CAUGHT OFF-GUARD: ABCNEWS.com's Paul Bacigalupo reported Brown "learned of his salary cut via Twitter" on Thursday, when he "read an NFL writer's tweet." EAG Sports Management CEO Denise White, acting as Brown’s spokesperson, said, "It wasn’t anything (Brown) was aware of. He had no idea. He was told by his agent he would be OK." Brown said that he was "unaware of the clause in his contract that indicates he needed to attend the offseason workouts." He added that agents "get paid to inform players about workouts, but his agent didn't do that" (ABCNEWS.com, 7/26). Brown: "No one wants to leave money on the table. If I would have known the clauses in my contract -- that's what agents get paid to do, to orchestrate the contract and to let you know what you can and can't do as far as workouts and OTAs and things of that sort. That's what he got paid to do. He didn't do that, so in my opinion, you have to be let go" (AP, 7/26).
