As for the mystery cornerbacks visiting the San Francisco 49ers today that we blogged about earlier, it turns out one of them was 10-year veteran Dre Bly. The 49ers moved quickly to replace the injured Walt Harris, signing Bly to a one-year contract on Thursday.

“We lost a Pro Bowl caliber player in Walt Harris this week, and we were able to fill that void today with another Pro Bowler in Dré Bly,” said general manager Scot McCloughan. “We added a player with a passion for the game, tremendous productivity and proven durability who knows what it takes to compete at a high level in the NFL. It was important to get Dré in here quickly so that he can get acquainted with our system, our coaches and his new teammates.”

It’s expected that Bly will compete with Tarell Brown and Shawntae Spencer for the starting spot opposite Nate Clements.
