SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Tramaine Brock is about to make his first NFL start, yet he is getting paid like he’s already a solid starter.
The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to terms on a four-year, $16 million deal with the cornerback, who is set to be a free agent next March. The deal includes $7 million in guaranteed money.
Brock, an undrafted free agent from Belhaven, will start for the injured Tarell Brown on Monday night at Washington.
Brock has been outstanding this season as the nickel cornerback. He took over for an injured Nnamdi Asomugha in Week 4 and did not give up the job. Asomugha has since been released.
