Report: Duane Brown to skip mandatory minicamp

Looks like Houston Texans’ left tackle Duane Brown is really upset about his contract.

It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Houston Texans’ left tackle Duane Brown was skipping voluntary OTA’s because he’s not happy about him contract.

It looks like Brown still isn’t happy.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Brown is expected to skip out on this week’s mandatory minicamp.

Veteran offensive tackle Duane Brown isn’t expected to attend the Texans’ mandatory minicamp that begins Tuesday, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly.

Brown is really making a statement by deciding to skip out on the Texans’ mandatory minicamp since he could end up being fined up to $80,400.

The main reason for Brown’s unhappiness is that he’s watched a lot of free agent left tackles get paid this offseason that aren’t on the same level as him.

Brown is scheduled to make $9.6 million this season and $9.7 million in 2018.

Matt Kalil of the Carolina Panthers and Riley Reiff of the Minnesota Vikings are getting over $11 million a year and they’re not on the same level as Brown.

If Brown were to continue his hold out when training camp rolls arojnud, he will only be subject to more fines.

I would be surprised if the Texans give in to Brown since he doesn’t have any leverage and can’t afford to hold out for the entire season.
