Mitchell, 29, spent the past three seasons with the Miami Dolphins, playing in nine games in 2016 before he was cut last week.

Former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Earl Mitchell plans to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Mike Garafolo first reported the defensive tackle signing with the Niners.

The veteran will make $5.5 million during his first year with the 49ers, which is actually a raise over the $4 million he would've made in Miami if that Dolphins hadn't cut him on February 16.

The fit was right, but the money was bigger in San Francisco.

Mitchell was drafted by Houston in the third round in 2010 and played four seasons for the Texans.

In 100 career games, Mitchell - considered more of a run-stopper than a pass rusher - has 5.5 sacks.

While the fingers are crossed that Williams can regain what he had with the Browns two years ago, Mitchell is expected to be a significant part of new defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's line after signing that kind of deal.

So Mitchell's transition should be relatively seamless. Mitchell's free agent tour include stops in Seattle, Denver, Atlanta and San Francisco.

While the jury remains out on moves like these, it is refreshing to see a proactive presence, unearthing every rock available to improve what is one of the NFL's worst rosters. Although the 49ers could stand an upgrade at the position.

He then signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Dolphins but got released with one year remaining on the contract. Through free agency (which begins on March 9) and the National Football League draft (which begins April 27), the Broncos are expected to add at least one more defensive end and two defensive tackles.

And that's exactly what the Niners need.
