Early life[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Bronson went undrafted in the 1997 NFL Draft, and subsequently signed with the San Francisco 49ers. During his rookie year, Bronson recorded 24 tackles and an interception. The following year, Bronson, splitting playing time with Tim McDonald at safety, led the team in interceptions with four.[2] In 2001, Bronson set the record for the longest interception return in franchise history against the Chicago Bears, returning the pick 97 yards for a touchdown.[3]
