Emmanuel Moseley won't be going anywhere in free agency, as the 49ers and the cornerback reached an agreement on a two-year contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported citing league sources.

Moseley played 12 games for the 49ers in 2020, with eight starts. He led the 49ers with nine pass deflections despite missing four games, and finished with 38 solo tackles and one interception.

At nearly 25 years old, Moseley offers some upside and has been a reliable defensive back for the 49ers over his three seasons in the Bay Area.

He earned a 58.3 overall grade from Pro Football Focus in 2020, slightly down from his 70.0 overall mark in 2019. Most of the 49ers' defensive grades suffered last season due to the unrelenting wave of injuries that overtook the roster.

Moseley was one of four potential free agents from the 49ers' secondary, and will provide some important continuity should Richard Sherman, Ahkello Witherspoon or Jason Verrett end up taking their talents elsewhere.
