The San Francisco 49ers are undisputed as one of the best teams in the NFL, they have a very few weaknesses and a young quarterback who has already guided the team to a Super Bowl and they could be the team to dethrone the Seattle Seahawks in 2014.

However, to do that, Jim Harbaugh will be looking to improve his secondary which allowed over 3,500 yards last season. Former Denver Broncos' cornerback, Champ Bailey appears to be the front runner at the moment with years of experience which could help Harbaugh's championship-chasing team.

Bailey was released by the Broncos this offseason after being part of the Denver defense that crumbled against the Seahawks during their Super Bowl defeat.

The veteran's lack of performance against the Niner's biggest rival might be a concern but Kevin Lynch of thinks Bailey can still be productive:

"The future Hall of Fame player missed 5 games with a foot injury last year, and his agent said he probably should have missed the season. Even with the injury, Bailey was decent for most of the season." 

Whether the 49ers will actually make a move for the 35-year old remains to be seen but for Bailey, with only one Super Bowl appearance in his career would love an opportunity to join a contender for the last days of his career.
