The San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran cornerback Josh Norman, per Jay Glazer of FOX Sports with details from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.


Norman is likely a depth addition behind Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley. The 49ers will need to make a roster move to officially add the veteran cornerback to the team.

The Carolina Panthers made Norman (6-0, 200) a fifth-round selection out of Coastal Carolina in 2012. He registered 24 tackles, two tackles for a loss, four passes defensed, an interception, a touchdown, and a forced fumble through nine games, including three starts, with the Buffalo Bills last season. Before that, the cornerback spent time with the Washington Football Team.

San Francisco reportedly had interest in Norman in 2016 but couldn't get the cornerback to visit with the team. He went on to sign with Washington, where he spent four seasons.

Norman, 33, has recorded 440 tackles, a sack, 84 passes defensed, 15 interceptions, three touchdowns, and 13 forced fumbles through his nine NFL seasons. He is a was named a first-team All-Pro and selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015.
