Clowney dominated the New Orleans Saints’ offense in a recent preseason match-up. The article also compared the Texans’ defense led by Clowney something similar to the Seattle Seahawks’ impressive defense in previous years.
Clowney was the top overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and if the Cowboys really want him they’ll give up multiple players and future first rounders.
Clowney has played for just 17 games in the last two seasons in Houston. But he showed promise last year with 4.5 sacks, 40 tackles and one forced fumble.
A Jadeveon Clowney to Dallas Cowboys trade is just too good to be true for the Dallas’ camp and unfair for Houston’s side.
