Wide receiver Ted Ginn, who spent three seasons with the 49ers as a wide receiver and return man, is reportedly expected to visit the club on Wednesday as a free agent.
Ginn, who turns 30 in April, caught just 14 passes in 16 games last season with the Arizona Cardinals, and was released last week to clear $2.5 million in cap space. He averaged 10.7 yards on 26 punt returns with a touchdown. On kickoffs, he averaged a career-low 19.0 yards on 22 returns.
Ginn was a return specialist with the 49ers from 2010 to ’12. He caught just 33 passes in three seasons. In his final season with the 49ers, he caught just two passes for 1 yard in 13 games. He had three touchdowns on returns in his three seasons.
Ginn visited the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday and is expected to visit Santa Clara to meet with the 49ers, ESPN reported.
The 49ers on Tuesday met with free-agent defensive lineman Darnell Dockett, a league source told CSNBayArea.com. The Cardinals also recently released Dockett.
The free-agent negotiating period is scheduled to begin on March 7. But players who are released before the start of the new league year are eligible to sign with other teams at any time.
