C.J. Spillman, Adam Snyder among 19 cut as San Francisco 49ers set 53-man roster


The San Francisco 49ers released 19 players Saturday to cut their roster to 53 men, according to 49ers.com.

Some players were pretty easy decisions to cut, however, players like C.J. Spillman and Adam Snyder came as a shock. Spillman does clear $1.225 million in cap space so there is a chance a player like Alex Boone or Michael Crabtree could receive some extra cash coming their way.

The full list of cuts is below:

T Carter Bykowski
TE Asante Cleveland
WR Lance Lewis
LS Kevin McDermott
CB Darryl Morris
G Al Netter
DL Lawrence Okoye
WR Kassim Osgood
T Michael Philipp
NT Mike Purcell
G Ryan Seymour
LB Shayne Skov
RB Alfonso Smith
G Adam Snyder
S C.J. Spillman
LB Chase Thomas
S  Bubba Ventrone
WR  L’Damian Washington
RB Glenn Winston

Some of these players could make the practice roster if they clear waivers.

Aldon Smith has been placed on the reserve/suspended list and Kenneth Acker and Will Tukuafu have been placed on the injured reserved list.
