HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans added offensive tackle Duane Brown to the active roster Saturday.
A starter for Houston, Brown held out until this week, missing six games. He has two years remaining on his contract, had sought a new deal, which he did not receive. The three-time Pro Bowler, who has been the team’s starter since he was drafted in the first round in 2008.
Three-year veteran tackle Kendall Lamm was waived.
Brown’s salary for this season is $9.4 million, a big chunk of which he lost in his holdout. His 2018 salary is $9.75 million.
The 32-year-old has been Houston’s most steady presence on the line since joining the team, starting 132 games — all at left tackle — in his career. His return should be a boost to an offense that has flourished with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.
