The San Francisco 49ers have signed free agent safety and special teams standout Darcel McBath to a one-year contract, adding depth to the secondary.
McBath is the second safety added by Super Bowl runner-up San Francisco since the start of free agency. The NFC champion Niners signed Craig Dahl to a three-year contract Saturday, another move to help fill the void left when Dashon Goldson received a five-year deal from Tampa Bay last week.
They also brought in veteran Charles Woodson for a meeting last week.
The 27-year-old McBath spent the 2012 season with the 49ers after signing just before training camp on July 20. He appeared in all 19 games, finishing with eight special-teams tackles in the regular season and one in the playoffs.

Colin Kaepernick in 2012 only had one viable wideout in Michael Crabtree; however, with the addition of Anquan Boldin, he now has a pair. Gone is the soft play of Randy Moss, soft routes and weak over the middle. Boldin is the exact opposite, a tough as nails receiver who just gets it done. He isn’t the highest jumper, the fastest runner, but he is one of the toughest pass...

According to Aaron WIlson of the Baltimore Sun, Anquan Boldin passed his physical with the San Francisco 49ers, which means he officially no longer a Raven and Baltimore has received a 6th round pick in exchange for him.

This past week saw the departure of another beloved special teams player. Last week it was Josh Cribbs, this week its Phil Dawson.
