The 49ers tendered a one-year contract to restricted free agent CB Tramaine Brock on Thursday afternoon. Brock was tendered the lowest possible level at $1.3 million. Since Brock was an undrafted free agent in 2010, there would be no compensation if he is signed by another team. The 49ers will be able to match any offer he receives.
Brock spent time as a CB in 2011 with interceptions in his first two games before suffering a hand injury. This past year, Brock was the fifth CB behind Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox. He was a standout on special teams which included two forced fumbles in the 2012 season. One of his forced fumbles on a kickoff against the St. Louis Rams in week 10 ended up leading to a 49ers touchdown. Brock would be an unrestricted free agent if he signs his tender.
Meanwhile, the 49ers also announced they signed WR Joe Hastings, who made the 53-man roster in 2011 as an undrafted free agent. He suffered a leg injury during the 2012 training camp and was released before the season.
