C.J. Spillman is listed as the 49ers' starting free safety on the team's initial unofficial depth chart.

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."
