49ers release CB Tramaine Brock following arrest

Apr 7, 2017 at 2:52 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have released cornerback Tramaine Brock following news of his arrest. The team announced the move in a one-sentence press release to the media.

According to police records, Brock was arrested in Santa Clara on a domestic violence charge early on Friday. He was booked into the Santa Clara County jail and later released after posting bail. "According to the Santa Clara Police Department, police found 'visible injuries' on Brock's girlfriend after responding to a domestic violence call Thursday at 9:35 p.m," reported Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. The injuries to the woman were described as "minor" and reportedly did not need medical attention.

Brock declined to discuss the arrest with the media while departing Santa Clara County jail. "I ain't got nothing to say to you," he told a reporter from ABC Bay Area News.


Brock started all 16 games at cornerback for the team in 2016. He spent his entire career with the 49ers after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Belhaven in 2010. Over seven seasons with San Francisco, Brock had 181 tackles, 11 interceptions, a touchdown, and two forced fumbles. In 2016, Brock was the 49ers' top graded defensive back and the third-highest graded defensive player by Pro Football Focus.

While the 49ers have had numerous players arrested in recent years, this was the first since John Lynch took the job as the team's new general manager. Most recently was the arrest of ex-49ers fullback Bruce Miller in September on charges of aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats, and battery.

Miller had been trying to make the roster as a tight end in ex-49ers head coach Chip Kelly's offense but was released following his arrest.

It is important to note that the 49ers hosted Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore this week in Santa Clara. The former Buckeye is expected to be the top cornerback selected in the upcoming draft. The 49ers currently own the second overall selection.

Raheem Mostert a positive example for other 49ers players, says Richard Hightower

San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Richard Hightower may have lost one of his unit's aces with the emergence of running back Raheem Mostert on offense, but he's gained an example for the team's younger players. Mostert joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He spent time with six teams before landing with the 49ers the next year. Even then, the running back mostly contributed on special teams. That is, after all, where so many NFL players have to prove themselves upon entering the league. Mostert burst onto the scene last season, and the NFL took notice when he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. "I would feel bad if I didn't say how proud I am of

Rankings don't typically mean much during the offseason. They are usually just a fun way to pass the time and create some healthy debate among sports fanbases. ESPN's latest one probably isn't much different. However, it isn't based merely on opinion and projections. It is based on the massive amount of data produced by the analytics giant, Pro Football Focus. The two join forces to rank the NFL's best rosters. Where did the San Francisco 49ers fall within the ranking? In case you glanced past the title of this article, the Bay Area squad came in at No. 3, with just the Baltimore Ravens (No. 1) and New Orleans Saints

Mike Florio 'blown away' by this comment from 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers have a not-so-simple goal for the 2020 season: Get back to the Super Bowl and emerge as champions. I label it as "not-so-simple" because doing so will be a very difficult task, and head coach Kyle Shanahan knows that. But it's Super Bowl or bust for the 49ers, as was the case in the team's heyday. Shanahan made a rather innocent comment this week during the conversation with Greg Papa after being asked to describe the state of the franchise. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan responded. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right
