Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Seahawks have done four-months worth of work on free agent CB Tramaine Brock regarding the domestic violation case against him that was recently dismissed.
La Canfora says that Seattle is “very serious” about signing Brock to a contract and there is a lot of interest from others teams including the Texans and Vikings among others.
La Canfora adds that it’s “very likely” Brock signs with a new team at some point this week.
The Seahawks managed to secure the first visit with Brock on Monday, so you would have to think they’re the early favorites to sign him. However, a lot of could change if he leaves Seattle without an agreement in place.
Brock, 28, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Belhaven College back in 2010. He was in the final year of his five-year, $17.323 million contract and set to make a base salary of $3.1 million for the 2017 season when the 49ers cut him in a move that freed up $3.55 million of available cap space.
In 2016, Brock appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 59 tackles, no sacks, one interception, a forced fumble and 14 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 23 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
