Cornerback Tramaine Brock has played in 10 career games against the Seattle Seahawks, including an interception off of Russell Wilson in 2015, but by the end of the week they could be teammates. Per PFT’s Mike Florio, the two are set to meet very soon, just as Brock was cleared of domestic violence charges against the mother of his children.
Brock released a statement on the matter on Friday:

The alleged victim in the case even stated through her lawyer that the altercation was strictly verbal.
Brock has played in 80 NFL games, all with the San Francisco 49ers, including 31 starts over the last two seasons. He had five interceptions as mostly-a-reserve in 2013, missed most of 2014, and had four picks in the last two years. The team released him shortly after his arrest. He may have been on his way out anyway.
Niners fans cringed as Brock allowed four touchdowns in a five-day span between games against the Cowboys and Cardinals. Former defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil said at the time that “Brock absorbs the hardest job play in and play out,” trying to give him some slack for those missed opportunities. It seems like Brock would not be a surefire solution to Seattle’s needs opposite of Richard Sherman this season, but he could be added to the competition before long.
