The 49ers made official roster moves on Saturday to get to the 53 man roster limit. But on Sunday night, Bruce Miller made some moves that forced the 49ers to make another cut. Bruce was arrested Monday morning for allegedly assaulting 2 men, one of them being 70 years old, in a Fisherman’s Wharf hotel. The 49ers made the decision to release him later in the day.

Bruce was an important part of the team as a fullback, but his role was to change this season. The coaching staff tried to convert him into a tight end and he won a job on the 53 man roster. But this latest arrest cost him his job. He was also arrested last year in a domestic violence charge against his then fiancee. This adds to the list of legal troubles the 49ers have had in the last few years.

In other roster news, the 49ers latest Team ACL draft pick, Will Redmond, will start his career on the injured reserve. Another member of that group, DeAndre Smelter, was waived with a injury settlement. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2015 draft. He entered the league recovering from an ACL tear and did not play as a rookie. He was waived without ever playing a down in the NFL. Trent Baalke’s experiment with drafting players with ACL injuries has not panned out at all.
