Linebacker Ahmad Brooks signed a waiver to participate in the 49ers’ offseason earlier in the week. Today, the 49ers announced Brooks signed a new two-year contract. Terms of the contract were not immediately known. Brooks, a four-year veteran, was a restricted free agent.
“We are very happy that Ahmad will be with us going forward,” 49ers coach Mike Singletary said in a statement. “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 was second on the 49ers with six sacks.
