    Why did we franchise him as a LB instead of a DE? Just seems kinda petty no?

    Unless something has changed, apparently, that designation is not up to the Texans (link):

    Don't throw away a 1st round pick!! Pay the man!! Why skimp on money for less than players when we can't even get to a SuperBowl. We need our best players locked loaded and ready to defend.

    Watt isn't a young guy anymore, and has had numerous repairs. He might last another season without a breakdown but who knows. We need to keep we Clowney and pay the man to ensure we have the best possible QB sacking force we can muster up. The quarterbacks in our division are nothing to take lightly. Break tradition and sign him early!! Make an exception for a 1st round draft pick!!!!!

    That was never the issue with Clowney. This is all about valuation.

    Well none of them are worth as much as they demand, but its a greedy business and either we pay him more than he is worth and lock him up early, or settle with probably paying even more down the road if he stays healthy. That, or we let one of our best defensive players go when that time comes and settle for a cheaper and less effective replacement. Their salaries are skyrocketing.

    Personally, I want to lock him in forever but can see both sides. Part of me wants to say "Get lost, and don't let the door hit ya on the way out ya selfish pig" to all the greedy guys who demand ridiculous salaries for a 16 game season.

    This franchise has no real pressure to win the superbowl. Starts from ownership on down.

    Trade him for an established offensive lineman. Great plan, do it.
