Jadeveon Clowney, Gould not attending minicamp

Neither Jadeveon Clowney nor Robbie Gould have signed up their own franchise tags using their respective teams, and that’s not the only thing they have in common.
Clowney and Gould will not attend the mandatory minicamps for your Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers, respectively, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.
Both offseason workouts have been scheduled to kick off Tuesday, but don’t anticipate either player to function there.
Of both players to get the franchise tag in 2019, just Clowney, Gould and Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett have not signed a long-term deal, after or without being traded. While Jarrett has signed his tag and intends to attend Atlanta’s mandatory work out, Clowney and Gould have different ideas.

Clowney is aiming to get a long-term bargain in Houston, as would be the Texans. Back in April, then-Texans general manager Brian Gaine reported that registering the Pro Bowl pass rusher into a long-term contract was”still the plan.” The problem is now Gaine is no longer at the building, fired a week from nowhere. It is unclear whether Houston’s interim GM Chris Olsen has the ability to strike a bargain with Clowney while the Texans’ search for Gaine’s replacement continues.
The former first-overall pick already did not attend voluntary OTAs to make a statement about the matter. Texans coach Bill O’Brien stated in May he does not have any idea when Clowney will go back to the staff,”I have every belief and trust that JD is working on his own and becoming ready for when he will decide to show up.”
Clowney is set to make around $15.97 million on the tag, if and if he signs it. The deadline for the two sides to come to an agreement on a contract extension in July 15, roughly one month away and before the beginning of training camp.
Gould, on the other hand, doesn’t desire a long-term solution together with San Francisco. In fact, he wants the opportunity to depart the 49ers and requested a trade before this 2019 NFL Draft. The Niners haven’t acquiesced.
“We understand that he doesn’t need to live here long term and he’s made that obvious to us, and we get that,” Niners coach Shanahan stated in April. “But, we do have a franchise tag and he’s that great of a kicker he’s worth franchising. So, unfortunately we know we are not going to have him long-term here. I believe that’s been fairly clear. No hard feelings about that.”
The Niners will not be moving into minicamp kicker-less; San Francisco also uses fourth-year booter Jon Brown.
The 37-year-old Gould is place to create $4.97 million on the label, but whether he signs it and plays for San Francisco at all in 2019 remains to be seen.
