Texans Activate LT Duane Brown, Waive OT Kendall Lamm

The Houston Texans announced that they have activated LT Duane Brown to the 53-man roster after ending his holdout and waived OT Kendall Lamm in a corresponding roster move.

Brown was holding out for a new contract, which triggered a de-escalator in his contract that will cost him $250,000 for the 2017 season. Brown also sat out of voluntary workouts.

However, it looks like he wanted to ensure that he’ll still credit for this season.

Brown, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2008. He’s currently in the sixth year of his seven-year, $56.2 million contract that includes $22.08 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $9.65 million and $9.75 million over the next two years.

In 2016, Brown appeared in 12 games and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 14 offensive tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
