CB Shawntae Spencer Released by the Niners

The 49ers have released veteran cornerback Shawntae Spencer.

A second-round pick out of Pittsburgh in 2004, Spencer has started 72 of 98 games over the last eight seasons, totaling 345 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 11 interceptions with 53 passes defensed.

Spencer, 30, appeared in just nine games in 2011 and was due $3.3 million in base salary and workout bonus in 2012, the final year of his current contract. By releasing Spencer, the 49ers will save $3.3 million in cap space.

The 49ers re-signed starting cornerback Carlos Rogers to a four-year, $29.3 million contract earlier this week.
