He's not gonna re-sign because he's gonna ask for that 2 million that the niners jew'd him out of and the cheap ass Yorks dont wonna pay it.
This, the 49ers did absolutely nothing wrong. Participating in the OS program should not be a big deal when you're making 6 to 7 figures, especially when the 7th figure hinges on you participating in the program.
if he showed up in shape (which he did) they should have paid the man his money. His agent made a mistake, it was very low class of the niners to screw him like that. Eddie D would have taken care of him.
The problem with that is the organization wants the team to be on site and work out and practice together. If they give free passes to everyone who "made a mistake" it sets a bad precedence and you'll find more guys doing the same thing.
I'm not doubting Brown was geniunly mistaken, but it sets a bad example if the niers paid brown to those who showed up and worked for their paycheck.
I respectfully disagree, they can look at each situation on it own. Brown has been a model citizen with the niners. Do you think they would have done that with Frank, Pat or any other super star players. I think it sets a bad message in the locker room that the team will screw you over if you make one honest mistake.
