SANTA CLARA, Calif.–On Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers released cornerback Tramaine Brock from their roster. The drop comes a day after Brock was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. The report had stated that there were visible marks on the victim.

Brock is the first such case of an arrest under the new regime of GM John Lynch, which might suggest the 49ers will be going after a zero tolerance policy, especially when it comes to something as heinous as domestic violence. It was foreshadowed in the introductory presser of Lynch and head coach Kyle Shannahan that a zero tolerance policy would be held for off the field issues.

It looks like Lynch is a man of his word as he tries to renavigate the organization to being respectable once again.

Brock had been one of the longest tenured 49ers on the roster, dating back to 2010. Last season, Brock had 49 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception. On his career, he’s picked the ball off 11 times and has two touchdowns.

Brock was heading into a contract year, as his four-year deal was coming to an end.

The release, of course, will weaken an already poor secondary but shows that there is no room on the team for any criminals and that the 49ers will once again attempt to “win with class”.
