49ERS Cundiff signed SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco 49ers signed kicker Billy Cundiff on Tuesday to compete with struggling veteran David Akers. “He’s thrilled with the opportunity to be in a position to help the team in any way he can this postseason,” said Cundiff’s agent, Paul Sheehy. The team announced the move a day after Coach Jim Harbaugh said that the NFC West champion Niners (11-4-1 ) — off this week as the NFC’s No. 2 seed — planned to try out kickers because of Akers’ prolonged funk. Cundiff was released by the Washington Redskins on Oct. 9 after missing 5 of his 12 field-goal attempts.
