HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - Texans inside linebacker Tim Dobbins will attend the mandatory minicamp, according to his agent.  Dobbins, entering his third season with the Texans, has received a substantial amount of media attention for being a no-show for the team’s voluntary OTAs.  Dobbins’ agent David Canter defended his client’s absence via text:

“He’s in the best shape of his life and he’ll be at mandatory events.”

According to Canter, Dobbins has been spending his offseason at his home in Nashville.  Whether Dobbins has skipped OTAs to attend to an emergency, family matters, or just some personal time is unclear.  Canter downplayed the importance of OTAs for veteran players like Dobbins via a Twitter war with Houston Chronicle Texans blogger Stephanie Stradley:

 

 

The Texans re-signed Dobbins to a one-year deal worth close to $1 million  this offseason.  The only other Texan player missing from OTA practice is Pro-Bowl safety Ed Reed who is recovering from arthroscopic hip surgery. The Texans’ mandatory minicamp will be held June 11-13.
