Niners sign RB Ian Johnson, cut Xavier Omon

The Niners have officially cut RB Xavier Omon, and signed former Boise St. RB Ian Johnson.

You may remember Johnson. He proposed to his girlfriend on the field after scoring the winning touchdown of the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.

Johnson (5’11”, 212 lbs.), weighs 15 pounds less than Omon, but what he lacks in mass he makes up for in speed. He ran a 4.46 40-yard dash at the 2009 NFL draft combine – the fastest time for a running back that year.
