Tarell Brown skips workout program-voids $2M salary escalator, holdout coming?

Wow, Browns agent f**ked him. I feel bad for the dude and hopefully he can get something worked out.

I will say I am very impressed with how mature he is being about it though, not sure I would be so calm after losing 2M dollars.
Brown basically lost 2/3 of his salary this year.

Brown said he didn't know about that clause in the deal and only learned of it via Twitter after practice on Thursday. Brown then fired agent Brian Overstreet for the mistake.

"
Brown If I would have known the clauses in my contract -- that's what agents get paid to do, to orchestrate the contract and to let you know what you can and can't do as far as workouts and OTAs and things of that sort.
"

Brown had been due to earn $2.925 million in salary for the 2013 season. The 28-year-old Brown, who is entering his contract year and currently without an agent, worked out on his own this offseason -- something he said he has routinely done.

Had he known about the $2 million, he would have done things differently.

"No one wants to leave money on the table," Brown said. "If I would have known the clauses in my contract -- that's what agents get paid to do, to orchestrate the contract and to let you know what you can and can't do as far as workouts and OTAs and things of that sort. That's what he got paid to do. He didn't do that, so in my opinion you have to be let go. We all are held accountable for our actions. This is part of the business."


what an idiot
give zero f*cks about your contract ---- > blame/ fire agent

LOLOLOLOL

that sucks. i would feel like s**t right now.
Good opportunity for both parties to make right.
Unbelievable. Would be interested in AB' s feelings and in particular, what he thinks of Idaho's suggestion. Unfixed there is going to be bad blood, I would think, between Brown and anything having to do with 49ers.

1) Maybe recover the 10% ( about 800K ) that Brown's agent got for initial contract

2) and 49ers put up a welcome back clause , one day after start date, of $1.2mil, so Brown ends up whole. That way 9ers help out, Brown gets his money, agent gets sued for $800K, and there is no animosity by Brown towards anyone who is 49er related. It would show good will on 9ers part, everyone goes home happy, and

3) 9ers attys help out putting Brown's agent out of business after helping collect the $800K initial fee. Incidentally, a good agent looks after his client always until the next contract.

4) 9ers also get an $800k decrease in the money that they would have had to come up with. Win, win, win....agent loses.

dunno, just a trial balloon. I could see it work...maybe.

voluntary workouts are for the noobs.

Man I say tge Niners just say F it and pay the man. Would be the classy thing to do and would keep a major component of the D happy. It's not like he missed it because he was off partying or something. Make it happen Jed
I can't really blame Brown on this at all.

You pay your agent a huge amount (what is it, 10%?) to take care of this stuff. You shouldn't have to worry about it for that price.

If anyone is screwed, it's not just Brown, but it's his agent per the report. Stay away!

49ers cornerback Tarell Brown lost an opportunity to make an additional $2 million because he failed to complete the 2013 offseason workout clause in his contract, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

Brown, who spent a majority of his offseason in Texas working on increasing his speed, will watch his salary fall from $2.925 million to $925,000. Maybe Texas will be willing to pick up the tab, but we doubt it. Since then, Brown decided to part ways with his agent.

"I no longer have an agent as of now," Brown said after practice via the Sacramento Bee. "… No one wants to leave money on the table. If I would have known the clauses in my contract and that's what agents get paid to do — to orchestrate the contract and let you know what you can and can't do as far as workouts and OTAs and things of that sort.

Hopefully this will allow an extension for less than he would get on the market.... Just lost 2 mil, give him some decent numbers to consider and he may be more willing to sign long extension.

Agreed, his job is to play football, not review his contract. His agent should pay his ass a mil for that.
