49ers CB Tarell Brown Loses $2 million For Not Showing up to Practice

The only task 49ers Tarell Brown had to complete was working out with his team: lift some weights, run some sprints, go through some drills. With the workout program complete, the San Francisco 49ers would have had to pay the starting cornerback $2 million extra in base salary, thanks to a clause in his contract.

But he didn’t do that, and the blame falls on his agent Brian Overstreet.

Overstreet never informed his client that to receive the $2 million, he was contractually obligated to work out with the Niners during their offseason program. So because Brown didn’t honor his contract, he forfeits the money and instead will make  $925,000.

Brown, understandably upset, swiftly fired the agent.
