The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday evening they signed cornerback Tramaine Brock to a four-year contract extension. We'll see more details in the coming days, but the initial report is that the deal is worth $16 million total, with $7 million in guaranteed money. Of that $7 million, Ian Rapoport is reporting $4 million is in the form of a signing bonus.

The contract is good through 2017, but with the signing bonus paid this year, it would seem that the bonus will be prorated over five years instead of four years. That would mean the $4 million is worth a cap hit of $800,000 per year. The remaining $3 million would fit in through some base contract guarantees.

49ers GM Trent Baalke made his weekly appearance on 95.7 The Game, and he was asked about the team's progress with Tarell Brown. Baalke simply said the two sides were still in discussion, and still working through the process. Matt Barrows had this tweet Friday evening:

Does this likely mark the end of the road for Tarell Brown with the 49ers? Or will the two sides figure something out? If Brock's deal was the framework for the 49ers offer to Brown, the 49ers might be content to see what the market dictates.
