The point wasn't about who's fault it was, the point was that the Niners were in perfect position to remedy it if they so desired. They didn't and they chose to take advantage of it instead. And after all that they lowballed him on a new deal. I guess he was just tired of being taken advantage of. He took a paycut to go play for the Raiders....
Like I said, stuff like that would have never happened under Eddie D's watch...with Eddie, the players always came first and he always tried to do right by them. The 49ers did well under that regime for a long time.
These new Niners under the Yorks....they're not the same.
I can't refute things that are all opinions.
No I don't think they failed to notice, more importantly I don't think their agents failed to notice.
Also, we didn't need to "remedy" the situation, as we didn't mess it up in the first place!
If your contract is paying you 3mil over a year, and more than half of it comes from attending workouts during the offseason.... You better know that or your agent better know that.
We are not a babysitting service, we are an NFL franchise. Brown's agent is the one to blame here, we shouldn't sacrifice 3mil of our cap space because of two boneheads who fail to read.
That 300k we gave him should stand out to more potential FA players than what happened.
1. He did not take a pay cut to go to the raiders
2. The niners are not responsible for him failing to attend
3. We didn't lowball him
I know you have been posting on here longer than I have, and you may be considered a "vet"
But from a fellow fan, like i said before you need to revisit that situation, sounds like you live in Seattle
