The 49ers and RFA Ahmad Brooks agreed to a 2 year deal today. Brooks previously received an upgraded second-round tender from the 49ers that would have paid him $1.76 million had he signed that offer sheet.
“We are very happy that Ahmad will be with us going forward,” coach Mike Singletary said in a statement released by the 49ers. “He made positive strides last season and showed us what he is capable of. We expect Ahmad to continue to progress in the coming years.”
Brooks, 25, made the move from inside to outside linebacker last season and impressed coaches by posting a career-high six sacks and tying the franchise record for forced fumbles with four. In 27 career NFL games (seven starts), Brooks has 77 tackles, 8.0 sacks and five forced fumbles.
