Free Agent TE Becht Visits 49ers

Posted by Taylor Price on March 9, 2010 – 5:35 PM

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.”

    He’s a good player and no discredit to Becht, but this is by no means a position of need. Vernon Davis was the best TE in the NFL last year and is a perfect fit in our system. Singletary said himself that Vernon Davis is the best blocking TE he’s ever seen. Delanie Would start at TE on 12 NFL teams if present there. If we sign him, more power to him. He may be a better blocker than Delanie Walker, but in my opinion TE and Inside LB are the only positions on the team that absolutely do not need to be addressed this year.

    I think to not look at such a good talent would be foolhardy.First i think becht would be a better complement to davis then walker and a more seasoned and better blocker to help jump start a disappointing running game last year.I think becht would not only be a good pick up but a exceptional move in the right direction.Tell me who fears walker at TE,i know people would have to at least give a pause to Becht ,opening up more time for davis to exploite them .9ers fan in indy GO 9ERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
