At least one veteran returning to 49ers secondary


The San Francisco 49ers ending up keeping cornerback Perrish Cox after all.

The two sides have agreed to a one-year deal, the team announced Friday. Cox’s agent Jordan Woy tweeted the news first.

Cox, 27, played in nine regular-season games with the 49ers in 2013 and two with the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers re-signed him for the playoffs to help replace Carlos Rogers (hamstring) and were pleased with the results. They had a chance to tender Cox a contract as a restricted free agent but were not willing to spend $1.323 million.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Cox will provide depth and experience for the 49ers secondary and special teams.
