Longtime 49ers cornerback Shawntae Spencer believes he may have played his last game in San Francisco.
Spencer has been with the 49ers since they took him in the second round of the 2004 NFL draft, and he started every game in 2009 and 2010. But with the new coaching staff arriving in 2011 he lost his starting job, and he was inactive for both playoff games. Spencer says being inactive for the playoffs made him feel like a kid without a prom date.
“It’s like dating the same girl all through junior high and high school and then come senior year, she’s dating another guy,” Spencer told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’ve played right corner since I got here.”
Spencer’s current contract runs through 2012, but he sounds like he wants to find a new date for next season.
