Editor's note: 49ers Insider Matt Maiocco is at the NFL owners meetings in Arizona this week.
PHOENIX -- Free-agent inside linebacker Erin Henderson, who was out of the NFL last season, reportedly has a visit scheduled with the 49ers this week as he attempts a comeback.
Henderson held a private workout Sunday in Arizona with NFL teams, and the 49ers arranged for a visit, reports ESPN’s Josina Anderson. Coach Jim Tomsula and general manager Trent Baalke are scheduled to return to Santa Clara from the NFL owners meetings on Wednesday afternoon.
Henderson, 28, is a six-year NFL veteran whom the Minnesota Vikings released in February 2014 season after he was twice arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence during a six-week span. The NFL suspended Henderson for four games to start last season, and he went unsigned for the remainder of the season.
Henderson originally signed with the Vikings as an undrafted rookie from Maryland in 2008. He started 33 games in his last three seasons.
The 49ers depth chart has been altered at inside linebacker the past two weeks with Patrick Willis and Chris Borland opting to end their football careers. NaVorro Bowman and Michael Wilhoite are projected as the team’s starters at inside linebacker.
