Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 49ers are signing veteran C Tim Barnes to a contract on Monday.
Barnes actually tried out for the 49ers last week, so he was clearly on their radar as a potential addition.
Barnes, 28, originally signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri back in 2011. He played out a number of one-year contracts before signing a two-year agreement with the Rams last year.
In 2016, Barnes appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 31 overall center out of 38 qualifying players.
We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
