Report: Darnell Dockett Visiting With 49ers

ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that former Cardinals DL Darnell Dockett has a visit schedule with the 49ers.

Dockett’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, mentioned earlier in the day that his client is drawing “a lot of interest” around the NFL and they “should have his situation resolved by the end of the week,” via the Arizona Republic.

However, Rosenhaus didn’t name any specific teams that are interested in signing Dockett to a contract.

San Francisco could use some depth on their defensive line, so it will be interesting to see if they try to get a deal done in the coming days.

It’s worth mentioning that a return to the Cardinals is still an option.

According to Kent Somers, the Cardinals are believed to have offered Dockett a one-year deal worth a minimum of $2.5 million and could increase to around $4 million through play-time and production incentives.

It obviously won’t hurt for Dockett to meet with teams this week and see if he can best that offer.

Dockett, 33, sustained a torn ACL and MCL that he sustained during a preseason practice back in August.

In 2013, Dockett recorded 46 tackles and 4.5 sacks over the course of 16 games for the Cardinals. That year, Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 30 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 45 qualifying players.
