Brown isn’t the only veteran left tackle to holdout of OTAs for a new contract, as Branden Albert of the Jaguars is also looking for an improved salary.
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.
