Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL told 95.7 The Game in San Francisco that the 49ers are “working on” bringing back safety Jimmie Ward.

The Mobile native officially becomes a free agent Wednesday. Agents for free agents could begin listening to offers from other teams Monday.

The 49ers signed defensive end Arik Armstead to a new deal Monday which might clear up some salary cap space. San Francisco entered the week with $13 million in cap space.

Ward is coming off the best season of his five-year NFL career and is expected to receive a multi-year contract worth about seven million-dollars a year.
