NFC West Update

Diana Marie Russini, of NBC4 Sports, reports that the San Francisco 49ers have released the veteran receiver saving the team $5.5 – $6 million in cap space. Johnson, had a stretch of three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons in Buffalo prior to being traded to San Francisco. Johnson is a possession receiver but during his most productive seasons demonstrated an ability to get behind defenders due to precise route-running and deceptive long speed. Last year’s 35/435/3 line was underwhelming but the 49ers’ offense as a whole was lackluster. The 28-year-old will probably fall into the second or third tier of free agent wide-outs this off-season.

Updating this previous report the 49ers will ask Johnson to take a pay cut first. If both sides cannot reach an agreement he will then be released
