--Wide receiver Pierre Garçon

The new league began at 1 p.m. on Thursday, at which point the signings could become official.

 Here is a minute-by-minute 49ers tracker of free-agent activity:

--Wide receiver Torrey Smith, whom the 49ers released on Monday, signed a reported three-year, $15 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith was scheduled to make $8 million with the 49ers this season.

--Safety Antoine Bethea also was not out of a job long. Two days after the 49ers released Bethea, he found a new home in the NFC West with the Arizona Cardinals. Bethea agreed to a three-year contract, the Cardinals announced.

--Kicker Phil Dawson will not be with the 49ers this season, sources told CSNBayArea.com. The 49ers appear to be focusing on free-agent kickers Greg Zuerlein or Nick Folk.

1:13 p.m. -- The Arizona Cardinals are expected to sign Dawson, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

1:15 p.m. -- Free-agent linebacker Gerald Hodges has a visit scheduled with the Kansas City Chiefs, reports Pro Football Talk. Hodges started 12 games for the 49ers last season. He was suspended for the Dec. 18 game at Atlanta for breaking team rules. The club is not expected to attempt to re-sign him.

Gould is the only player who had not been previously reported as agreeing to terms with the 49ers. Gould, 35, appeared in just 10 games for the New York Giants last season and made all 10 of his field-goal attempts but missed three of his 23 extra-point attempts. He ranks seventh all-time in field-goal accuracy at 85.886 percent.

--8:15 p.m. -- The 49ers have reached a two-year contract agreement with wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, a league source confirmed. The NFL Network was first to report the agreement. Robinson previously played for Shanahan in Washington and Atlanta.

The NFL Network was first to report the agreement. Barkley, a three-year veteran, started six games for the Bears late in the season.
