Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers CB Mike Rumph has been working out with the second team in his bid to return to the cornerback position after a failed year at safety.

Chris Cooper signed by Seahawks

Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Seattle Seahawks have signed free agent DL Chris Cooper (49ers) to a contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Lawson looking to make immediate impact

Dennis Georgatos, of the Contra Costa Times, reports San Francisco 49ers DL Manny Lawson will likely line up as a rush end opposite the left tackle on passing downs. The team hopes Lawson can provide the them with a consistent pass rush, something they've been lacking for years.

He can make the quarterback scramble and force him into other people. It's going to do a lot for everybody across the board."
