San Francisco 49ers Free Agency 2012: 49ers Sign Former Broncos CB Perrish Cox

According to a tweet from ESPN's Josina Anderson, the San Francisco 49ers have signed former Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox to a two-year-deal.

This signing comes on the heels of the Niners re-signing cornerback Tramaine Brock to a one-year deal on Monday. Cornerback Carlos Rogers is expected to be pursued by the rival St. Louis Rams so the Niners are doing what is necessary to make sure their defensive backfield is prepared to face the high-powered quarterbacks and offenses it will face this season.

Cox was released by the Denver Broncos prior to the 2011 season amid a sexual assault case which he was found not guilty on March 2. Mile High Report describes him as a "high risk, high reward type player" with "unquestioned talent". But his off the field issues have always been a concern both before he was drafted and now.

Cox played 15 games in 2010, starting nine for the Broncos and recorded 58 tackles, one interception and forced two fumbles. He can also serve as a return man.
