CB Paymah to visit Wednesday

The 49ers will host another free-agent cornerback when Karl Paymah, most recently of the Denver Broncos, pays them a visit Wednesday. Paymah, 26, has been a popular guy of late. He visited the Ravens last week. He was in Tampa Bay today and will meet the Browns tomorrow. Another cornerback, Cardinals free agent Eric Green, was in Santa Clara on Friday. Green also has several suitors.

Paymah (6-0, 195) ran a 4.35 40 at the 2005 combine and was a third-round pick by the Broncos that year. His best season was 2007 when he beat out Dominique Foxworth for the role of nickel cornerback and started three games. Like the rest of the Broncos defense, Paymah struggled last season and the Denver pass defense finished 26th in the league.

According to Paymah's agent, Paymah specializes in press coverage. If you'll recall, the 49ers drafted Reggie Smith in the third round last season to be a physical corner who plays close to the line of scrimmage. The 49ers are looking for an heir to Walt Harris, who turns 35 in August.
