Duane Brown Remains Absent but His Teammates Know This is a Business

Players want Duane Brown back with the team but understand it is a business first in the NFL.

The Houston Texans finished their workouts for the spring without long time offensive tackle Duane Brown. Brown is currently in California, working to stay in shape for the upcoming season, but he will be fined over $80k for not showing to mandatory mini-camp. While the Texans work at the Methodist Training Center, they understand that this is a business and that it is out of their hands.

“I don't have much to say on that,” Bill O’Brien stated regarding Brown’s holdout. “I’m just coaching the players that are here. Duane knows how we feel about him, how I feel about him. I’d love to have him here but, again, at the end of the day, the guys who are here, that’s who we’re coaching.” 

One thing that the Texans want with their players, either in negotiations or holdouts, is for the discussions stay behind closed doors and away from the public. Which leaves the real reason behind the Brown holdout in question, although many feel the contracts given out during the free agency period and the fact that there is zero guaranteed money on the final two years of his contract have led Brown to this point.

Brown is entering the final two years of 6-year deal he signed prior to the 2013 season worth $53.4 million with $22 million guaranteed. The final two years of his deal will pay him around $9.7 million each season but there is no guaranteed money left in the deal. There has been little said but when players are asked, they understand the NFL is a business and both Brown and the Texans have to look out for themselves first. 

“I saw him at my softball game," J.J. Watt said. “Yeah, I talked to him leading up to the softball game, saw him a little bit after that but no, I think business is business. Especially in the locker room, everybody understands business is business so they’ll handle that I’m sure.”

Longtime NFL and Texans veteran Johnathan Joseph has seen it all and he understands both sides of the equation. 

“Everybody’s situation is different, we will be glad to have him back when he gets back. I am sure he is taking care of his business,” Joseph explained. “I just kinda leave that to everyone else that is not my job to talk about his situation but I am sure when he gets back he will be ready to go."

Joseph continued, “It is football, it is business. It is a business driven type of thing in the NFL. Guys have to do what is in their best interest and I think the team does too. So I think at the end of the day everything will work itself out.” 

With mini-camp over and potential fines being handed out, the Brown holdout will now move to training camp where he expect fines of $40k per absence.
