The Houston Texans decided this summer to not sign star Jadeveon Clowney. The three-time Pro Bowler was willing to hold out for most of the season until he got a deal done but instead the Texans traded him to the Seahawks.

Terms for the #Seahawks trade for Jadeveon Clowney: Seattle gets Clowney, the #Texans get a third-round pick, LB Jacob Martin, and pass-rusher Barkevious Mingo, source said.

The trade was immediately panned on Twitter.

Bill O’Brien’s first major act as all-powerful Texans czar is trading away the key player from his only playoff victory, for peanuts on the dollar, because he didn’t plan ahead.

If this ridiculously one sided trade happened in my fantasy league we would have had a 1000-email thread of finger pointing, protests and insults. https://t.co/xdZizu048f
