According to multiple reports, the 49ers and free agent wide receiver Randy Moss agreed to a one-year deal Monday evening. The pact ends Moss' retirement after he spent the 2011 season out of football.
The 35-year-old Moss reportedly spent Monday working out with the 49ers and catching passes from coach Jim Harbaugh. Moss had recently worked out with the Saints.
Moss spent parts of four seasons with the Patriots, including a record-setting 2007 campaign in which he reeled in 23 touchdown receptions. He was traded to the Vikings after four games in the 2010 season, but only lasted four games before he was waived. He finished the season with the Titans after being claimed, but had only six receptions in eight games, the last ones he played before retiring.
The Patriots will host the 49ers this season, meaning Moss will make his first trip back to New England since Oct. 31, 2010, his last game with the Vikings.
Josh Beckett struggled with his command early in his third start of the spring but settled down, allowing just a run on a single hit in four innings for the Sox against the Marlins at JetBlue Park on Monday afternoon.
Beckett hit two batters and walked in a run in the first inning but was sharp in his final three frames, retiring the final nine batters in order. Beckett threw 57 pitches and finished with three strikeouts against two walks.
Andrew Bailey made his spring training debut, allowing a run on three hits in his inning on the hill.
Mike Aviles doubled and tripled in his three plate appearances and Nick Punto, Kelly Shoppach and Cody Ross all drove in runs for the Sox.
Pedro Ciriaco blasted a two-run, walk-off homer off of Alejandro Ramos in the 10th inning to give the Sox a 5-3 victory. The Sox improved to 5-2 in spring training play with the win.

The Bruins recalled forward Trent Whitfield from Providence on an emergency basis Monday. Whitfield joined the team for Monday's practice in Tampa, and will be available for the Bruins Tuesday against the Lightning.
The 34-year-old Whitfield serves as captain of the Providence Bruins. He has five goals and six assists for 11 points in 41 AHL games this season.
The Bruins sent forward Max Sauve, who was injured in Sunday's loss to the Penguins, back to Boston. Patrice Bergeron was also injured Sunday and left the game in the second period, and the team considers him questionable for Tuesday's game.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney left the exhibition game against the Marlins in the top of the third inning due to a left quad strain. He was replaced in the outfield by Che-Hsuan Lin.
An injury to Sweeney would be notable given that the Red Sox are already all but certain to open the year with Carl Crawford on the disabled list. If Sweeney's injury is anything but minor, then the Sox could face something of an outfield depth issue, though the team has Darnell McDonald as a likely member of the major league roster.
More on the Sweeney injury as it becomes available. For complete Red Sox coverage, visit weei.com/redsox.
NESN Bruins analyst Barry Pederson checked in with the Mut & Merloni show Monday to talk about the B's recent struggles
Tim Thomas allowed three goals on 10 shots in the first period of Sunday's loss to the Penguins before being pulled in favor of new backup Marty Turco. Although Thomas' workload has increased since the injury to Tuukka Rask, Pederson said he doesn't believe the 37-year-old is tired.
"I think people are overcomplicating this issue. They're taking the conclusion that because Timmy is maybe not playing to his normal level that he is tired. I don't think it has anything to do with it," Pederson said. "I think it's a situation where the team is playing poorly, for all the reasons that we know, that we've talked about for the last month or so. And of course when you add all the injuries into it, that just complicates things.
"People say Tim Thomas plays well when he doesn't play all the time. Well, I...
