SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — San Francisco 49ers head coach Harbaugh said he sympathized with Tarell Brown after learning the cornerback lost out on $2 million, and that he believes “there’s a solution there.”
Harbaugh said team officials – not just Brown’s agent – were not aware of the contract clause that obligated Brown to attend voluntary off-season workouts to receive all of his money.
“Unfortunately, nobody caught it,” Harbaugh said. “That’s a real torpedo that nobody really wanted to see happen. Now let’s get the solution and solve the problem.”
The coach added that he would like to be involved in discussions to help remedy the situation, but did not get into specifics.
