The 49ers signed cornerback Allen Rossum today, according to the NFL Network. He was released by the Steelers on February 22nd and, since he is a vested veteran, was able immediately sign with any team. The terms of the contract are unknown at this time.

Rossum is entering his 10th NFL season. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 1998 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He played for the Atlanta Falcons from 2002 to 2006 becoming their all time leader in kick off and punt return yardage.
