Former North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, who was not selected in last week’s supplemental draft, worked out Tuesday for the 49ers at their Santa Clara practice facility.

A source said Lipford had a good workout but the 49ers did not sign him on Tuesday. The 49ers are at their 90-player limit with rookies scheduled to report to camp on Wednesday. The full squad is scheduled to report on July 23.

Lipford (6 foot 3, 245 pounds) missed the entire 2012 season due to an ACL tear in his left knee in North Carolina’s Independence Bowl game loss to Missouri. He returned last season to record 2 ½ sacks and six tackles for loss.
