Robert Zack Bronson (born January 28, 1974) is a former professional American football safety in the National Football League. He played professionally for the San Francisco 49ers his entire NFL career from 1997 to 2003.
Bronson was born in Jasper, Texas, and graduated from Jasper High School (Jasper, Texas). He attended McNeese State University.
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.
