In the event that district attorney in Santa Clara, California does not pursue charges against Brock for the recent domestic violence incident that led to him being released earlier in the week, sources tell Cole that he could be in line to make as much as $10-$11 million per year in a new contract. Cole says it’s possible that a team could sign him before the draft to fill their need at cornerback.
According to Cole, the 49ers actually wanted to sign Brock to an extension before he was involved in this domestic incident.
Police officers were called to domestic-violence report at Brock’s home and found a woman he is dating with “visible injuries.” Brock was later released from jail after posting bond and the 49ers wasted little time in moving on from him.
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.
