Clowney to Seattle.....................

Clowney to the Seahawks for a #3 and two players .

In the end, the Texans must have decided to trade Jadeveon Clowney for the best available offer. Thankfully for Russell Wilson & Co., they happened to be the team left standing. Viewed as a series of moves, the Seahawks managed to acquire significant draft capital while swapping out one star edge rusher for another. Bill O'Brien's Texans, meanwhile, somehow failed to come away with either.

In April, the Seahawks sent 26-year-old franchised defensive end Frank Clark and a swap of third-round picks to the Chiefs for a first-round pick and a 2020 second-rounder. On Saturday, they acquired the 26-year-old Clowney, who is on a slightly smaller franchise tag after being billed as an outside linebacker, for a third-round pick and backup linebackers Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin. This is the point in which you text your friends who are Texans fans and ask if they're OK.

Fleeced: Texans lose big after bungling Jadeveon Clowney trade
Why were the Seahawks able to get Clowney for a fraction of what Clark cost the Chiefs? And do those reasons make any sense? Let's run through them to figure out how the Seahawks pulled off a heist that doesn't make any sense at first glance:
