Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown had better be strong in his convictions about missing camp for the Texans, because it’s costing him quite a bit of cash.
The tackle, who is not happy with his deal and is expected to miss the start of camp, is out $250,000 according to Field Yates of ESPN as missing offseason workouts has triggered a clause in his contract dropping his salary.
