The Cowboys drafted Brown in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was with the Cowboys through the 2022 season. He made 69 starts in Dallas.
Brown recorded 324 total tackles, nine interceptions, and five forced fumbles during his time with the Cowboys.
Brown’s signing Tuesday comes as the 49ers are dealing with injuries in the secondary. The 49ers placed Samuel Womack on injured reserve before Week 2.
Brown and the 49ers will play the Cowboys Oct. 8th on Sunday Night Football. It’s an important game for the Cowboys, as the 49ers have knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs in the previous two postseasons.
