Raiders sign former 49ers CB Tarell Brown

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The Raiders announced today they have signed unrestricted free agent CB Tarell Brown. It is a reported 1-year, $3.5 million deal fully guaranteed according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown comes over from the 49ers where he played his first seven seasons since being chosen in the fifth round of the 2007 draft.

Brown has been a full time starter for the 49ers for the past four seasons. He has six interceptions, 40 passes defended, and 143 tackles (114 solo) over those four season. Also in eight postseason starts, he had two interception, a forced fumble, fumble recovery, seven passed defended, and 32 tackles (28 solo).

This was an unexpected signing as no one had reported Brown as having interest from the Raiders or visiting the facility.

In Brown the Raiders get a solid starter at corner who at 29 years old is still relatively young. He graded out as one of the best free agent corners on the market by Pro Football Focus.

The Raiders were very much in need of an addition at corner with both of last year's starters free agents and the team not bringing either of them back.

Brown is expected to start opposite D.J. Hayden.
