The Parramatta Eels have pulled their offer to star lock Nathan Brown from the table after the back-rower chose not to accept it before a deadline on the deal expired.
The Eels and the 28-year-old firebrand have been involved in drawn out negotiations, but have yet to agree to terms.
The Eels tabled a two-year, $1.2 million deal several months that Brown was unwilling to sign.
The club reportedly gave Brown a deadline in order to bring the matter to a head, but they have been unable to land Brown’s signature.
Brown missed the deadline date, with the club making the decision to withdraw the offer.
