Mosley: Niners Looking at Trotter
The 49ers visited with veteran linebacker Jeremiah Trotter this week. The team did not immediately sign Trotter, whose size could conceivably help a team beef up against the run on a situational basis. Trotter, 31, played more than 70 percent of the snaps for Philadelphia in 2006, but he started only one game for Tampa Bay last season. The NFL lists Trotter at 262 pounds, or about 13 pounds less than newly signed 49ers pass rusher Justin Smith.
