Niners grab safety C.J. Spillman off waivers

The 0-5 49ers used their priority standing on the waiver wire to claim safety C.J. Spillman off waivers from the San Diego Chargers, Adam Caplan of reports.

A second-year undrafted free agent from Marshall, the 6-0, 190-pound Spillman totaled 13 tackles in five games, including one start, as a rookie and has a team-high six special teams tackles through five games in 2010.

Spillman was likely scapegoated for multiple special teams breakdowns the Chargers have had this season, including a 46-yard punt return by Oakland’s Nick Miller in Sunday’s 35-27 loss to the Raiders.
