The San Francisco 49ers re-signed slot cornerback K’Waun Williams to a one-year deal, NFL Network reported Wednesday.
Williams, 29, reportedly visited with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday.
He started four of his eight games with the 49ers in 2020, tallying 22 tackles, two sacks and four passes defensed. He missed eight games with ankle and shin injuries.
Williams has played in 77 games (38 starts) with the Cleveland Browns (2014-15) and San Francisco (2017-20). He has 249 tackles, three interceptions, six sacks, 10 forced fumbles and 23 passes defensed.

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman and cornerback K’Waun Williams were activated off injured reserve and will be available to play in the team’s road game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
The 49ers also announced on Saturday that they placed running back Jeff Wilson Jr. on injured reserve. Wilson, who is nursing a high-ankle sprain, will sit out at least the next three games.
Coleman’s return comes at an opportune time with both Wilson and fellow running back Raheem Mostert nursing injuries.
The 27-year-old Coleman, who will join Jerick McKinnon and rookie JaMycal Hasty as options in the backfield on Sunday, sustained a knee injury during San Francisco’s 31-13 victory over the New York Jets on Sept. 20.
Coleman has rushed 18 times for 30 yards and has three catches for 34 yards this season for the 49ers (4-3). He gained 724 yards from scrimmage and scored seven TDs in his first season with San Francisco in 2019.
Williams is returning to action after being sidelined with both knee and hip injuries.
The 29-year-old has recorded 12 tackles in four games (two starts) this season. He has collected 239 tackles, four sacks and three interceptions in 73 career games (36 starts) with the Cleveland Browns and 49ers.
Also on Saturday, the 49ers activated wide receiver River Cracraft and safety Johnathan Cyprien from the practice squad and downgraded wideout Richie James Jr. (ankle) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (groin) from doubtful to out against the Seahawks (5-1).
Defensive lineman Kentavius Street (illness) was also downgraded from questionable to doubtful for Sunday’s game.
