    Tarell Brown Loses $2 Million Workout Bonus for Missing Practice
    Tarell Brown, a cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers, is out $2 million for failing to show up to the team's workout program.

    Cornerback Tarell Brown had triggered a $2 million escalator to his 2013 base salary and was scheduled to earn $2.925 million in the final year of his contract. However, since Brown opted to do his offseason training at his home in Texas, instead of participating in the 49ers' workout program in Santa Clara, Calif., that escalator has voided and his base salary has returned to his original $925,000, a source with knowledge of Brown's contract details confirmed to "Shutdown Corner". Brown was also scheduled to receive a $75,000 workout bonus, but that has vanished, as well.

    Great work ethic - dude found out about this on Twitter and then clipped his agent after this costly mistake.

    Absolutely. The agent is the one that is to tell him where to be and at what time.

    i can't argue with that... but the stupid fuck took the lazy way out and 'worked out' at home..

    bullshit he was lazy at home with his hommies and paid the price for it..

    when was the last time you heard Tom Brady or Payton decide to work out at home and not show up?

    Not sure if you're goofing on me. All I know is my lawyer would have given me a 1 pager with the most important points highlighted, as well as the complete document annotated and highlighted.

    For some reason I don't care for the 49's. This shouldn't bode well for this player's attitude this season, so good.

    Oh agreed, he's a piece of shit not going but the agent is the one that should have gotten him there. He just lost a shit load of cash as well. Who knows though, he may have said fuck the money I aint going. :dontknow:

    Are you sure the agent doesn't get comped on the entire deal? I think he does. Otherwise incentive based contracts would unfairly penalize the agent. I think the team pays the agent off the top.

    No way. This is a contract year. I bet he tears it up this year.

    Niners probably gave the agent 100G to not say anything.

    I wonder if he can sue his agent for dereliction of duty or something like malpractice.

    Anyone know? :scratch:
