After his tryout, kicker Billy Cundiff reached an agreement
with the San Francisco 49ers and has been placed on the 53-man roster, reports
Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
The 49ers on Tuesday signed veteran kicker Billy Cundiff after
he took part in a tryout at the team's practice facility in Santa Clara, a
league source told CSNBayArea.com.
San Francisco waived linebacker Eric Bakhtiari to make room
for the signing, meaning the team will carry two kickers on its 53-man roster,
Cundiff and David Akers. Coach Jim Harbaugh has suggested that the team could
have Akers and Cundiff compete through the week to see who starts when their
playoff games begin.
Cundiff has spent parts of nine seasons in the NFL, kicking
for the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens
and Washington Redskins. After being cut by the Ravens in training camp,
Cundiff was picked up by the Redskins. The 32-year-old was eventually released
by Washington after making only seven of his 12 field goal attempts to start
