49ers Release Tramaine Brock

Less than a day after Tramaine Brock‘s arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence, the 49ers have released the cornerback, according to a team announcement. Brock could face up to a four-year prison sentence if found guilty.

San Francisco’s decision to cut ties with Brock seems to be indicative of a zero tolerance policy toward domestic violence from rookie general manager John Lynch. Regardless, it ends the stint of a long-tenured Niner in Brock, who had been with the team since it signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2010.

The 49ers increased their reliance on Brock over the past two years, as he started in all 31 of his appearances from 2015-16, including his first 16-start showing last season. Prior to 2015, he only started in nine of 49 games with the club. Across 80 appearances, Brock intercepted 11 passes and totaled 45 passes defensed.

Releasing Brock adds $3.55MM in cap room for the Niners this year and leaves them with $750K in dead money.

    He was getting burnt regularly and dropping picks. Glad he’s gone. We have a lot of young corners that will get their chance to shine without Brock. Also, do the Niners now consider Lattimore even more or Hooker or Adams if they decide to keep Ward at CB now that Brock is gone?

    NFL should install a rule if players are convicted of a felon the money can be wiped from the cap. It still gets paid, but that’s a really unforeseen circumstance and they should allow teams to wipe the money.

      They already have the restricted list which essentially does the same thing except they don’t have to pay them.

    What is wrong with these idiots. They have a great salary and they lose it all because they are too dumb to control themselves and be decent human beings
