Report: Former 49ers cornerback will sign with Seahawks again

Perrish Cox is reportedly heading back to the Pacific Northwest.

The former 49ers cornerback will sign with Seattle, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

He appeared in 16 games for the 49ers in 2012 and nine games the next season before being released in November 2013.

Cox signed with the Seahawks a couple of weeks later, was released after appearing in two games, and then re-signed with the 49ers right before the playoffs began.

In 2014 with San Francisco, he started 14 games and recorded five interceptions.

He appeared in 24 games (22 starts) over the last two seasons with Tennessee.

The Titans released him in late November.
