This is the first reported interest in Wilhoite since the free agent market officially opened last week.
Wilhoite, 30, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Washburn back in 2011. He eventually worked his way up to the 53-man roster during the 2012 season and has been playing under one-year contracts for the past three seasons.
Wilhoite is now testing the open market for the first time as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2016, Wilhoite appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 55 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble, a recovery and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 83 linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.
