You're right on the 49ers. But it's just bad practice on their part.
Its possible that brown was told and just didn't show up. If he wasn't told, that's just bad business practice for both the team and his agent not to raise the flag.
Oh FFS, it's not the teams or the agents job to remind this jackass that he has a workout clause in his contract. I'm 100% positive this was covered with the player when the contract was signed. An agent is not a babysitter. They are paid to negotiate the contract, disclose the parameters of that contract to the player, and take care of any other legal issues such as endorsements that the player may have. It's the players responsibility to listen to what the agent tells them is in the contract and act on that information accordingly.
Anyone who has ever worked with a head hunter to find an acquire a job knows this.
