49ers re-signed CB Perrish Cox to a one-year contract.
Cox wasn't tendered an offer as a restricted free agent and is likely coming back at the four-year veteran's minimum. He played 164 snaps on defense last season with 63 of those coming in the Wild Card win over Green Bay. Cox will be a sub-package player and special teams contributor in 2014.

The 49ers did not extend a tender to restricted free agent CB Perrish Cox.

He's now an unrestricted free agent. Cox is a sub-package corner and special teamer. At age 27, he should generate some minimum-salary contract offers.

CSN Bay Area reports the 49ers are unlikely to tender offers to restricted free agents CB Perrish Cox and DE Demarcus Dobbs.

Cox was an important fill-in during the 49ers' playoff run, but isn't worth $1.323 million. Dobbs' playing time tailed off late in the year, and he fared poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings across 300 snaps.

49ers signed CB Perrish Cox.

The move comes as CB Carlos Rogers (hamstring) awaits the results of an MRI. Cox spent nine games on the 49ers' roster earlier this season, playing 69 snaps on defense. He's just an emergency option for the playoffs.

Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.

Cox was on Seattle's roster for one day two weeks ago. He's back to serve as depth and take the roster spot of S Jeron Johnson, who was placed on I.R.

Seahawks waived CB Perrish Cox.

Cox wasn't even on the roster for 24 hours. It's possible something went awry with his physical. Either way, the 26-year-old is back on the street.

Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.

He'll take the roster spot of CB Walter Thurmond III, who was officially suspended for four games on Tuesday. For now, the Seahawks are expected to go with Byron Maxwell opposite Richard Sherman, and Jeremy Lane in the slot, but Cox could eventually see time on defense. The Seahawks will also likely make another signing at cornerback.

Free agent CB Perrish Cox is visiting the Seahawks Tuesday.

With Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond both banned, all free agent corners with a pulse are getting calls from Seattle. This is Cox's second visit with the team in the last two weeks. He'll get a contract as long as he passes a physical.

Free agent DBs Perrish Cox and Michael Huff worked out for the Seahawks last week.

The 'Hawks have been known to sign former 49ers since the rise of the Pete Carroll/Jim Harbaugh rivalry, so it's possible Cox will get a deal. He was waived by San Francisco last Tuesday. Seattle and San Francisco will meet for the second time this season in Week 14.

49ers waived CB Perrish Cox.

Cox had played just 69 snaps through the 49ers' first nine games, including only four since Week 7. He was no longer needed with Eric Wright coming off the NFI list. Cox had a strong rookie season for the Broncos in 2010, but went unsigned in 2011 as he awaited trial on sexual assault charges. Cox was found not guilty in the case, and signed by San Francisco in May 2012. Still only 26, it's possible Cox will get a look on waivers.

49ers CB Perrish Cox will not be suspended.

Cox was found not guilty of sexually assaulting a woman that had passed out at his Denver apartment in 2010. The woman has since filed a civil suit against him, but the NFL is turning the page. The incident was Cox's first brush with the league's personal conduct policy. Expect Cox to serve as a backup corner and second nickel back this season.

The Sacramento Bee calls CB Perrish Cox one of the standouts of the 49ers' offseason program.

Per beat writer Matt Barrows, Cox has "jumped out for his aggressiveness." Cox has taken snaps both on the outside and in the slot, and has also worked on punt returns. The 49ers' secondary is perhaps the most stacked in the league, but Cox's chances of earning a roster spot appear good.

49ers CB Perrish Cox could still be facing league discipline even though he was found not guilty in his sexual assault case.

"We will review the facts," said league spokesman Greg Aiello. "That is standard procedure." Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games under similar circumstances in 2010, but eventually had his ban reduced to four games. Cox is allowed to participate in the Niners' offseason program.
Tue, May 22, 2012 01:01:00 PM reports 49ers CB Perrish Cox is facing a civil lawsuit from the woman he was acquitted of sexually assaulting.

As is Cox's former teammate Demaryius Thomas, who was present "around" the time of the alleged assault, but never charged with a crime. As Profootballtalk points out, the lower standard of proof in civil cases means Cox could be hit with a costly judgment even though he was acquitted in his criminal case. The Niners surely knew of such a possibility when they signed Cox in March.
