The 49ers re-signed backup inside linebacker Tavares Gooden to a one-year contract, the club announced Tuesday.Gooden, a four-year veteran, was scheduled for unrestricted free agency.
Yep, the 49ers signed a cornerbackreturn man on Tuesday -- an hour or so before the official start of free agency.Of course, the 49ers needed to add a cornerback.
The clock is ticking on the start of free agency.
