Niners CB Tarell Brown decided to do his offseason workouts at home instead of at the team facility. I mean, it wouldn't cost him $2M to do that, right? Oh, it totally would.

Holy crap, hope the Niners find some way to split the difference (but knowing the NFL, they won't/ the league will tell them not to).

Someone thinks he might be able to get it from his now-ex-agent, or at least from his insurance company.

I just have to ask who the hell writes a contract that triples a guy's base salary if he comes to workouts.

If I were the Sixers GM, that's how I would have structured Iverson's contract.

From the team perspective, it makes a lot of sense, as it creates a massive disincentive to skipping OTAs as part of a hold-out.
