The 49ers re-signed unrestricted free agent cornerback Donald Strickland on Saturday.
Strickland, a Bay Area native and six-year veteran originally joined the 49ers in 2006 after spending time with the Eagles and the Colts.
He played in 13 games with 4 starts in 2007, seeing significant action in the 49ers nickel package. Strickland finished the season with 33 tackles and five passes defensed including one at Arizona when he prevented a game-winning touchdown by batting the ball out of the hands of then-Cardinals receiver Bryant Johnson in the end zone.
Strickland (5'10,187) was a third-round pick out of Colorado by the Colts in 2003.
