SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers are keeping Kassim Osgood's special-teams prowess on the payroll.
Osgood re-signed Monday on a one-year deal worth the $955,000 minimum salary for the 11-year veteran. He joined the 49ers last June and was a key member of their special-teams units, as well as a reserve wideout.
Other free agents who've re-signed with the 49ers this month are wide receiver Anquan Boldin, kicker Phil Dawson and cornerback Eric Wright. While extensions have been awarded to fullback Bruce Miller and offensive lineman Dan Kilgore, crafting one for quarterback Colin Kaepernick is a "high priority," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area at the NFL owners' meetings.
Osgood's 2013 highs included a blocked punt that sparked a Dec. 8 win over the Seattle Seahawks and a fumble-recovery touchdown of a muffed punt to seal an Oct. 20 win at Tennessee. In a Nov. 17 loss at New Orleans, he committed a fair-catch penalty that preceded the New Orleans Saints' winning drive.
Osgood caught the only pass targeted for him in the regular season: a 17-yard reception in the home finale against Atlanta.
The 49ers' remaining free agents are center Jonathan Goodwin, cornerbacks Carlos Rogers and Perrish Cox and quarterback Colt McCoy.
