Texans left tackle Duane Brown has finally returned to the team. ,womens Alan Branch Jersey,After holding out for the first seven weeks of the NFL season

The offensive lineman was in Houston on Monday after skipping the Texans' entire offseason program,womens Patrick Chung Jersey, including training camp. Although Brown wouldn't explain why exactly he decided to hold out,womens Marcus Cannon Jersey, he did tell reporters that he's ready to get back on the field.

"I'm just ready to get back on the field with my brothers,womens Ryan Allen Jersey," Brown said,womens Cameron Jordan Jersey, via ESPN.com.

but the Texans could also decide to waive that if they just want to move forward and put the holdout behind them. ,womens Larry Warford Jersey,Brown's holdout might go down as one of the costliest in NFL history. The offensive lineman, who was slated to make $9.4 million in base salary this season,womens A.J. Klein Jersey,000 per week during the seven weeks that he held out for a total of about $3.87 million in missed salary. Browns could also end up facing nearly $1.5 million in fines for skipping training camp, missed out on roughly $553

The left tackle was believed to be holding out because he wanted to renegotiate his contract to include some more guaranteed money. Brown has two more seasons (2017 and 2018) left on a six-year, $53.4 million deal that he signed in 2013. Although the contract was slated to pay him a total of $19.15 million over the next two seasons, none of the money was guaranteed.

It's no surprise that Brown decided to report now. To earn an accrued season on his contract, Brown has to be active in at least six games for the Texans. If he didn't hit that number, then the 2017 season wouldn't count toward his contract and he'd be locked to the Texans through the 2019 season.

As things stand, Brown is hoping to make his debut on Sunday against the Seahawks. However, he said that decision is "up to the coaching staff" and not up to him.

"It's my 10th year doing this,Authentic Alan Branch Jersey, so I'm very familiar with what I need to do in order to be out there and be productive and be efficient,Authentic Patrick Chung Jersey," Brown said. "I'm in shape. So it's just getting caught up to speed on the plays and terminology and I'll be good."

but that probably won't happen. ,Authentic Marcus Cannon Jersey,If the Texans want Brown to play on Sunday,Authentic Ryan Allen Jersey, they'll have to add him to the active roster. Right now,Authentic Cameron Jordan Jersey, which means they could theoretically keep him sidelined until after Week 9,Authentic Larry Warford Jersey, the team has a two-week roster exemption

who are only a half game out of first place in the AFC South. The Texans have been the highest-scoring team in the NFL over the past four weeks and there's a good chance their offense is only going to look better with Brown protecting Deshaun Watson's blind side. ,Authentic A.J. Klein Jersey,The return of Brown comes at a perfect time for the Texans
