NFL Free Agency: 49ers Looking at Cornerback Sean Smith


With Percy Harvin traded to the Seahawks, the 49ers are looking to respond by signing a shutdown cornerback.

No, not Darrelle Revis, but Sean Smith of the Dolphins, who is one of the hottest free agents on the market.

Citing a league source, the Sacramento Bee reports that the 49ers are interested in Smith, who recorded 59 combined tackles and two interceptions in 16 games last season, along with three forced fumbles.

At the NFL the combine last month, the 49ers were checking in with agents on the cornerback market, thus confirming that they are indeed looking to upgrade their secondary.
