Jadeveon Clowney’s Rookie Season Is Done

By FITSNEWS || Former University of South Carolina All-American Jadeveon Clowney – the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft – is officially done for the year.

The Houston Texans announced this week that Clowney would be placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the 2014 season.  The 6-foot-6, 270-pound defensive end suffered a meniscus tear during his NFL debut that required surgery and hasn’t been the same player since.

He returned seven weeks later, but was struggling to recapture his trademark explosiveness off the line and was experiencing swelling in his knee.

According to, “after meeting with renowned orthopedic surgeon James Andrews on Wednesday, it was determined that Clowney needs a second surgery on his right knee.”

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien declined to say what specific procedure Clowney would have – but the team is hoping he’ll be able to use the offseason to rehabilitate the injury.

“This guy’s a football player. He wants to play football, he wants to be good. He was disappointed,” O’Brien said of his team’s top pick.

Interesting …

According to a report published by last month, the Texans are beginning to show signs of frustration with their talented rookie – who signed a fully guaranteed $22.3 million contract with a $14.5 million up-front bonus earlier this year.

“What they want is for him to start showing some maturity and learn to play through these some of these ailments,”’s Ian Rapoport reported, adding the Texans’ coaching staff had become “frustrated” with their top pick.

Clowney played only 140 snaps during his rookie year – recording seven tackles in four games.

So far, the NFL press is giving Clowney – whose work ethic was questioned during his college career – the benefit of the doubt.

“There isn’t much Clowney could do,” columnist Frank Schwab of Shutdown Corner noted. “If his injury is severe enough to require a second surgery, it’s hard to believe he was milking anything. But the dream of seeing J.J. Watt and Clowney terrorizing offenses will have to wait another year.”

But the dream of seeing J.J. Watt and Clowney terrorizing offenses will have to wait another year.

It will have to wait a whole lot more than a year.

The Clown will play sparingly the remainder of the year for USC. A desperate NFL Team will offer him a wheel barrow load of money next year. He will play a few games until he realizes the other teams don’t care about “The Hit”. other than the hit they put on him

Halfway through the season he will start suffering a series of debilitating injuries ( hang nail, nasal drip, pink eye, jock itch, fever blisters, etc) and retire before the end of the first season.

A few weeks after retirement he will get a notice from the bank notifying him his checks are bouncing due to insufficient funds. His attorney will sadly inform him that the money he was promised was based on his promise to play. Unlike his stay at USC the NFL ain’t going to kiss his ass.

However his future is still bright. Once he gets off the night shift at Pilot Auto and Truck Stop he will go over to DOT and become the biggest Stop and Go Sign Man ever to wear a yellow reflective vest

and exactly how does that make you correct on this situation? You bring up more about his money (claiming “a few weeks after retirement” that hasn’t happened yet) instead of an accurate account of an actual injury that he will bounce back from. Since he will play again, and do well from everything people a hell of a lot more qualified than you say, and since he also has so much more money than you would ever get in your life even when you add in your whole friend network and the money your mom made on Two Notch blowing crack head Africans has ever amassed. So I have to ask, instead of being nothing more than a trolling hater, what makes your old post worthy? (or any idiot that upvoted it either for that matter?) You are all jealous haters that should be more worried about still being in mommy’s basement than bashing a man with an injury. How is William Perry doing by the way? I’d ask about a number 1 overall pick from clemsux, but your team has never had one, so I will have to go with the fridge. Go home troll, your mommy left out milk and cookies for you!

Hey little bitty…

Your boy needs to man up.

Real players put on a brace and crush their rivals, see them driven before them and hear the lamentations of their women/fanbois.

idcydm December 5, 2014 at 7:53 am

That’s a whole lot of butt hurt you got there “little bitty hater”, you must be one of Clowney’s hanger on leaches.

Take your own advice, “Go home troll”.

little bitty hater December 5, 2014 at 8:08 am

butt hurt about what? you guys are just trolls that hope another man fails for no other reason than jealousy. I do agree with TBG that he needs to man up but it is an injury, its not anything about lack of trying. quit being just a hater and get a life. Your mommy’s basement must be nice

idcydm December 5, 2014 at 11:13 am

I could care less about Clowney or any other pro-football player you “little bitty hater” troll. They chose to play a game that tears at their bodies and rattles their brain, they get just what they are asking for.

Take your butt hurt back to your mommy’s basement, there will always be people that don’t agree with you.

little bitty hater December 5, 2014 at 1:47 pm

aww the troll calls me for being a troll. Then acts like he isn’t the one in mommy’s basement. And again who is butt hurt? Did your mommy spank you too hard. go cry to her some more troll

Why, you need a baysitter?

idcydm December 4, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Don’t watch much pro-football and could care less about it. A bunch of over paid self indulgent morons playing a game that rattles their brains. The only thing good about it, the commercials during the Super Bowl.

One football fan lived and died by his favorite football team. He had no time for his family or friends. He could be found only on the
couch, a six-pack or part of one at his side, and his eyes glued to the TV screen. One day his wife marched up in front of the screen, opened her bath robe and in all her naked glory said with finality, “Okay, buster – PLAY ME OR TRADE ME..!!

TontoBubbaGoldstein December 5, 2014 at 5:29 am

“Okay, buster – PLAY ME OR TRADE ME..!!”

“Hold on dear…the Two Minute Warning’s coming up.”

All those years of being coddled are finally coming to a head. I hope football works out for him, because that’s likely all he’s got going for him. If he has any brain cells, he’ll get a financial manager and not end up on the street with his mega-mansion foreclosed on, his Bentley and Ferrari collection repossessed, and child support payments to multiple baby-mamas/strippers.

please December 5, 2014 at 9:20 pm

your jealousy of this man is showing again. itkills you that he will be better off than you financially doesn’t it? What a pity you had no talent.

Squishy123 December 5, 2014 at 11:09 am

$14.5 million up front, 7 tackles for the season… that’s an awful expensive player to have on the roster.

And STILL nothing about Demetrius Summers getting busted…

I know December 5, 2014 at 9:23 pm

yeah, it should be up there with reruns the woman beatings up at Clemsux, or smoking Sammy potkins getting busted driving high with illegal pills

Did he ever get those bone spurs removed,he complained about in his last season at Carolina? He said he was going to have surgery. For bone spurs? Plantar Fascia I’d believe,but I knew this guy was a fraud since then.Don’t spend it all in one place.
