Seattle Seahawks pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney has open up about his recent trade to Seattle from the Houston Texans.
“I thought I was going to be in Houston and then the last call to get ready to go in for training camp like two weeks before. (Texans head coach) Bill O’Brien was like, ‘We are trading you.’ I was just like, ‘Oh, Okay,’” Clowney said during an appearance on Ian Rapoport’s RapSheet and Friends podcast. “Well, I will hold off on signing (my franchise tender) now cause I don’t know where I’m getting traded to. Because, he was like, ‘We don’t know where we’re going to send you yet, but, we are going to trade you.’”
“Miami, yeah, I didn’t want to go” Clowney said. “Send me to a team that has a chance to win, and when I hear about Seattle, Philly, also, of course, I want to go. I’ve got guys on both teams I’ve played with before. I would have loved to play for either one of the teams. So anyone of them would have worked for me.”
Clowney has a sack, a pick-6 and a forced fumble over five games with the Seahawks.
Bengals Place Dre Kirkpatrick on IR
The Cincinnati Bengals have placed veteran cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on the injured reserve, according to an official team announcement.
Kirkpatrick, 30, suffered a season ending knee injury after posting 33 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 fumble recovery for the Bengals over six games this season.
In corresponding moves, the Bengals promoted linebacker Hardy Nickerson and wide receiver Damion Willis to the active roster.
Browns’ Myles Garrett Suspended Indefinitely
Cleveland Browns’ defensive end Myles Garrett has been suspended indefinitely for his actions in a fight that broke out at the end of Thursday night’s game between the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Garrett will be banned for the remainder of the 2018 season, and is likely going to be hit with a stiffer punishment once the NFL completes it’s investigation into the incident. Garrett could also be facing legal action from the attorney’s of Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph.
Garrett, 23, has notched 10 sacks for the Browns this season.
Eagles’ Darren Sproles Done For Season
The Philadelphia Eagles will be without veteran running back Darren Sproles for the rest of the season, according to an official team announcement.
Sproles suffered a partial tear of his right hip flexor during the Eagles’ contest against the New York Jets back in early October, that he recently re-aggravated.
Sproles, 36, re-signed with the Eagles in July, and this injury will likely have many people questioning if he will be back next season, or if he will decide to announced his retirement from the NFL.
