The San Francisco 49ers are likely going to have Bruce Miller back for OTAs later this week, according to his agent. The 49ers had a pair of OTAs on Monday and Tuesday, and have two more on Thursday and Friday. They then have their mandatory minicamp next week.

This news comes following Tuesday afternoon's report that Miller plead no contest to a disturbing the peace charge. Miller was arrested and charged with spousal abuse earlier in the offseason. The DA eventually filed a vandalism charge, and it was further reduced to the disturbing the peace charge.

Following the arrest, general manager Trent Baalke said that the team and Miller had agreed that he would stay away from the team's facilities until his legal matter was resolved. It appears the situation is far enough along that the team is ready to welcome him back. Miller's plea includes a 16-week domestic violence counseling course, followed by formal sentencing in six months. He could face up to 90 days in jail and/or a $400 fine. If he completes the course and stays out of trouble, my guess is he will not get jail time.
