The 49ers are reportedly scheduled to work out veteran pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil, who remains a free agent after appearing in eight games last season with the Baltimore Ravens.
Dumervil, 33, is among a group of players scheduled to work out for the 49ers in the next couple days, reports ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
Dumervil has 99 sacks in his 10 seasons with Denver and Baltimore. He tied his career-high with 17 sacks for Baltimore in 2014. His production dropped off to six sacks in 2015. He appeared in eight games last season after returning from offseason foot surgery.
The 49ers on Thursday signed free-agent cornerback Will Davis after a round of visits with veteran defensive backs, including Jairus Byrd and Leon Hall.
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh on Wednesday said coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are always trying to improve the team, regardless of the position.
“I think Kyle and John Lynch do an unbelievable job,” Saleh said. “They’re always looking outside. But, just because a tryout happens doesn’t mean we are necessarily looking for something.”
Dumervil (5 foot 11, 250) would likely play the “Leo” pass-rush end position, where the 49ers’ current depth chart includes Arik Armstead, Aaron Lynch and rookie Pita Taumoepenu.
