In a rebuilding period like the one that the 49ers are going through it’s important not to have any setbacks. Unfortunately, this very thing happened recently following a reported domestic violence incident involving starting cornerback Tramaine Brock.
The primary reason authorities were called to the home of Brock’s where they saw the woman that Brock is dating with visible bruises and injuries. He was not at the scene when the police were investigating, but he later came to the police station to talk to the police about the incident. He would then be booked and arrested. It is certain that he will make bail and have to go to court about all of this. As far as what this means
for him in the league, he will receive a six-game suspension for it being his first offense of this kind of crime as league policy regarding domestic violence. If he is caught doing this same offense again, then he will be banned from the NFL for life.
What this will mean for the 49ers
The current incident has shades of Ray McDonald all over it. McDonald, much like Brock, was also involved in the same thing in 2014. However, with McDonald was later caught doing the same crime as mentioned before, and is currently ineligible to play in the NFL ever again.
Hopefully, this won’t be the case with Brock. The defense is already tragic as evident in last season’s efforts, and they are going to need all of the help they can get. Let’s all hope that he learns from these mistakes and seeks help after all of this.
