Also, if I'm the 49ers, I would pay the man. It's not like he was being a rebel for skipping. He was probably working out on his own. Shouldn't the 49ers have at least called him and said 'hey, I don'tknow if you realize this, vbut your contract says you need to be here.' It's a small price for the 49ers play to avoid building a reputation that they're trying to take advantage of their players.
Yeah, he should know his contract. I am guessing many players would have missed this
If I had a clause in my contract that was going to pay me an extra $100,000 bonus if I showed up for work on time every day for a year, you could guarantee that I would be aware of that clause and follow it to the letter. This stupid mother ****er just assumes everything is being taken care of by somebody else.
The 49ers have no obligation to let him know about this contract clause and they shouldn't call him and alert him of the clause. He should take responsibility for his own requirements. His agent screwed up by not reminding him of the workout clause, but JFC it's part of your job to know what your contract says.
