First of all, the age difference is just slightly more than a year. Furthermore, the Skins can be happy to retain at least one SOLID defensive player. put another way, a loser team has to pay a lot of money to retain a solid player, save for a really good one.
Contrary to that, we are a perennial SB contender and Brock is our #1 CB whereas Cully should be at least #3 and other two guys could be obtained at a low price through FA.
We just need another CB who could start immediately. Lucky as the Niners sometimes are, the draft provides an occean-deep cb-class.
Honestly, Brown is a solid CB but not a guy who I would go for with a lot of money. Not a #1 CB but a very good #2.
Thus, Brown does NOT have the upper hand in this bargain, imho.
