The 49ers will cut Stevie Johnson and save roughly $6 million in cap space, according to NBC4 D.C.
Johnson played well last season. When he was targeted, Colin Kaepernick posted a 102 passer rating. Johnson was in line to start opposite Anquan Boldin before the Niners made this move.
Who do you think will start opposite Boldin in 2015? How do you think the 49ers will spend the money they save by releasing Johnson? Does this move guarantee the 49ers will draft a wide receiver in the first round of the upcoming draft?
