The two most prominent teams at Jared Goff’s pro day earlier this month aren’t finished inspecting the Cal quarterback.

According to Fox Sports, Goff will work out for the 49ers and Cleveland Browns later this week. Cleveland has the second pick in the draft; the 49ers pick seventh.

The 49ers sent a large contingent of coaches, including coach Chip Kelly and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day, to Berkeley on March 18. Goff completed 61 of 69 scripted passes in the session. The 49ers will return to Berkeley for the upcoming workout, which is believed to be Wednesday.

The 49ers are in the market for a quarterback because one of their 2015 starters, Blaine Gabbert, will be a free agent next year and the other, Colin Kaepernick, is seeking a trade.

If Kaepernick is on the 49ers’ roster after 1 p.m. Thursday, his $11.9 million salary for this season becomes guaranteed. The 49ers have insisted for weeks he will remain on the roster beyond this date. They likely couldn’t avoid paying his guarantee anyway because he still is recovering from injuries suffered last season and would not be able to pass a physical.

The Browns sent coach Hue Jackson and senior offensive assistant Pep Hamilton to Cal’s pro day to observe Goff. They signed former Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III last week, but they still are expected to draft a quarterback.

The 49ers also have scheduled workouts with Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook, expected to be selected at the end of the first round or the beginning of the second, and North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz, who might be the first quarterback selected. The session with Wentz will be in Fargo, N.D.
