The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday they have signed CB
“Tramaine is a great example of what hard work and dedication can lead to,” said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. “He has taken advantage of his opportunities since signing with our team as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and has certainly earned this extension. Extending the contracts of our young and talented players has always been, and will continue to be, one of our primary goals.”

After serving as a core special teams players and key reserve for the 49ers the last three seasons, Brock (5-10, 197) capitalized on his opportunity this season and increased his role in the team’s secondary. In his first-career start on October 6, 2013, against the Houston Texans, Brock registered two interceptions, returning one for his first career touchdown. He was rewarded for his performance with NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Brock went on to record four interceptions over a five-game span.
Brock was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the 49ers in 2010, and went on to earn a spot on the team’s opening day roster. In 40 career games, he has registered 34 tackles, six interceptions, 14 passes defensed and one touchdown. Brock has also made an impact on the special teams units, notching 22 tackles and one forced fumble during his career. In 2012, Brock led the special teams unit with 15 tackles.
A 25-year-old native of Gulfport, MS, Brock initially spent two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College before transferring to the University of Minnesota for one season. He finished his collegiate career at Belhaven University in Jackson, MS, where his jersey is retired as the only player in the history of the school’s program to have played in the NFL.
