After staying away from OTAs and minicamp in reported hopes of negotiating a new contract, Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown is not traveling to his team’s training camp and is not expected to attend, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Brown has two years remaining on his current deal, though he has no guaranteed money remaining. He is due to earn a salary of $9.4 million in 2017 and $9.75 million in 2018.
The 31-year-old has played all nine of his NFL season with the Texans, making the Pro Bowl in in 2012, 2013, and 2014. Without Brown in the lineup, the Texans face a problem on the offensive line, since starting right tackle Derek Newton is on the PUP list with a shoulder injury.
