49ers, Moss agree to one-year deal on same day as workout

Veteran wide receiver Randy Moss agreed to a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, according to a league source.

Moss worked out for the 49ers on Monday, catching passes from 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh for about 15 minutes, CSN Bay Area reported. Moss, 35, is attempting a comeback after sitting out last season.

49ers CEO Jed York acknowledged Monday the team was trying to find a receiver with big-play ability.

"Jim (Harbaugh) and Trent (Baalke) want to see if he can play," York said about Moss, according to the Bay Area News Group. "We need someone to stretch the field. It's up to Jim and Trent to see if maybe it can fit."

Moss has had dialogue with two other teams, and recently visited the Saints. Several other teams expressed interest following an impressive workout with New Orleans.

San Francisco cut ties with Braylon Edwards in December and has only two receivers under contract -- Michael Crabtree and Kyle Williams. The 49ers are reportedly trying to re-sign Josh Morgan, but Ted Ginn Jr. and Brett Swain are expected to become free agents.
