San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown missed out on $2 million by not participating in the team’s voluntary offseason program. He was unaware of that escalator in his contract and chose to fire his agent Brian Overstreet after missing out on the money. He didn’t know he had missed out on the money and found out via Twitter.
“No, I haven’t moved on,” Brown said, ESPN. “Nothing has happened. They’ve been working, going back and forth and just seeing what we can do. … I’m not going to be a distraction to the team at all. That’s not my personality first of all, and secondly, the most important thing is us going out there and being prepared and getting ready to play football. I’ll let upstairs and my agent handle the rest of that stuff. Take it day by day.”
His new agent, Joel Segal, is in talks with the 49ers about compensation for a portion of that sum. Brown is set to earn $2.925 million in salary in 2013 and isn’t letting this affect his preparation.
