Clowney to Colts' Luck: Better have your head on a swivel

Before Jadeveon Clowney officially became a member of the Houston Texans after the team took him with the first-overall pick of the NFL Draft Thursday night, the former South Carolina defensive end was already dishing out the trash talk to other members in the AFC South.
Wednesday, during one of Clowney's many pre-draft appearances, he reportedly told Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck "better have his head on a swivel" if he and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt get to team up.

Now Clowney has to make good on the threat when the Texans face Luck and the Colts for the first of two occasions during the upcoming season on October 9 in Houston.
While Watt has refrained from the trash talking of his division rivals with the improved, potentially terrifying Texans defensive line, the two-time Pro Bowl pass rusher seems to be eager about the opportunity to work with Clowney, being among the first to call him after being drafted.
