Mitchell, 29, spent the past three seasons with the Miami Dolphins, playing in nine games in 2016 before he was cut last week.
The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have agreed to terms with DT Earl Mitchell on a four-year contract.
Mike Garafolo first reported the defensive tackle signing with the Niners.
National Hockey League trade deadline: Wild meet Coyotes' steep price for Martin Hanzal
For the Coyotes, General Manager John Chayka secured a sizable haul of decent draft choices over the next three years. Hanzal is an excellent player but there's no way around the fact that this is a steep price for Minnesota.
After mostly sitting out free agency last offseason, the Niners beat out Atlanta, Seattle and Denver for Mitchell's services by officially signing him to a four-year $16 million contract on Saturday.
The fit was right, but the money was bigger in San Francisco. In his final season with the Texans, Mitchell played under new 49ers defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina.
One of the main reasons Miami released Mitchell was due to an injury-plagued and underwhelming 2016 season a year ago.

He was broken at the start of the match and again at 3-3 in the second set as Tsonga secured his second title of 2017. Sixth seed Richard Gasquet overcame top seed Gael Monfils in an all-French quarter-final 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-2.
When healthy though, Mitchell is one of the better run-stuffers in the league. He has also played in five career postseason games where he registered 13 tackles and 1.0 sack. But it's his run-stopping abilities that will be most enticing to San Francisco's defense.
The 49ers need help on the interior of the defensive line as they are expected to switch from a three-man to a four-man front under new coordinator Robert Saleh.
So Mitchell's transition should be relatively seamless. It's not a surprising move, considering Dorsey's injury history with the team. Although the 49ers could stand an upgrade at the position.

In fact, the new Xiaomi Mi 6's design appears very similar to the other handset that Xiaomi plans to launch globally, the Mi Mix. The Xiaomi Mi MIX smartphone also features an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, electronic compass, and gyroscope.
Because both Mitchell and Williams were released by their respective teams, their arrivals won't count toward the formula that will determine the 2018 compensatory draft picks. Through free agency (which begins on March 9) and the National Football League draft (which begins April 27), the Broncos are expected to add at least one more defensive end and two defensive tackles.
