Free agent safety Charles Woodson is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers in the Bay Area on Wednesday.

Agent Carl Poston confirmed the meeting. Woodson, released by Green Bay on Feb. 15 with two years remaining on his contract, has one important thing in common with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh: They're former Michigan stars.

As safety Dashon Goldson makes the rounds and weighs his options in free agency, the NFC champion Niners clearly are preparing in case he leaves.

Woodson is familiar with Northern California, too. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Oakland Raiders, who selected him No. 4 overall in the 1998 draft. Woodson hopes to play for a contender.

Also Wednesday, defensive end Glenn Dorsey was meeting with the 49ers.
