A little over a month after the 49ersplaced an original round tender on cornerback Tramaine Brock, the team announced that Brock has signed his tender. The contract is worth $1.323 million, and it will allow Brock to hit unrestricted free agency following the 2013 season.
The 49ers got their offseason workout program going today, and this allows Brock to join the rest of the team. He will join a cornerback group that will feature as much competition as anywhere on the roster. Brock is on the lower end of the totem pole, but there will be opportunities to make a name for himself as we approach the season. The 49ers added Nnamdi Asomugha earlier this month, which means the cornerback depth chart includes Brock, Nnamdi, Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox.
Brock was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2010, and worked his way on to the team's Week 1 roster. In 2011, Brock set a career high with two interceptions in 11 games played. He continued to contribute in 2012, logging time in all 16 regular season games, and tying the team lead with 15 tackles on special teams.
