The 49ers didn’t want cornerback Perrish Cox enough to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent.
That doesn’t mean they didn’t want him.
Cox’s agent Jordan Woy just tweeted out word that his client had agreed to a one-year deal with the 49ers.
Cox filled in well enough for the 49ers in the playoffs, but they didn’t want to spend $1.323 million on him. Now, he’ll get a chance to provide depth and play special teams again.
