dayum, saw this today, made me think we need to get more of the "requirements" into contracts...
49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks' 2013 salary has de-escalated from $4.3 million to $2.7 million
because he "did not meet certain requirements."
Those "certain requirements" included playing 93.2 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps, and San Francisco winning 12 games. It's rough stuff for a player who had a big season, notching 47 tackles, 6.5 sacks and an interception. Going on 29, Brooks graded out as the No. 5 3-4 outside linebacker in Pro Football Focus' ratings
after being No. 22 a season ago. LINK
$2.7million for the #5 rated LB?!? And our cap hit is $1.93mil for Herring and $1.45mil for Chamberlain?!?
