Linebacker Eric Bakhtiari, who took part in the 49ers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, will be offered a contract by the team, his agent said Monday. Bakhtiari played under Jim Harbaugh at the University of San Diego, and he also spent time on the 49ers' practice squad in 2009.
Bakhtiari, who is 6-3, 250 pounds and who is from Burlingame/San Mateo, has bounced among several NFL teams over the last few years, and he played three games for the Titans in 2009. That experience appeared to give him an advantage among the rookies in Friday's practices, and he looked comfortable and assignment-sound on the field. He also took advantage of hamstring injuries suffered by rookie outside linebackers Darius Fleming and Kourtnei Brown.
The 49ers were at the 90-man allotment for the offseason, meaning that any tryout players they sign will have to be offset by cutting other players.
