CB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
The Jaguars have announced they have signed CB Tramaine Brock.
With Rashaan Melvin choosing to opt out of the 2020 season, the Jaguars were looking for a veteran presence in the secondary and Brock fit the bill. The 10-year vet played for both the Titans and the Cardinals in 2019 and started 11 total games, contributing 50 tackles and five pass deflections. With Tre Herndon and first round pick C.J. Henderson on the roster, Brock will enter camp competing for snaps and will look to add some depth at the position.
Tramaine Brock had his domestic violence case dropped due to lack of evidence. He is now officially a free agent. However he is still subject to an NFL investigation which could lead to a suspension.
Brock was slated to be a starting corner for the 49ers before his arrest in April, leading to him being released. He had started 31 of 32 games prior to his release, and was a bright spot in a bottom tier secondary. Rumor is the 49ers interested in resigning him which would add some much needed depth to the secondary, but they will have to get in line as three other teams are reportedly interested. If signed he should be immediately in the starting corner conversation, but may take some time to get back into football shape. The 49ers need lock down corners for their defense to operate like it should and Brock is arguably better than anyone on the roster currently. Corner isn't usually a position targeted in IDP unless you are forced to start one but he would improve a D/ST unit that at least on paper figures to be much improved from last year.
The former 49er is facing up to five years in jail as he has been charged Tuesday with felony domestic violence and misdemeanor child endangerment.
Don't count on him to be on any football teams any time soon.
The San Francisco 49ers have released defensive back Tramaine Brock on Friday.
Brock was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge in Santa Clara, CA Thursday. On Friday, he was released by the 49ers as a result of the incident. Brock, 28, played in 31 games with the 49ers since 2015 and accumulated 112 total tackles, four interceptions and 25 passes defended in the timespan. In the wake of Brock's release, the 49ers have a gaping hole at cornerback as he was a projected start for 2017. They'll likely address the void in the draft or with a veteran addition in free agency.
Tramaine Brock had four tackles in the 49ers' week two preseason game against Denver.
The 49ers' CBs had trouble keeping the ball out of the hands of the Broncos' WRs on plays short of the sticks, which led to a lot of tackle opportunities for the Niners secondary. Brock isn't really worth a look in most leagues, he doesn't have the tackle numbers or big play ability to support it.
