The Houston Texans have placed the franchise tag on defensive end/outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney. He was set to be a free agent before this announcement.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this is a non-exclusive franchise tag. He is also reporting that the two sides are working towards a long-term agreement.

The Texans could tag Clowney as a linebacker to attempt to save money. However, he could appeal that and argue that he is primarily a defensive end to get the money he potentially loses by being a linebacker.

“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,” Texans general manager Brian Gaine said. “This gives us both an opportunity to continue to do so.”

Teams have until Tuesday at 4 pm to place franchise tags on players. By giving a player a franchise tag — and the player signs it — the player would play until a pre-determined salary for the 2019 season.
