Mar 5, 2015 at 6:55 AM


According to his agent Drew Rosenhaus, defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has agreed to a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

The deal for the 33-year old is worth $7.5 million with $4 million in the first year and $2 million in guaranteed money.

Dockett, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals last week in a cap saving move, visited with the San Francisco 49ers this week. FOX Sports' Mike Jurecki stated yesterday that 49ers players were reaching out to Dockett and lobbying to bring him to the Bay Area.

Dockett has amassed 459 tackles, 40.5 sacks, four interceptions and seven forced fumbles during his career.

Docket was entering the final year of his contract with the Cardinals and was due to make $6.55 million. The Cardinals were trying to bring him back at a lower cost and even offered him a one-year $2.5 million deal with a chance to earn up to $4 million, but he chose the NFC West rival 49ers instead.
