The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have released TE Bruce Miller following his arrest for assault at a Fisherman's Wharf hotel in San Francisco yesterday.


Miller reportedly tried to check into the Marriott Hotel but was told there were no rooms available. He later returned and reportedly assaulted a guest and his father after the guest answered the door to his hotel room and told the 49ers tight end that he had the wrong room.

After Miller fled the scene, the guest and his father were transported to the hospital due to the injuries that they had sustained.


The charges against Miller, whom police say was intoxicated, include aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats, and battery, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.


Earlier today, the 49ers released a brief statement on the arrest. "The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the media report regarding Bruce Miller," said the 49ers. "We are gathering the relevant facts of this matter and will continue to monitor the situation."

John Lynch, 49ers exploring options following Dre Greenlaw's injury

Losing Dre Greenlaw during the Super Bowl was a blow to the San Francisco 49ers, not just because of his on-field impact but also for the leadership he brings to the defense. "Dre's the heartbeat of our defense, him and [LB] Fred [Warner] in there, and how they feed off each other," tight end George Kittle said after the Super Bowl loss. "... We lose a guy like Dre, it's tough. He's just such a fantastic football player, and he's everything that the Niners stand for." Greenlaw tore his Achilles in the second quarter of the game, a devastating outcome for a player who battled through multiple injuries during the season, ranging from ankle, hamstring, shoulder, and hip issues.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced the release of veteran cornerback Isaiah Oliver. While he initially saw significant defensive snaps early in the 2023 season, his playing time dwindled during the latter half of the schedule. Notably, Oliver did not take a single defensive snap throughout the 49ers' three playoff games, being utilized exclusively on special teams. He spent only one season with San Francisco. The move saves the 49ers $2.4 million in salary cap space while creating $1.46 million in dead money, per OverTheCap.com. 49ers Communications provided the following rundown. Oliver (6-0, 202) originally signed with the 49ers on March 15, 2023. In 2023, he appeared in 17 games (six starts) and

But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
