Veteran cornerback Dre' Bly has signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, who moved quickly to fill the spot created by Walt Harris' knee injury.
The Denver Broncos released Bly in a salary dump in February after he spent two of his 10 NFL seasons with the club, starting all 32 games and intercepting seven passes. Bly has been chosen for two Pro Bowls and won a championship with the St. Louis Rams.
San Francisco signed Bly a few hours after he arrived in town for a workout.
Harris probably will miss the season after tearing a ligament in his right knee during workouts Tuesday. The 13-year pro has been a mainstay of San Francisco's defense since 2006.
