Brown idk if it's a smart re-sign. I worry about the cost. Is it gonna be a long term deal, if true, or just a 1yr extension? And he probably gets whatever is left of our cap room right now. So idk.

With the development of Brock and Baalke's confidence in Wright, I don't see how resigning Brown is a top priority.

And if I was Brown, I'd want to recoup that money in Free Agency to the team that will pay me the highest dollar. And in return, the 49ers will be in position to gain a 3rd round comp pick in 2015.

I think Brown is going to ask for more money, he's turning 29 and knows that his age is going to slow him down soon, so he's going for a big contract with more guaranteed money, and the Niners won't give him that.

I wouldn't blame him for wanting to get paid. He has one contract left and the guy was on 5th round rookie pay then we re-signed him a few years in for like 1.5 a year. He has been underpaid since 08. Agree, someone else can give him more so it will depend on if he wants to win or get paid. I think what's going on is we are throwing out our offer (probably low) and maybe coming up a bit but Brown's agent is looking for a lot more even more so now to recoup that 2 mil he lost. I think that hurt his chances of re-signing here even more. Again, I'm not so sure I want to re-sign him because he will be 29 and want a 4-5 year deal. At his age I'd say 1-2 is more like it but no way he goes for that.

Yeah, I agree. We don't need to sign Brown, we've got Wright and Brock who are both capable starters.
I want Brown . I want depth

We have culliver Brock ad wright but need one more in case of injury, depth so brown would be cheaper than Rogers and is better. Hopefully he signs a one to two year extension for z4-5 a year

No!! Seriously Mayo NO!! Brown is better than both of those guys. When was the last time Wright played in a meaningful game? How can you even say he's a capable starter. He was a capable starter. Whether or not he can still play remains to be seen. Brown is the guy and I hope we keep him in a 49ers uniform.
I subscribe to the you can't ever have enough good CBs rule of thumb. This is a big if, but IF we can get Brown, Brock & Wright back to join Culliver & the ST rookie guy (always forget his name) along w/a rookie I'd love that. But only if we can figure out a way to get Kaep, Aldon, Iupati and Crabs resigned. Would like to see Gore restructured with an ext, and Boldin brought back oh and Boone as well. As I type this out I don't see how we fit Brown in but if we can do it, otherwise no.

Browns about to hit 29, he's on his last legs. Why pay him all the money when we've got 2 similar players already?

Agreed. Brown deserves to look for top dollar as this will most likely be his last big contract. 49ers should not be the highest bidder when all is said and done. Of course I would like him back, but it's a numbers game and Brown loses to Boldin and Brock in the short term. Committing anything more than $3 annually to Brown on a multi year deal can hamper the ability to re-sign the 2014 UFAs (Crabs, Iupati, Aldon). No way Brown takes $3.

Can we trade him for Cooper? LOL
After being underpaid for years and losing out on $2M, Brown is going to want the big dollar, long term contract that we're not going to give him. I like Tarrell and I want him to stay but you can't keep everybody and right now, he's pretty low on the priority list when you consider Kap, Aldon, Crabs, Iupati, and even resigning Boldin. I'd rather resign young, up and coming talent like Brock and Culliver and look to the draft for quality depth than give Brown a big contract and I'm sure that is the approach the FO will take.

After reading this, it even furthers my conclusion that they're going to let Brown walk. Just no room to give him what other teams will offer him. Can't blame him for wanting to get paid.
That and the fact that before this scandal word was we believed we could upgrade Brown's position
I think they let Brown walk too. I'm sure they are trying to work out an extension but they won't overpay for a guy at his age who has been pretty solid but nothing spectacular. Tramaine Brock will be the most likely to get paid by the 49ers since he turns 26 in August going into next year. I think the 49ers will be happy with Brock and Culliver. Not sure what they'll do about Rogers and the slot corner job though... maybe another 1 year for Wright?

And we will draft corners as well
