Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, citing league sources, reports that Texans LT Duane Brown is not expected to be in attendance for the start of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.
Brown already sat out of voluntary workouts, as he’s reportedly unhappy with his contract, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Offensive tackles made out well in free agency this year with the top players securing between $12-$13 million per year.
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.
