The Houston Texans may need to unload left tackle Duane Brown.
We mentioned earlier in the week that there’s a report out claiming that Houston Texans’ left tackle Duane Brown will not be showing up anytime soon as he continues to make a statement by holding out for more money.
This makes me wonder whether or not it would make sense for the Texans to trade Brown.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported a couple of weeks ago that the Texans won’t be trading Brown.
Well that was two weeks ago. I know Brown is the Texans’ best offensive lineman. But if another team is desperate to get stronger at the left tackle position in order to help themselves make a playoff or even a Super Bowl run, why wouldn’t they give up a third or fourth round pick for him?
That might seem like a lot for a 32 year-old player, but you can’t find an all-pro caliber left tackle sitting on the street somewhere.

The Texans’ offensive line hasn’t been great this season without Brown, but they looked pretty good last week against the New England Patriots. And seem to be getting better every game.
Houston would have to weigh whether or not it’s ultimately worth it for them to get rid of Brown.
If the Texans’ line looks solid over the course of the next four weeks, the they may want to think about trading Brown. They have until November 1st to try and get a deal done, since that’s when this year’s NFL trade deadline is.
At the end of the day, I don’t think Brown will get traded.
