Domestic violence charges against former 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock were dropped this week and Brock has offered his first comment since that decision by the Santa Clara district attorney’s office.

“I would like to formally apologize to my family and children for the verbal altercation that brought about this situation,” Brock said in a statement provided to PFT. “These past 5 months have been a time to reevaluate and grow as a person. I had hoped to keep family matters private, but at this time I have to get the facts out. I have never put my hands on the mother of my children, as what has been publicly reported. The information in the police report is untrue. I stayed in an unhealthy relationship for the sake of my children, which was not in my best interest. As the case I was involved in has been dismissed, I am eager to move forward and focus on sharing custody of my two children and ensuring a stable environment for them.

Lastly, I look forward to continuing my football career in the near future.

Tramaine Brock Sr.”

The lawyer for the mother of Brock’s children issued a statement this week saying that her client refused to testify and said that she and Brock had a “verbal altercation” rather than a physical one. The dismissal of charges doesn’t eliminate the possibility of league discipline for Brock.

Brock was released by the 49ers at the time of his arrest and the team said they won’t bring him back. He has reportedly heard interest from other teams since the charges were dismissed.

  1. Translation: my babies mom realized me with less income isnt as good for her as me making millions and buying her a new house, new car and $10,000 a month child support. Thats why she is now saying i never put my hands on her.

  2. The next time the players negotiate with the league, demand number 1 is to remove the commish’s power to suspend players without cause.

  3. Federal appeals court ruled that the commissioner had broad powers to suspend players. That power needs to be checked. There was no credible evidence that Brady and the Pats deflated footballs.

  4. Ezekiel Elliot is suspended 6 games even though charges have been dropped. It is becoming ludicrous. I support punishing players for their deeds, not if they were merely accused. The pendulum has swung too far the other way.

  5. Maybe he is telling the truth, obviously there wasn’t much physical evidence or the case wouldn’t have been dependent on her testimony. Women level false accusations against wealthy athletes all the time.
