NFL Trade Rumors:
According to the CSN Bay Area, 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks‘ 2013 salary will be reduced by $1.6 million after he didn’t meet specific requirements in his contract.
Brooks, 28, would have made $4.3 million had he met the requirement. The de-escalator would have been voided if the 49ers won 12 games during the regular season with Brooks playing at least 93.2 percent of the team’s defensive snaps.
He was rated as the No. 5 best 3-4 outside linebacker by Pro Football Focus and tallied 74 sacks, 6.5 sacks and an interception return for a touchdown this season.
Obviously a tough break for a guy who’s coming off of a productive season.

The San Francisco 49ers are arguably in the early stages of the longest and most difficult offseason in team history. After back-to-back seasons with deep playoff runs that ended in disappointment and the first Super Bowl loss in franchise history, the Niners confidence is undoubtedly shaken. How could everything that looked so right, end up so wrong in two consecutive seasons...
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on Wednesday’s NFL Live that the current trade market for 49ers QB Alex Smith is “limited,” via Rotoworld.
Mortensen adds that there’s ”not a large buzz” surrounding him and believes that Smith ending up with the Browns would be a “long shot.”
There’s been plenty of speculation that Smith could be one of the hottest players...
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that 49ers QB Alex Smith hasn't generated much interest on the trade market.Fantasy Spin:Three months ago, Smith (13 TD, 5 INT in 10 games) was the quarterback for a division-leader. Today, he's trapped on that same team with no way out. It seems like a waste to keep Smith as a backup but for some reason, nobody is jumping at the chance...
Comedian Kathy Griffin had her red-headed cougar paws all over San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy gala. I wonder what his girlfriend has to say about that.
