Anthony Becht, a 10-year veteran who has played for four NFL franchises most recently the Arizona Cardinals, met with 49ers officials on Tuesday.
Becht spoke with head coach Mike Singletary and others to offer his services to the 49ers.
“The need is for a blocking tight end, that’s what my skill-set is,” Becht said during an informal interview with several Bay Area reporters. “I can still catch; I can still run and do all those things.”
Becht said he plans to “bring a dominating attitude to the edge,” but also give “leeway to the other tight ends.”
After battling the 49ers in divisional games last season, Becht has been familiarized with the 49ers personnel.
“They’re improving. They’re an aggressive team and obviously Coach Singletary brings that attitude, it translates well for their players on the field. They’re definitely up and coming and taking the proper steps where it needs to be. I think they’re going to continue to have success and Coach Singletary will do a good job for them.”
