Instead of paying him his contract from his draft, the Texans may take a look at locking up Clowney for a multi-year contract and has the potential to become the highest paid player in the NFL that is not a Quarterback. That contract is still held by Von Miller who makes 114.1 million dollars.
The Rockets already have a championship roster in place, and may need that one piece (LeBron), but the more depth a championship team can have, the better they can beat their opponent down the stretch. The Rockets addressed an issue they have been dealing with and that is a backup center behind Capela.
The Rockets have been quiet around the deadline with Morey publicly stating that he will not be disrupting the chemistry built around this team. Morey feels as if this is the best team he has assembled and doesn’t want to make any big roster changes.
Deshaun Watson has talked about nothing but the Super Bowl the past week. He even has some huge expectations for the Texans coming soon. Watson wants to retire with more rings than Brady, as he said in an NFL interview at Minnesota last week.
