Jason Brown is scheduled to visit the 49ers

Veteran free agent center Jason Brown is scheduled to visit the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, a league source confirmed. Cut by the St. Louis Rams, Brown visited the Carolina Panthers earlier during free agency. The Rams abruptly replaced Brown with Tony Wragge at the end of last season despite Brown receiving high blocking grades from the coaching staff.

Brown joined the Rams three years ago when he was signed to a five-year, $37.5 million contract that included $20 million in guaranteed money and made him the highest-paid center in the game.

Under the terms of that deal, he was due a $5 million base salary and carries a $7.2 million salary-cap figure for next season.

He started 46 games in three seasons for the Rams.

A former Baltimore Ravens fourth-round draft pick from North Carolina, Brown, 28, has started 91 career games. The 6-foot-3, 320-pounder has built a strong reputation for his leverage, strength and technique.
