Tarell Brown skips voluntary workout, gives 49ers two million in cap space
According to Brian McIntyre of Yahoo Sports, the 49ers have gotten $2 million in cap relief as CB Tarell Brown skips voluntary offseason 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.
