Backup TE Billy Bajema signed his tender to remain with the San Francisco 49ers .
Tight end Billy Bajema signed his one-year, $927,000 tender as a restricted free agent to remain with the 49ers.
Bajema, 25, is a three-year veteran and was eligible to negotiate with other teams. If he had signed with another team, the 49ers would have had the opportunity to match the offer sheet to retain his services. They would have received a seventh-round draft pick as compensation if they declined to match. (He was a seventh-round pick in 2005.)
Bajema did not take any visits during the signing period. He is a blocking specialist who has not caught a pass since his rookie season, when he hauled in five receptions for 54 yards. Bajema was the 49ers’ only restricted free agent. They declined to tender cornerback B.J. Tucker, who spent the season on injured reserve.
