The San Francisco 49ers aren't wasting any time when it comes to re-signing key personel as it was announced on Friday that the team and restricted free agent defensive back C.J. Spillman have come to terms on a new three-year contract worth $6 million according to CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Spillman made 18 tackles for San Francisco in 2011, but was also one of the best special-teams players on the team Spillman's role as a backup safety is also very important as well, as he shined as part of the 49ers' goal-line package last season.
Spillman's tackle of Baltimore's Ray Rice during their Thanksgiving day meeting with the Niners was easily his best of the year, pushing Rice back for a 4-yard loss on a second-and-goal from the 1-yard line. The play continued the then streak of no rushing touchdowns allowed by the 49ers.
