If charges are dropped by the district attorney, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock could be in for a significant payday, reports Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. Brock was quickly released by the 49ers following an arrest last month and booked on suspicion of felony domestic violence.
However, as reported by Cole, there remains the possibility these charges will be dropped, and “several NFL teams are keeping tabs” on the situation. If he’s cleared of these charges, then Brock could be in line to bring in an average of $10 million-plus per year on a new deal before the draft.
Cole reports the 49ers were close to offering Brock an extension before the arrest that led to his release. He also notes this situation could have some bearing on the draft itself, which is loaded with talent at the cornerback position.
Prior to being released, Brock was about to enter into the final year of a four-year contract and was set to count $4.3 million against the cap. Originally an undrafted free agent out of Belhaven University in 2010, Brock had been with the 49ers throughout his seven-year career.
