Free agent DB C.J. Spillman has been charged with sexual assault in Tarrant County, Tex.

Spillman was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Cowboys' team hotel on September 20 last year, and the judge finally handed down the paperwork on Monday. The Cowboys continued to let Spillman, a special teams ace, play, as he appeared in all 16 games. This isn't 29-year-old Spillman's first sexually-charged wrongdoing, as he was accused of rape back in 2013.

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

Spillman, 27, played just 32 snaps on defense last season, but is a special teams stalwart. The Niners like to use Spillman in goal-line situations, but first-rounder Eric Reid is fully expected to earn the starting free safety job.

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

Goldson already has one foot out the door. Spillman is a thumper that has been used in goal-line situations, while McBath is a restricted free agent that is better in coverage. The Niners could also address the position in the draft with one of their 15 picks.

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."

49ers re-signed S C.J. Spillman to a three-year, $6 million contract.

The deal contains $1.8 million guaranteed. The Niners skipped over Spillman's restricted free agency to get him under contract through 2014.

49ers extended S C.J. Spillman an extensive rights free agent tender.

Spillman racked up an 17 tackles in kickoff and punt coverage in 13 special teams appearances last season. That sort of production wins roster spots, even for defensive backs like Spillman who lack value at safety or corner.
