CB James to visit Monday

Free-agent cornerback Will James will visit the 49ers on Monday, according to his agent. James, 30, also has visited the Seahawks and Bears, and the Cardinals also are interested. James (6-0, 200) started 14 games last year for the Lions, finishing with 73 tackles, 14 pass defenses and two interceptions, one of which was returned 38 yards for a touchdown.

The 49ers took a cornerback -- Phillip Adams -- in the draft, but it wasn't until the seventh round. The team had three free-agent cornerbacks at the end of the 2009 season. One of them, Marcus Hudson, signed with the Panthers. Dre Bly and Walt Harris remain unsigned. The team also picked up Karl Paymah and Keith Smith.
