On Wednesday morning, the Seahawks signed former 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock.
On Wednesday afternoon, Brock's agent called out the 49ers.

On August 9, the Santa Clara County DA dismissed the domestic violence case against Brock due to insufficient evidence, as the alleged victim declined to cooperate.
Soon thereafter, NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reported:

And a little over an hour later:
49ers spokesman: The #49ers did not reach out to Tramaine Brock's camp and there is no interest in re-signing him.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) August 9, 2017
On April 7, the 49ers released Brock less than four hours after news surfaced that Brock was arrested for a domestic incident.
A couple days later, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers made the right decision to part ways with Brock.
“You’re dealing with people’s lives, so I’d never want to use a situation as sending a message. It’s just us trying to do the right thing, whatever that is. I think each situation’s different and you’ve got to look into every situation, gather all the information that you can.
"When you do, you try as hard as you can to make the right decision. And I think that’s what I felt we did.”
