:rofl89:  the guys a cuckold

 

See Swearinger, D.J. and how he lead........he let's him get away with blasting coaches, teammates, etc. to the media three times before issuing any punishment. 

 

Except he was cut outright in the middle of the season. So...

Trent is worth more than Tunsil. That being said, Miami is in the middle of some seriously baffling offseason moves. They traded for Rosen, but then signed Fitzpatrick and decided to start him over Josh. That makes no sense at all! I dont like Rosen, but if you are willing to trade for a guy 1 year removed from a top 10 pick, are in a rebuilding phase, and have no instability anywhere, what in the world are you doing here? Start that man.

 

We should capitalize on Miami's rebuff here. Trent for a 2020 1st, Clowney, and a pick swap somewhere.

The 16th week of a 17 week season seems like a bit of a stretch for "middle of the season" lol

I think in my newest ideal scenario, we trade Trent for a 1st, a fourth and Clowney and then turn around and trade Clowney for a first or second.

 

I now believe Trent when he says he's not coming back because of what he said on the podcast.

The issue with Clowney is he's playing this year on the tag and teams can't negotiate with him until after the season...

 

But if the Texans offered the Skins a first + Clowney for Williams I'd strongly consider it if we had some assurance Clowney would consider an extension (of course, Clowney controls the narrative on where he goes because he can just not sign his tender).

 

 

And that's enormous.  I'm not trading Trent for what amounts to a rental and a hope and prayer later.

I would in a heartbeat if it came with a first round pick.

Clowney would just be a bonus and we could have fun watching him all year and then get a comp pick when he leaves. 

Hell ya I'd be all over that.

Well actually they signed Fitzpatrick first (March).

 

 

San Diego possibly as a trading partner?

 

Chargers GM Tom Telesco said LT Russell Okung (blood clots) will not be ready for Week 1.

Okung is still recovering from a pulmonary embolism, something that has become far too common in the NFL this offseason after Bengals LG Clint Boling retired due to a blood clot and now Patriots C David Andrews' season is in jeopardy because of one. Okung's was discovered in June. It's a very serious medical issue. Second-year UDFA Trent Scott has been filling in for Okung.

Chances are we are not interested in Clowneys 100mil impending contract, and he apparently wants a contender which counts us out short term, but that's damn interesting information flying about. 

 

You reckon Trent would be truly interested in playing for the Texans. I would like to think so at this stage..

Middle of the season my ass.....  He was waived on Dec. 24th after running his mouth on Dec. 22nd following the loss to the Titans with one game left in the season.  Some leader......a real leader would have done something the first time it happened, with making it perfectly clear in training camp there would be none of that bull**** going on.

 

He got two chances to many before anything was even done.

Ill admit I’m intrigued by the idea of adding Clowney to this group of pass rushers but assets (draft picks) are probably the shrewder move. Sounds like they are looking for a first and second, but would bet they settle for a first and third.

Clowney flew to Miami to meet with their HC - Miami is not a contender. He wants PAYING. I would not want to be the team to do that.

 

Trent is from Houston.

Agreed. I also knew he was from Houston. He also wants to 'win' apparently so do the Texans give him that.....

 

Very intriguing situation. Bruce is taking heat, I think he's playing this well so far.

Trent isn't being traded until 2020 and Bruce will botch the compensation. You can bank on it.

 

Waiting until 2020 would botch the compensation in and of itself. Two years of team control vs. a rental is a huge deal.

I get so annoyed seeing all these teams making small trades...especially this year, lots of OL moving for cheap. It makes me wonder if we even do our due diligence on stuff like this as an organization.

If it’s a first and Clowney I would because the comp pick for him would be a third anyways

If he was traded here, didn't sign the tender and then signed as a FA is it still in the comp pick realm?  Guess I need to see if how Bell counted this year.

Bell was a 3rd.  So nevermind.

If Trent sits out for the year (his choice) we would still control him for 2 years after, I thought.

Is even in question now?  Of course not because they are too busy winning off the field.

Oh I suppose if that's how it works then we lose less value...but he'd still be a year older.

Texans just cut Bryan Anger. I wonder how he feels about that.

Cutting this punter clearly means Houston is making room to trade for Trent, right @NickyJ ?

If we actually turned down a 1st + Clowney for Trent this is our 2nd most ridiculous trade situation. 

 

#1 is offering Cincy two 1st round picks for Ochocinco, which somehow they were dumb enough to decline. I don't think the all-sides stupidity of that will ever be topped.
