Due to some lack of communication between the San Francisco 49ers, Tarell Brown and his former agent Brian Overstreet, Brown forfeited $2 million in salary this season by not attending the 49ers’ offseason workouts.

Now Brown and his new agent, Joel Segal, are trying to get some of that money back.

According to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press, Brown hasn’t put the issue behind him and is still focused on recouping the lost salary.

No, I haven’t moved on,” Brown said. “Nothing has happened. They’ve been working, going back and forth and just seeing what we can do.”

Brown said he hopes the issue will be resolved before the regular season opens with a matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 8. Head coach Jim Harbaugh also said he hoped something could be worked out.

Brown said he didn’t want the issue to be a distraction to the team and is going about his business on the field while letting Segal worry about the business with the front office.
