Texans, 49ers are latest NFL teams to cancel mandatory minicamps

Multiple NFL teams have now canceled minicamps this offseason, with the 49ers and Texans joining the Eagles and Colts as teams officially giving those workouts a miss.Each team made its decision public this week, citing slightly different reasons (though they came down to player health).In Houston, Texans head coach David Culley pointed at the team’s participation in voluntary workouts as a reason to remove mandatory minicamp from the schedule.”We needed to make sure for at least four weeks during the offseason we had as many players here as possible,” Culley told USA Today.The 49ers had more of a strict timetable in mind, seeking at least 40 days rest for their players.
