Niners free agency: Saturday morning update

Morning, Sunshine! Here's where the 49ers presently stand as far as free agency:

Agreed to terms: FB Moran Norris, KR Allen Rossum, LB Takeo Spikes. None of these guys have actually put their signature on their deals, so it might be a while before the team officially announces the signing.

In the building as of 9:45 a.m.: WR Brandon Jones. Jones, a free agent from Tennessee, had breakfast this morning with Mike Singletary and Scot McCloughan. All signs are pointing to Jones signing a contract later this morning. If he does, we're hoping he stops by the media trailer to say hello. He reportedly has any afternoon flight out of town.

Coming to the building: According to MM, Washington free agent DT-DE Demetric Evans is due for a visit on Monday. The 49ers are eyeing several defensive ends and it's unknown how many of them they'd like to snag. Does this mean that Isaac Sopoaga and/or Kentwan Balmer will see time at nose tackle?

Showing interest in: DE Chris Canty is due for a visit next week. He would be the highest-rated of all the free agents discussed thus far. However, the Giants or Seattle could make him an offer he can't refuse. The team also is looking at Denver free agent DT-DE Kenny Peterson and Cowboys free agent TE Tony Curtis.

Not flying to Phoenix Sky Harbor to pow wow with QB Kurt Warner: Mike Singletary and Scot McCloughan.
