The 49ers just announced that they have signed quarterback Josh Johnson. He was the Bengals’ backup quarterback last season, but they replaced him this offseason by signing Jason Campbell and drafting A.J. McCarron.
Do you like the Johnson signing? I do. I think he has the ability to beat out Blaine Gabbert for the 49ers’ No.2 QB job.
Johnson turns 28 on Thursday. He went to Oakland Tech with Marshawn Lynch, and started two seasons under Jim Harbaugh at the University of San Diego. Johnson’s senior season, he threw 42 touchdowns and just one interception under head coach Ron Caragher.
