The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of former South Carolina State defensive back Alex Brown. To make room on the roster, the team has waived defensive end Damontre Moore.

Brown registered 90 tackles, 26 passes defensed, seven interceptions, and one sack in 31 games with 25 starts during five seasons with the Bulldogs. He started all 11 games in 2018 while recording 42 tackles, eight passes defensed, four interceptions, and one sack.

Brown took part in the 49ers' rookie minicamp earlier this month, according to Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group.

San Francisco signed Moore on April 5 following his time with the San Diego Fleet of the now defunct Alliance of American Football.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote the following about Brown within his scouting report:

"Explosive, fast athlete with the size of a nickel cornerback but lacking the play traits for a smooth transition inside. Brown has decent ball production and his monster workout numbers will have teams scrambling for additional tape, but he needs plenty of additional work with his patience, footwork and route recognition. His length and recovery speed are major check marks in his favor, but a practice squad spot could be the goal as he continues to work on the fundamentals of the position."
