Report: San Francisco 49ers Award CB Tarell Brown $300K Bonus


The San Francisco 49ers gave cornerback Tarell Brown a $300,000 bonus last month, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.

Brown missed out on a $2 million workout bonus last offseason, thanks to a mistake by Brown’s now-former agent.

Brown has said he was unaware of a clause in his contract that called for him to receive $2 million for participating in offseason workouts at the team’s facility. Because of that, Brown worked out on his own, forfeiting the bonus.

The $300,000 bonus negotiated by his new agent, Joel Segal, was issued Dec. 27.

Brown is still scheduled to become a free agent this offseason. He’s been with the 49ers for seven seasons, since he was drafted in the fifth round out of Texas in the 2007 NFL Draft.

In 13 games this season, 10 of which he started, Brown had 12 passes defended, 35 tackles and two fumble recoveries.

He has 11 career interceptions in 100 games with San Francisco and scored a touchdown on an interception return in 2010 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Brown earned just more than $1.9 million for this season.
