2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Jadeveon Clowney

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.


It was a mixed bag for Jadeveon Clowney in 2015, with some impressive play and nagging injuries that detracted from what he did well. Working his way back from micro fracture surgery, Clowney ended up being ready for the start of the season and appeared in all but three regular season game and missed the Wild Card round with a Lisfranc injury. When Clowney was healthy on the field, he showed that he is an above average presence and his best work came in some of the biggest games of the season. 


Clowney has his first full off season where he can be dedicated to NFL training and not rehabbing an injury. Working in California with Jay Glazer in MMA style training, Clowney is taking some solid steps to get ready for the season. Teamed with J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus, there might not be a better pass rushing trio in the NFL if they can get it right on the field. 2016 will be an important year for Clowney, but it appears he is prepping for a season of big expectations.
