No one knows when Duane Brown will play for the Houston Texans again.
Despite a rough start for the Houston Texans’ offensive line this season, they bounced back and put in a good performance against the New England Patriots this past Sunday.
It’s still fair to wonder when Texans’ left tackle Duane Brown will play this season after telling reporters earlier in the month that he will play this year.
A report came out last week that Brown is not expected to report before week seven.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported on Tuesday that there isn’t an end in sight when it comes to Brown’s hold out.
"There’s “no end in sight,” a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT."
Brown can keep holding out for more money, but he’s forfeiting over $550,000 a week for every game he misses. He’s already lost $3 million total, if you count all of the fines he’s racked up as well.
As of right now, it’s safe to say that Brown’s hold out as backfired with how good the Texans’ offensive line looked against the Patriots.
It also helps that rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is very elusive. His mobility helps buy himself time in the pocket. This of course helps the offensive line not give up so many sacks.
There are a number of NFL teams that could use a left tackle like Brown, but as of right now they’re not expected to trade him. I’m also not sure what they would be able to get in return for him given the fact that he’s 32 years-old.
