Reports: San Francisco 49ers To Meet With WR Emmanuel Sanders, Sign CB Chris Cook

According to separate reports, the San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to meet with free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent cornerback Chris Cook.

Pro Football Talk reported Friday that Sanders, who was visiting the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, would continue his tour of potential destinations in San Francisco if he didn’t agree to terms with the Chiefs or one of the other teams he’s met with. He’s also been to visit Tampa Bay and Jacksonville.

Meanwhile, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported the deal between the 49ers and Cook, who visited with team officials on Friday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Cook has the body type at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds that the 49ers have been looking for as a press-coverage cornerback.

Cook, 27, spent four years with the Minnesota Vikings, where he played in 34 games and started 29 without getting an interception. He had 13 passes defensed and made 47 tackles in 2013, playing in 12 games and starting 11. Cook gave up a league-high nine touchdown passes despite missing four games with injuries.

Cook was a second-round pick by the Vikings out of Virginia in 2010.

Sanders, who will turn 27 on Monday, had career highs of 67 catches, 740 receiving yards and six touchdown receptions for the Steelers in 2013, playing in all 16 games and starting 11.

In four years with Pittsburgh, Sanders had 161 receptions for 2,030 yards and 11 scores. He also spent some time as a kick and punt returner, averaging 26.8 yards on 10 kick returns in 2013.

He was a third-round pick by the Steelers out of SMU in 2010.
