Clowney will also receive a signing bonus worth $14.518 million dollars along with the full guaranteed deal, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. The league's current collective bargaining agreement has a rookie pay scale included, which has sped up the process of negotiating draft pick's contracts.

The team has said it will be moving the former first team All-American defensive end to the outside linebacker position to better suit defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's 3-4 scheme.
