For the San Francisco 49ers in 2011, perhaps the most significant free agent acquisition was kicker David Akers.

He booted his way to a 166-point NFL single-season record for most points scored without a touchdown. His 44 made field goals qualified as another all-time league mark.

Akers’ 49er teammates, coaches and fans in San Francisco and beyond, certainly appreciated his contributions to 43.7 percent of the team’s 2011-point total.
