All Tarell Brown had to do was show up and work out with his team. Lift some weights, run some sprints, go through some drills, and then the San Francisco 49ers would’ve owed their starting cornerback $2 million extra in base salary thanks to an escalator in his contract.
The only problem is that Brown’s agent, Brian Overstreet, massively failed him (emphasis on massively).
How? Well, Overstreet apparently never relayed to his client that, in order 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.
