    Source: 49ers, Moss agree to deal

    The San Francisco 49ers and receiver Randy Moss have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    Moss worked out for the 49ers on Monday, with coach Jim Harbaugh throwing him passes.

    Harbaugh stood in because a current 49ers quarterback can't throw in a workout for the team until the league year begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.

    "Jim Harbaugh makes #49ers veteran emergency board: Best coach's workout in NFL history (especially while wearing khakis & a sweatshirt)," 49ers CEO Jed York tweeted Monday.

    Moss announced on his 35th birthday that he was ending his one-year retirement from the NFL.

    Moss, who worked out last Tuesday with the New Orleans Saints, played for New England, Minnesota and Tennessee in a rocky 2010 season. He could help fill a big void after 49ers receivers managed just one catch for three yards in a 20-17 overtime loss in the NFC Championship Game to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

    Moss' workout with the Saints was said to be impressive, according to reports. The Saints didn't publicize details of the session.

    San Francisco cut ties with Braylon Edwards in December and already was without Joshua Morgan, who broke a bone in his lower leg Oct. 9 against Tampa Bay, had surgery to have screws inserted and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Morgan is expected to generate his share of interest in free agency.

    Michael Crabtree, San Francisco's 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft, had 72 receptions for 874 yards and four touchdowns.

    York said earlier Monday that the 49ers need "someone to stretch the field."

    The Niners CEO also said the 49ers are working to re-sign the man who could be throwing to Moss next season, quarterback Alex Smith. York said the side have had "good conversations back and forth."

    Moss' 153 touchdown receptions are tied with Terrell Owens for second on the career list. He's fifth all-time in yards and ninth in receptions. His 29 touchdowns of at least 50 yards are behind only Jerry Rice (36).

    He led the NFL in touchdown receptions five times, was selected to the Pro Bowl six times and was named first team All-Pro four times. His 23 TDs in 2007 led the entire NFL and his 138 points scored that season were second only to kicker Mason Crosby.
