Former Rams standout safety Craig Dahl has been released by the 49ers, a source has told csnbayarea.com.
Dahl played in all 16 games last year for San Francisco. He contributed to 23 tackles.
49ers safety Craig Dahl took a pay cut to remain with the 49ers, according to NFLPA figures. Dahl was originally scheduled to make $1.7 million in 2015. His restructured deal is for $1.3 million.
Safety Craig Dahl agreed to a pay cut that creates $600,000 in cap space for the 49ers, reports CSNBayArea.com. Dahl still could compete for a starting job if Donte Whitner leaves via free agency.
49ers cornerback Tarell Brown (ribs), wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (ankle), safety Craig Dahl (ankle), running back Frank Gore (ankle), defensive tackle Ray McDonald (ankle), linebacker Dan Skuta (foot), linebacker Aldon Smith (shoulder), defensive lineman Justin Smith (shoulder), guard Adam Snyder (not injury related) and tackle Joe Staley (knee) were all cleared to play Week 15 at Tampa Bay. Every player was listed as probable except Brown and Manningham, who were questionable.
The 49ers have listed WR Jon Baldwin, S Craig Dahl, DT Ray McDonald, LB Dan Skuta, LB Aldon Smith, DT Justin Smith, OL Adam Snyder and OL Joe Staley as probable Week 15.
Both Aldon and Justin Smith are dealing with shoulder injuries. Snyder is listed as a "non-injury" on the report.
The 49ers signed defensive back Craig Dahl to a three-year contract Saturday, finding an apparent replacement after Dashon Goldson received a five-year deal from the Buccaneers last week. Dahl, 27, spent the past four seasons with the Rams and registered 78 tackles and an interception in 2012. "It's a program I'm really familiar with, players and coaches I'm familiar with how they operate and the basis of what their team fundamentals are," he said.
