Head coach Chip Kelly will keep three tight end’s with a fourth in Kyle Nelson, who is the team’s long snapper, as an emergency back up.
With the solid hands of both Garrett Celek, Vance McDonald and the athleticism of Blake Bell, this will leave Hamm and Miller as the odd men out.
Former fullback turned tight end Bruce Miller has generally been a mainstay on the 49ers offense since 2011. Miller has shown that he is struggling to keep up with the other tight ends, Miller has dropped a few open passes that could have extended drives.
Miller has shown to struggle in the blocking scheme as well and although he has great special teams ability, Miller will likely be cut due to cheaper options on special teams.
With the talent that Miller possesses, he will absolutely find a spot with another team’s 53-man roster. It seems though that with the position change, Miller’s time in San Francisco has come to an end.
