Brooks that pay cut

Brooks that pay cut 


Some good news.  We were only 1 mill under until now...

Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks had an impressive season. But it was not good enough prevent him from a "de-escalator" clause in his contract that reduces his salary in 2013.

According to an NFL source, Brooks scheduled 2013 base salary of $4.3 million was lowered to $2.7 million because he did not meet certain requirements. His salary cap figure falls from $6.65 million to $5.05 million. Even with the money saved from Brooks' deal, the 49ers are currently bumped up against the projected 2013 cap of approximately $121 million.

Wow, does anyone know what the clause was?  I'm curious, because the guy was a 2nd team all-pro last year...  So we're 2.5 below now, and should we trade Alex we'd be around 10 below?
