The rumors are confirmed, the Houston Texans’ offensive tackle Duane Brown is a no-show at the mandatory minicamp.
The word out is that Brown might be unhappy about his contract deal runs through 2018 and gives him a salary base of $9.65 million for 2017 and $9.75 million for 2018.
Coach Bill O’Brien didn’t have much to say about Duane Brown’s absence, but what he did say was, “I don’t have much to say on that. Obviously, Duane knows how I feel about him. We’d love to have him here, but at the end of the day, the guys who are here, that’s who we’re coaching.”
It’s also a fact that since the minicamp is mandatory Brown could be fined for the days he’s missed and if skips all three days, he could get a fine of $80,405 total.
If Brown extends his absence to the training camp, he can incur more fines too.
