Perrish Cox is back with the 49ers for another year

Perrish Cox, James Starks AP

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.

    I am glad Niners addressing the FA methodically. The flashy signings do not bring results in the long term. It would have been stupid for them to spend money of a free agent CB with 11 draft picks and 6 in first 100.

    At worst, Cox is a TC body. He played will against GB to at least get a shot.

    49ers need new corners. Also have a gigantic need at QB.

    Cox pleaded innocent to rape charges saying he didn’t sleep with a drunk woman at his house let alone rape her.

    Then the woman became pregnant and the childs DNA matches his.

    My theory is this…. Cox is God and it was immaculate conception.

    He’s better than Brown. Proved it in the playoffs.

    Not bad considering our DB situation at the moment.

    But why not sign him to a 3 year deal with with 1-year options by the 49ers with a lower base salary and load the contract with incentives for him to perform each season?

    Most players are also motivated by money, not just loyalty.

    Glad they resigned Cox was a little disappointed when they resigned Wright but not Cox. Who was clearly the better db last year.

    I’m not surprised. I’ve always heard the people in San Fran loved Cox.

    They have 11 draft picks and 6 in first 100? Man, can you imagine what a HC who knows how to draft could do with that?

    He’ll fit right in with the other rapists on the team. #notsureiffootballteamorlistofsexualpredators

    With Cox back the CB situation is not as bad as some might have thought. Culliver and Brock will most likely be the starters with Wright and Cox being the backups and/or taking the slot. Cook and whatever rookie they draft will be developmental (unless the rookie is that good.)

    I think at this point, unless a fantastic trade lands in their laps, the Niners will focus on the draft and getting Kaepernick, Crabtree, Aldon Smith and Iupati to sign extentions.

    Hard to get them all back, but there is a method to the madness.

    What other rapists? Name one enlighten me

    Ahh yes, the usual assortment of tough behind the keyboard crowd and bigoted posters here. All is well in PFT comment land.

    Thats what I thought

    Glad to see Cox & Wright back. Now stay far, far away from Carlos Rogers. I firmly believe that if Cox or Wright were in the NFC Champ game on the 4th down play, Sea would of never scored. Wright & Cox played so well in the 2 playoff games before Sea. Then Rogers’ gets most of the snap against Sea. When I saw Roger’s on the field for the fourth down I knew Sea was gonna attack him.

    grimreaper12 ..yeah the team needs corners..but they need to give CK a chance. He did pretty well last season and hopefully he does even better next season. Only time will tell though.

    tjbra9 ..its re-signed, not resigned. (resigned means to quit).
