SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the situation says wide receiver Randy Moss will work out Monday for the San Francisco 49ers.

Moss is attempting to make an NFL comeback after a year out of pro football. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday night because it wasn't made public that the veteran wideout would hold a session for the NFC West champion Niners a day before the start of the free agency period.

ESPN first reported the scheduled workout on Sunday.

The 35-year-old Moss, who worked out last Tuesday with the New Orleans Saints, played for New England, Minnesota and Tennessee in a rocky 2010 season. He could help fill a big void after 49ers receivers managed just one catch for 3 yards in a 20-17 loss in the NFC championship game to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants at Candlestick Park on Jan. 22.
