  • Florio’s source mentioned that Seahawks owner Paul Allen doesn’t get emotional or worried about the potential absence of a player who fails to show up while under contract.

Texans DL coach Anthony Weaver mentioned that OLB Jadeveon Clowney has been “very limited” regarding on-the-field work, but he looks great overall.

“He’s been very limited in terms of what he’s done on the field, but he looks great,” Weaver said, via Houston Chronicle. “He looks great, and I know that’s the plan to get him as physically strong as we can just so hopefully we can avoid some of those injuries he’s had in the past that have nagged him throughout the season. So, I’m excited. He’s in good spirits and when he’s in good spirits, I’m in good spirits.

We have Clowney featured in our Top 25 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.
