Opening day of the 49ers' offseason workout program will be April 15, a day before the regular-season schedule is unveiled for the reigning NFC champions.

The 49ers' lone, mandatory minicamp will be June 11-13 to conclude the nine-week offseason program, the NFL announced Thursday. Organized team activities will take place May 21-23, May 28-30 and June 3-6.

None of the offseason workouts are expected to be open to the public at the 49ers' Santa Clara facility.

The league is slated to announce the regular-season schedule on April 16. This will be the 49ers' 43rd and final season playing at Candlestick Park, assuming their new stadium in Santa Clara remains on track to open in 2014.

Aside from their NFC West rivals -- Arizona, Seattle and St. Louis -- the 49ers will host Atlanta, Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis and Green Bay. The 49ers' road schedule features trips to Arizona, Seattle, St. Louis, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Tennessee, Washington and Jacksonville (in London on Oct. 27).

  • Quarterback Pat White, who hasn't played in the league since his 2009 rookie season with Miami, worked out Thursday at the 49ers' facility, as first reported by CSN Bay Area.

    After being released by the Raiders last week as part of a salary-cap purge, Huff signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Super Bowl champions Thursday. He's expected to replace Reed, who signed with Houston last week after an 11-year run with Baltimore.

    "Ed is one of the greatest free safeties to ever play this game, a first-ballot Hall of Famer. For me, it's almost like I'm following in his footsteps," Huff, 30, said. "At this point in my career, it's not chasing money. It's chasing that Super Bowl ring."

    Chiefs: Kansas City hired Brad Childress, who spent last season as Cleveland's offensive coordinator, as spread game analyst. Childress spent five years (2006-10) as Minnesota's coach. From 1999-2005 he was in Philadelphia, where he worked under new Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

    Seahawks: Seattle and former Miami defensive lineman Tony McDaniel agreed to a one-year deal.
