Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks made some of the biggest NFL deals and have changed everything in the game. Jadeveon Clowney and Laremy Tunsil have changed teams and it would have a domino effect on all the 32 NFL teams. The Seahawks got Clowney in exchange for a third-round pick, Barkevious Mingo and Jacob Martin.
Blockbuster: The #Dolphins are trading franchise LT Laremy Tunsil and WR Kenny Stills to the #Texans in exchange for a huge package of picks, including a first-rounder, sources tell me, @MikeGarafolo, and @TomPelissero. The moves are contingent on players passing physicals.

The Texans sent their future picks, Johnson Bademosi and Julian Davenport to Miami in exchange for Tunsil, Kenny Stills and two future picks. Both the sides of deals are so imbalanced that it would have the biggest impact on the 2019 NFL season.
Jadeveon Clowney deal was Rushed
Houston Texans had one of the best defensive ends in the form of Jadeveon Clowney and they traded him for few picks and players people have barely heard about. Bill O’Brien is a head coach who has no idea how to manage a team ever. The Texans thought they could do well without a GM and it turned out so bad.
Seattle's front seven is now led by:
* Bobby Wagner: 4x All Pro
* Jadeveon Clowney: 3x Pro Bowl
* K.J. Wright: 4 100+ tackle seasons
* Jarran Reed: 10.5 sacks in 2018
* L.J. Collier: 2019 1st round pick
* Ziggy Ansah: 48 career sacks

The Seahawks got the best deal as they got Clowney while playing only half of his salary as Houston have already paid $7 million of his franchise tag. The Texans thought that Clowney would be a free agent next season and they won’t get a better deal. Hence they rushed the whole Jadeveon deal and it has totally shifted the power from Texans to the Seahawks.
Laremy Tunsil to Texans Impacts Everyone
Laremy Tunsil was the only good name in Miami Dolphins who is also now traded out of the team. There were reports about the Dolphins player rioting in case Tunsil is moved out but they still went with the deal. While the Houston Texans got a strong offensive tackle in the form of Tunsil, their defensive side is now totally messed up.
Left tackle Laremy Tunsil is now expected to be protecting Deshaun Watson’s blindside this season.

Josh Rosen could not have asked for a more 💩 start to his career from an organizational support standpoint. I don’t care if you like the kid or not “personally”. He has been set up to fail. Nice job. 🙄

The failure of Josh Rosen to win the Week One starting job in Miami makes it much more likely that the Dolphins will draft a quarterback early in 2020.

Josh Rosen in only in his second year at Dolphins and will have to lead the broken offense. There will too much responsibility on him and the failure to deliver will result in a trade out after the 2019 season. The deals between the three teams have impacted everyone and the outcomes will soon be visible.
