San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown is in talks with the team about trying to get back some of the $2 million escalator clause Brown voided for missing voluntary offseason workouts.

His new agent, Joel Segal, is trying to negotiate with the team.

"No, I haven't moved on," Brown told the Associated Press. "Nothing has happened. They've been working, going back and forth and just seeing what we can do. ... I'm not going to be a distraction to the team at all. That's not my personality first of all, and secondly, the most important thing is us going out there and being prepared and getting ready to play football. I'll let upstairs and my agent handle the rest of that stuff. Take it day by day."

Brown is due a $2.925 million base salary.

He's entering the final year of a three-year, $7.125 million contract.

Brown has his fingers crossed that something can be worked out before the season starts.

"I would hope so," Brown said. "That's the plan."
