The San Francisco 49ers have lost a couple of key defensive backs over the last couple of seasons, including safety Mark Barron last offseason and cornerback Carlos Rogers this offseason.
On Friday, the 49ers officially kept one of their own cornerbacks, re-siging Perrish Cox to a one-year deal via an official release from the team.
The deal was first agreed to on Tuesday as reported by Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.

Cox was originally drafted with the 137th overall pick of the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. After a year in Denver, Cox was released and signed with the 49ers. He was cut last season and singed with the rival Seattle Seahawks. Cox was released, signed and released again by the Seahawks again before inking with the 49ers for the second time last season.
Cox had five tackles in 11 total games last season.
