According to a report early Saturday from NFL.com's Mike Garafolo, DT Earli Mitchell will make a visit with the 49ers.
Earl Mitchell was released earlier this week from the Miami Dolphins. The 29 year old spent the past three seasons with the Dolphins, after four years with the Texans. This past season, he had 18 tackles, while starting in five games.
He was expected to a be big part of the defensive line, alongside DT Ndamukong Suh, but he didn't live up to the potential.
Garafolo tweeted later as to why the 49ers are going after him:
I think he could be a decent pick up at the right price. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan will not leave any stones un-turned in their pursuit of reuilding this team.
