The Sacramento Bee pegs C.J. Spillman and Darcel McBath as candidates to replace free agent FS Dashon Goldson.

49ers SS C.J. Spillman has been working with the first-team defense during Organized Team Activities.

Spillman is primarily a special teamer, but could be used as a complement to Donte Whitner on passing downs. "We’ve had time to have a full spring with him," DB coach Ed Donatell said. "He’s more mature as a professional, he’s done a great job with our special teams and he's looking to increase his role."
