I havent seen any sources confirm this but dam if its true brooks just jumped up my list on favorite current 49ers. True team player, cares about the rings and not the green

These are the types of guys I love having on the Niners

Yea these are the players who will be niners for life. Screw players like Tbrown and Goldson who just want the green and choose big pay days on sucky teams who will never sniff a superbowl

Who cares. He's still willing to restructure to help.

Actually they can restructure and take a pay cut. That's when a player cuts his base salary down, like Baldwin, or Dahl, and gets Not Likely To Be Earned Incentives, which aren't reachable.

If Brooks did this, it means he is a true team player, and he likely got the 49ers to get rid of the de-escalators, those are killing him, lost $1.6M and $900K in past 2 seasons.

The other restructure is lowering base salary, get an up front signing bonus, which prorates over the length of the deal, 5 years max, like Steelers, Cowboys, Saints have been doing. That's immediate savings. The 49ers aren't known for those deals. They don't like tying up future money when not needed. Not sure why they would do this for Brooks, it has to be a pay cut. There is no way they will pay DeSean Jackson 10M a year. I pray it's for a guy like Kap or Crabs. Cully maybe but he could lower base salary back to $645K and use difference and some for signing bonus, similar to what Bruce Miller probably did.

some restructures dont mean paycuts but in this case it sounds like this restructure caused him to lose money.

He cracks my top 5 favorite players on the team. Love Brooks's game
If true. I hope they extend Aldon with the money saved.

I haven't been here long, but I agree with this wholeheartedly. I've learned a ton from his posts already!

Nope, there doesn't seem to be. Dude knows his stuff.
I think the question is: How bad is Ahmad Brooks?

Hopefully any pay decrease was coupled with another extension. He gets overshadowed by Bow and Willis but he is a bad ass too. This is the best line backing corps we have ever had hands down. 10 years from now we're still gonna be talking about them.

this, I was a little worried that with all the extensions Brooks could be a cap casualty at some point if Lemonier proves worthy to be a starter. Assuming this is true I think it just shows how far Brooks has come as both a person and a player. He obviously sees that this franchise took a chance on him & put in the time/work to develop him and he still appreciates it. He didn't let the fact that he has become a star go to his head, what a great story, from a bonehead in college, a Bengal bust to a star here in SF.
