Spillman and Daniel Kilgore are future starters.  This means they may not end up working on a new contract for both safety Dashon Goldson and center Jonathan Goodwin. “Two big reasons why we hear the 49ers don’t appear to be in a great rush to re-sign FS Dashon Goldson and C Jonathan Goodwin, both of whom are entering their contract years, are the backups behind them — C.J. Spillman and Daniel Kilgore, respectively. Team sources tell us both Spillman and Kilgore are considered future starters,” wrote PFW. Goldson will be a free agent after this season and Goodwin still has another year left on his current deal.  It will be interesting to see how everything plays out.
