It's in the works but they said it's no big hurry. Probably be done by the end of the season. I think it's almost guaranteed to get done its just a matter of time. Don't see Iupati wanting to go anywhere else. I agree though, depending on how much they will give Brown of his 2 mil he lost or if they plan on extending Brown at this time now would be a good time to extend Iupati. Front load some of that and eat up most of that 7.5 million in cap space we have left. He's signed for 1 mil this year and 1.6 in 2014 since he is still on his rookie contract. We could add on 2015, 16, 17, 18... add like 6 million onto his pay this year and next and make it lower for 2015-2018 so we more cap room for Aldon, Kap, Miller, Culliver, Hunter, Crabtree or whoever we want to extend.
And side note on Brown the guys made like 10 million in 7 years (including this year) and was a starter for 6? of them. He should have made 3-4 times that so I wouldn't blame him for wanting to get paid after this year. Since he will be 29 before he plays next year I'd offer him 2-3 years and like 15-18 million. I think he can get 4-5 years at 20-25 million so wouldn't be surprised if he's gone.
