The league informed Brock on Friday that there is “insufficient evidence to support a finding” that he violated the personal conduct policy. Without the threat of a potential suspension hanging over his head, Brock should have an easier time landing a deal this offseason. He also won’t have to worry about being held out of postseason action this year.
It was a strange 2017 for Brock. In April, the Niners cut him on the heels of a domestic violence arrest. After that charge was dropped in August, the Seahawks jumped at the chance to bolster the Legion of Boom. Then, before the start of the season, Seattle shipped Brock to Minnesota for a conditional 2018 seventh-round pick.
Brock, 29, suited up for eleven games this season, but a foot injury could prevent him from taking the field in the divisional round. In 2016, he finished second among 49ers defenders in snaps (1,102) and graded 21st in performance among Pro Football Focus’ 110 qualified cornerbacks.
