49ers release Tramaine Brock

Cornerback Tramaine Brock was a member of the 49ers organization when he was arrested in connection to a domestic incident in Santa Clara on Thursday.

He’s not a member of the organization any more. The 49ers announced on Friday that they have released Brock.

Brock was arrested for felony domestic violence after officers responded to a call on Thursday night and found Brock’s girlfriend with marks around her neck. NBC Bay Area reported bail was set at $50,000 and Brock was freed after posting it on Friday.

Brock is now a free agent, but his legal issues make a quick return to work in the NFL an unlikely turn of events.

    Great job lynch , way to make a statement and to send a message but the true question is will the steelers learn from this chain of events.

    See, Seattle? This is how it’s done right. We get rid of players instead of keeping unlike what you’re doing with Boykin. 2 arrests in 11 days? Pathetic. Of course your own members don’t even wanna be there anymore I.e. Dick Sherman. Brock sucked anyways. Go get Lattimore!

    “Brock is now a free agent, but his legal issues make a quick return to work in the NFL an unlikely turn of events.”

    Heck all he did was choke a woman. If he was a Giant or Raven that might mean a whole 1 game suspension.

    Good move by John Lynch. Who needs this Chris Brown wannabe anyways? He’s average at best.

    I want to hear the level of class this player, team, and fans have after this.
    Trolling comes back to bite.

    If he was a better player the Niners would have kept him. Luckily we won’t see anymore ray McDonald or aldon smith nonsense from the Niners cuz they don’t have any good players anymore to look the other way on.

    Good move – from a 49er fan.

    We dont need woman beaters on our team. Looking at you Joe Mixon.

    Unless your any good, your career as an NFL player is done son.

    Good riddance! Love the fact that Lynch is cleaning house when he said he won’t tolerate bad eggs anymore. This guy was mediocre at best and is addition by subtraction.

    Lynch gets more and more of my respect as time passes.

    Eagles on line 1 please

  13. cabsf415 says: Apr 7, 2017 6:25 PM

    If you watched any 49er game last season he should’ve been cut a long time ago

  14. fumblenuts says: Apr 7, 2017 6:25 PM

    Boykin got caught with a little weed this FOOL was going to choke her out for good.

    Your false indignation and holier-than-thou attitude might carry some weight if your team had not given human crime wave Aldon Smith so many chances before finally cutting ties with him.
    Hypocritical little fanboys can be so silly sometimes.

    Yet some team will still draft Joe Mixon

  17. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 7, 2017 6:29 PM

    Future 49er player reunions will be held under the watchful eyes of prison guards.

  18. dmoney253 says: Apr 7, 2017 6:34 PM

    hey niners816, brock being arrested for domestic violence and Boykin being arrested for MJ possession and then again for probation violation (which is a result of the MJ possession arrest) are completely different.

    How many times was Aldon smith arrested before he was released? It seems like it was 6 or 7 times, but who is counting.

    That’s what you get, trash.

    Dude had like 4 mil gauranteed for 2017 … not anymore!

  21. pau49ers says: Apr 7, 2017 6:58 PM

    Nice. The Niners draft a CB now and the secondary will be money for years….

    san fransisco is glad the 49ers abandoned them

  23. alphabeta49er says: Apr 7, 2017 7:47 PM

    I think half the team from the Harbaugh years is wearing orange jumpsuits now

  24. bobgust says: Apr 7, 2017 7:59 PM

    “san fransisco is glad the 49ers abandoned them”

    Not really. But what would a seachicken fan know except it is all downhill for them here on out

    It’s amazingly easy to do the right thing when the player in question isn’t very good in the first place.
    Basically, this guy wouldn’t have made it out of cap anyway…

  27. truninerfan49 says: Apr 7, 2017 8:33 PM

    He will be a Dallas cowboy by Monday

  28. TIM says: Apr 7, 2017 8:48 PM

    He was a pretty darn good CB & was going to be the starter at one CB spot for sure. Glad Ltnch/Shanahan have changed the 9ers culture back to what it had always been before Harbaugh/Baalke.

    You probably don’t follow the niners, but just so you know – he was the #1 CB there.

    Innocent until proven guilty.
    Granted it doesn’t look good at all but there should be a complete report on the bosses desk and reviewed before making that move. Remember, he’s a rookie again as a GM.

  31. tonebones says: Apr 7, 2017 11:26 PM

    What a dummy. I don’t understand why he grabbed her around the neck. It’s much more acceptable, you know, to grab them by the p—-

  32. deprado1 says: Apr 8, 2017 7:22 AM

    So how is Joe Mixon different than this guy. If he gets drafted, that team is hypocritical.

  33. omeimontis says: Apr 8, 2017 4:12 PM

    The sea hogs will likely sign him. Ditto the Raiders.

  34. allacl says: Apr 8, 2017 8:24 PM

    Hasty move by a rookie GM. Should have let things settle a bit before making such move. He should have said team does not condone the accused actions and will make swift moves once case is brought to light.

  35. allacl says: Apr 8, 2017 8:28 PM

    Now the Lynch set the no tolerance rule at arrest and accusation, wonder if he’d cut Hoyer if some random person claims Hoyer punched him/her with his rocket arm.
