Texans make eye-opening change to schedule, and what it means for Deshaun
Texans head coach David Culley announced on Wednesday that the team has canceled their mandatory minicamp that was scheduled for June 15-17. Culley stated that this move was always a possibility if the team received enough participation during OTAs.

Many believed this was likely to happen as it would allow the Texans to avoid being put in a position where they would fine Deshaun Watson for not showing up. With minicamp canceled, Watson won't be fined over $93,000 and the Texans won't have to worry about whether Watson will or won't show up.
The Texans aren't the only team cancelling minicamp, however. The Colts, Eagles, and 49ers have also elected to call an early end to their offseason program.
