The 49ers today announced the signing of free-agent cornerback Karl Paymah, whom the club pursued last offseason before he signed with the Vikings. Paymah signed a one-year contract.


Paymah, a four-year veteran, appeared in 12 games with the Vikings and started twice. He would be earmarked to take the place of Marcus Hudson, who signed this week with the Panthers.
