Texans General Manager Brian Gaine described contract talks with linebacker Jadeveon Clowney as “amicable” earlier this week Mike Reilly Jersey , but those nice feelings are reportedly not going to generate an agreement on a long-term deal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Clowney is expected to play out the final year of his deal. It’s something that’s been discussed as a possibility for some time and Clowney’s health is the biggest reason why the team would like to wait on any new deal.

Clowney played 16 games for the first time in his NFL career last season, but had arthroscopic knee surgery after the season and isn’t practicing fully yet. Gaine has said on multiple occasions that he is going to stick to the Texans’ tradition of not negotiating contracts once the regular season gets underway, which leaves Clowney tasked with staying healthy and productive as he pushes for a commitment from the team.

Should Clowney do that and fail to sign a deal with the team in the first weeks of the offseason, the franchise tag could be in play to ensure Clowney remains in Houston.

Former NFL player and general manager Matt Millen says he is being treated for a rare disease that has robbed his heart of most of its normal function.

The 60-year-old Millen told the Morning Call in Allentown Mathieu Perreault Jersey , Pennsylvania that he has been diagnosed with amyloidosis, a life-threatening illness that may force him to seek a heart transplant. Millen said he has been receiving chemotherapy once a week to treat the condition that left his heart functioning at just 30 percent.

Millen played 12 seasons as a linebacker in the NFL for the Raiders, 49ers and Redskins – and won four Super Bowl rings.

He later served as Detroit’s general manager and has also spent three decades as a broadcaster. Millen told the Morning Call he plans to return to the booth in the fall.

Millen’s heart issues began in 2011, when he first felt chest pain while exercising. Heart tests Alex Tuch Jersey Kids , including a cardiac catheterization, showed nothing wrong.

Amyloidosis often goes undiagnosed because its symptoms mimic those of more common diseases. But Millen’s symptoms grew worse over time, and he visited doctors for six years before finally getting diagnosed with the rare disease last July.

”I know what you have,” Millen recalled the doctor telling him Zach Parise Jersey , ”and you’re not going to like it.”

Millen’s case reached the point where he was risking the kind of heart failure that would eventually require a transplant. Millen spent the week before the Super Bowl undergoing tests at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

”When a bump comes up in the road, you deal with it,” Millen said. ”It’s ridiculous to feel sorry for yourself. I’m thankful for what I have, and I’ll take what I get.”
