Von Miller: Flacco 'looks like a Super Bowl MVP' at minicamp

Von Miller: Flacco 'looks like a Super Bowl MVP' at minicamp It's safe to say Joe Flacco is making a good early impression on his Denver Broncos teammates. The Broncos kicked off their three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday, and star pass-rusher Von Miller thought his 34-year-old quarterback looked like the player who led the Baltimore Ravens to a championship "He looks like a Super Bowl MVP to me," Miller told reporters, according to Arnie Stapleton of The Associated Press. "Today he had a play-action, rolled out to the right and threw the ball from the opposite 20 to the opposite 15. Now, I don't know how far that is. "He threw the ball far. He can throw 80 yards, easy.

Texans franchise tagged Clowney in March. Apr 25 | 2:07PM. Could Texans star Jadeveon Clowney be an option? Ahead of Thursday's NFL draft, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that As the Jets mandatory minicamp kicked off in Florham Park on Tuesday, head coach Adam Gase probably

The Texans placed the non-exclusive franchise designation on DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney . “Today, we have placed the franchise tag on Jadeveon Clowney , but our goal is to continue to work with his representation on a long-term contract,” said Texans General Manager Brian Gaine.

Oct 14, 2018; Houston, TX, USA; Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (90) runs onto the field prior to the game against the Buffalo Bills at NRG Stadium.

The Jadeveon Clowney contract situation has reached its next phase: a holdout.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Clowney is not expected to attend Texans mandatory minicamp, which runs Tuesday through Thursday. It's the only portion of the Texans' offseason that is mandatory -- until training camp begins in late July, of course.

Back in early March, the Texans franchise tagged Clowney. Under the tag, Clowney would earn roughly $16 million, but Clowney is likely pursuing a long-term contract that would pay him like one of the league's top edge defenders. In April, the Cowboys gave DeMarcus Lawrence a contract worth $21 million per season. Only Khalil Mack, who got a new contract with the Bears last autumn, makes more on an annual basis ($23.5 million) among all edge rushers. That's the kind of money Clowney could secure with a long-term deal.

Report: Texans will pursue Patriots’ Caserio for GM job

Report: Texans will pursue Patriots’ Caserio for GM job The Houston Texans on Friday fired Brian Gaine as GM after one season on the job.

Jadeveon Clowney is the second player the Texans have used a franchise tag on in the franchise's 17-season history. Under NFL collective bargaining agreement rules governing franchise players, they aren’t required to report for offseason activities, training camp or games until they sign the tender.

The Texans have franchise tagged outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney , according to a team announcement. If no long-term deal is reached between For his part, Clowney is expected to take his sweet time when it comes to signing the tender. Without a long-term deal or a signed tender, the

The two sides have until July 15 to reach a multi-year agreement. The only problem? The Texans don't even have a general manager right now.

On Friday, the team fired Brian Gaine less than 18 months after hiring him. According to Yahoo's Charles Robinson, Gaine made "zero progress extending Clowney" in addition to shopping him to the Chiefs back in April. The Chiefs ended up trading for Frank Clark.

The search for Gaine's replacement is well underway, with the Texans reportedly eyeing Bill Belichick's right-hand man, Nick Caserio. But until the Texans hire a new general manager, they might find it difficult to negotiate a new contract with Clowney considering their next general manager will want a say in how much money they commit to a talented player who carries injury concerns.

The Texans and Jadeveon Clowney haven't found agreement on a long-term deal with a little more than 24 The Texans list Clowney as a defensive end/outside linebacker in their announcement, which will likely set off a debate about what salary Clowney would be line for if he plays under the tag .

Since getting drafted No. 1 overall in 2014, Clowney has appeared in 62 of 80 possible games -- with 12 of his absences coming in his rookie season. He's racked up 29 sacks, 67 quarterback hits, 64 tackles for a loss, and 11 passes defended. The sack numbers might not totally be there -- he's never reached 10 sacks in a single season -- but Clowney's ability to impact a game without bringing down the quarterback is undeniable. He's also coming off the highest-graded season of his career, according to Pro Football Focus.

For now, there's no reason for the Texans to panic. It's only June. Despite what coaches might say, mandatory minicamp really isn't that important. Heck, the Patriots just cancelled their final two OTAs, which means they won't reconvene until training camp. Until Clowney's holdout drags into training camp and the preseason, there's no reason to be overly concerned.

Report: Edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney to miss Texans minicamp Houston Texans edge defender Jadeveon Clowney will miss the club's veteran minicamp, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Clowney was expected to reset the defensive player market before starting his 2018, but offseason knee surgery and 18 missed games in 4.5 seasons kept the two sides from There’s still time for the Texans to pencil Clowney in for next year and beyond, even if that’s by way of the franchise tag .

That said, it's at least a little problematic that the next Texans general manager will only have a month (maybe less) to sort out a long-term deal with Clowney.
