Despite a previous report that the San Francisco 49ers and starting cornerback Tarell Brown were in negotiations to help him recoup the $2 million he lost this offseason, apparently they are not according to CSN Bay Area.

Brown missed out on the $2 mil after missing the 49ers’ nine-week voluntary offseason workout program – a fact unknown to the corner at the time because his agent failed to tell him.

Needless to say, Brown fired that agent and is suing him to try to recoup “up to $1 million via malpractice insurance”.

Well, now CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco, per several team sources, is saying the team and Brown are not close to coming to terms on any kind of deal, and he may become a free agent when he is scheduled this offseason.

Brown’s salary without the kicker?  $925,000 with a $500k roster bonus.  Not a bad chunk of change, but it just might be when you consider – as Maiocco pointed out – that he is the 15th highest paid defensive player on the team.

“When you go through a tough time, all you can do is rely on your family and rely on what you know, and that’s getting back to business and playing ball,” Brown said, according to a report from CSN Bay Area when he originally lost the cash. “And that’s my focus. It’s an unfortunate situation. It’s something I didn’t know about. And at the end of the day, it’s something I have to deal with and be a man about — be professional.”

It’s a commendable attitude to take – and like Brown said, a very professional one – but you’d have to think that unless San Francisco can come up with some way to help him out, it would be only natural for Brown to hold some kind of ill will and walk this coming offseason.
