Safety Tony Jefferson may make his way back on a roster in 2021.
According ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Jefferson is set to visit with the 49ers for a workout and a physical this week.

Prior to the injury, Jefferson had started 35 games for the Ravens since 2017, recording a pair of interceptions, 3.5 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, 11 passes defensed, and two forced fumbles.
Jefferson began his career with Arizona in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma. He appeared in 63 games for the Cardinals with 31 starts, making two interceptions, 11 passes defensed, six forced fumbles, and 5.0 sacks for the franchise.
