The 49ers bolstered their roster on Tuesday with the additions of veteran kicker Phil Dawson and receiver Marlon Moore. But the team might not be done making offseason moves just yet.
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com spoke with 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke at the league owners meetings in Arizona to get an update on the recent activity. Baalke also told Maiocco the team is still “considering” free agent veteran defensive back Nnamdi Asomugha after he had a “great visit” last week at team headquarters.
“The 49ers’ top five cornerbacks from last season are in line to return,” Maiocco wrote. “Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox are under contract. Tramaine Brock was tendered as a restricted free agent. If Asomugha and the 49ers come to a contract agreement, Asomugha would join the 49ers with no guarantees of a starting job or playing time, Baalke suggested.”
