Deuce Lutui took hold of the starting right guard job for the Arizona Cardinals in his rookie year of 2006, but lost the gig in 2011 after reporting to training camp overweight. With very little momentum heading into free agency this offseason, Lutui has seen virtually no interest on the open market.

However, according to's Adam Caplan, the San Francisco 49ers recently worked out the former Arizona Cardinal.

Lutui, who will be 29-years-old in May, must get his conditioning in order prior to once again becoming a full-time starter, but he is a good interior lineman when on his game.

The former second-round draft choice from USC has started 72 games and appeared in 93 over the course of his six-year career.
