SAN FRANCISCO - Veteran special teams standout and wide receiver Kassim Osgood signed a new one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday.

In keeping Osgood, the 49ers have retained a key member of their special teams unit for coach Brad Seely. Place kicker Phil Dawson received a two-year contract March 12, one of coach Jim Harbaugh's top off-season priorities.

Still on the to-do list for general manager Trent Baalke and Harbaugh: Trying to reach a contract extension with quarterback Colin Kaepernick for the long haul.

"The priority is that Colin Kaepernick is a San Francisco 49er for however long we can have him be a San Francisco 49er," Harbaugh told reporters at Monday's NFL meetings in Orlando, Fla. "So it's definitely a high priority. He's an amazing individual, an amazing player."

In his first season with San Francisco last year, the 33-year-old Osgood had 12 special teams tackles by the 49ers' count, a fumble recovery, his first career blocked punt against the Seahawks in Week 14, and a touchdown. He recovered a muffed punt in the end zone in a win at Tennessee on Oct. 20 for his first fumble recovery for a touchdown.

An 11-year NFL veteran, Osgood played in 14 regular-season games for the 49ers and also had one catch for 17 yards playing a limited role in the deep 49ers receiving corps.

He appeared in all three playoff games for the Niners, who lost in the NFC championship game to eventual Super Bowl champion and division rival Seattle.

During his career with San Diego, Jacksonville, Detroit and San Francisco, Osgood has 45 receptions for 766 yards and five touchdowns. He has also recorded 134 tackles, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one blocked punt and one touchdown on special teams.
