49ers signed LB Tarvares Gooden to a one-year contract.
Gooden got lost in the shuffle in Baltimore with Jameel McClain and Dannell Ellerbe earning larger roles, but Niners coach Jim Harbaugh must have gotten a good report from his brother John. Gooden will likely back up first-year starter Navorro Bowman while pitching in on special teams.

Ravens waived LB Tavares Gooden.
The Ravens were hoping to find a trade partner for Gooden after he declined to take a pay cut, but were unsuccessful. Gooden appeared in just 10 games last season, making zero starts, after starting 12 games in 2009. He has 70 tackles in 26 career games.
