Report: 49ers worked out Shawne Merriman

According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, the San Francisco 49ers worked out free agent linebacker Shawne Merriman on Wednesday, but ended up signing Eric Bakhtiari while Clark Haggans serves his three game suspension.

I’m not shocked at least one team has no taken a look at Merrman.  I’m sure others have spoken to him as well, but I can’t imagine him getting signed by anyone with his injury history.
