Career over

Looks like CB will be our 1rst round pick
What a piece of s**t. Do we really want somebody who hits a cyclist with his car, flees the scene, then threatens a witness with brass knuckles to represent the 49ers? Release him. I don't like rooting for scum bags. I don't care if he is good on the field. Between this and his homophobic comments, I don't want to root for this guy anymore. Replace him with someone else.
