San Francisco 49ers' Tarell Brown: "I haven't moved on"

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.

 “I would hope so,” Brown said of them reaching a deal before the season opener. “That’s the plan.”

    Terrell Brown was scheduled to earn $2.95 million. He is now scheduled to earn $.95 million because of his agents negligence.
    If Joel Segal thinks he can step in and demand the $2 million and receive his cut then he is mistaken.
    I think the 49ers might want to know what kind of money Brown will be demanding if the 49ers wish to keep him .

    They would have to redo his contract or it would be considered salary cap circumvention. Brown is not going to be willing to sign an extension since this is his contract year, and 49ers will probably give him a new one-year deal and/or some kind of bonus for a total of less than the $2.925 he would have earned.
