Eagles Have Some Interest in CB Tramaine Brock
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - A somewhat sizeable domino dropped on the cornerback market Wednesday when former San Francisco 49ers starter Tramaine Brock was cleared in an alleged domestic-violence incident.
Brock was released by the Niners a day after he was arrested back in April but the felony case was dismissed citing a lack of evidence.
Already a number of teams have expressed interest in bringing Brock in, four according to the Sacramento Bee, and an NFL source confirmed to 973espn.com that the Eagles are in that group, no surprise considering the dearth of talent in the organization at the cornerback position.
San Francisco is also interested in bringing the 28-year-old back in the fold where he was the team's starting left cornerback in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons, amassing four interceptions and 25 pass breakups in 31 starts over that span.
When it comes to the NFL's personal-conduct policy, however, being out of peril from a legal standpoint doesn't necessarily mean you will not be subject to a league suspension.
