After 'great' OTAs attendance, Texans decide to not have minicamp


The Texans have decided to not hold a full-team mandatory minicamp because they're satisfied with what they've accomplished during a month of organized team activities and workouts.

Team officials met with the player leadership and reached an agreement to not conduct the minicamp due to high attendance at the voluntary portion of the offseason.

"Our attendance has been great for us here," Texans coach David Culley said. "We’ve accomplished what we wanted to accomplish.”

The Texans won't be in a position where they would have to make a decision on whether to fine embattled quarterback Deshaun Watson for potentially missing minicamp. Watson has requested a trade and is facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct.
