The Seattle Seahawks have added depth to their secondary unit by inking the former San Francisco 49ers starting cornerback Tramaine Brock.

The Seahawks signed and added cornerback Tramaine Brock to its roster on Wednesday, August 16, a day after meeting with him.

[agg-ad id=”834″ align=”center”][agg-ad id=”442″ align=”center”]Brock, who was initially signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent back in 2010 out of Belhaven University, has started 31 of 32 games over the past couple of seasons for the Niners, but was waived during the offseason after the cornerback was arrested and accused of domestic violence on a woman he was dating. The 28-year-old 5’10 ft, 197 lb was charged with felony domestic violence in June last year, but those charges were terminated last week by the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office after it said that there was no enough evidence to proceed with the legal case because the accuser declined to cooperate.

The Seahawks has long been looking for a starting cornerback opposite Richard Sherman after DeShawn Shead suffered a major knee injury in most recent season’s playoffs game. Rookie Shaquill Griffin and veteran Jeremy Lane have been the pair most likely to compete for the position and fill in Shead’s job.

The Seahawks also announced on Wednesday that the franchise signed linebacker Rodney Butler and cut wide receiver Jamel Johnson and safety Simone (injured).
