A day after visiting with free agent cornerback Tramaine Brock, the Seattle Seahawks have reportedly signed the former San Francisco 49ers starter.

He also said he hoped to resume his football career as quickly as possible, and he visited the Seahawks on Tuesday.

The 49ers released Brock on April 7, less than 24 hours after his arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence and child endangerment.

Asked about the incident, Brock said, "It was just a misunderstood situation because I wasn't even at the house at the time".

"I mean, I know what I have to do", Brock said. I stayed in an unhealthy relationship for the sake of my children, which was not in my best interest.

On the field, this has to be seen as a major coup for a Seahawks team that has struggled at cornerback opposite Richard Sherman over the past couple seasons. But the process and everything is under the rug.

Promising second-year player Rashard Robinson is penciled in to start, while veterans Dontae Johnson and Keith Reaser are competing for the job on the other side.

"Brock's domestic violence arrest from April - which he was cleared of last week - may drive down his price but plenty of teams are in need of quality cornerbacks, especially one who started all 16 games in 2016", he continued. Butler is an undrafted rookie out of New Mexico State who led the country in tackles last season with 165. Despite the dismissal of charges, he still could face NFL discipline via the league's personal conduct policy.
