Draft Scout Josh Johnson News
09/01/14 - QB Josh Johnson made the 49ers' season-opening, 53-man roster as the team's third quarterback. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh had lobbied team management to keep a third quarterback behind QB Colin Kaepernick and QB Blaine Gabbert.
08/29/14 - QB Josh Johnson's bid to move ahead of No. 2 quarterback Blaine Gabbert on the depth chart and/or make the team as a third QB took a hit when he had an interception returned for a touchdown in the preseason finale against Houston.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh had made it clear earlier: The battle for No. 2 would be won by the guy who made the fewest mistakes. Johnson did throw three touchdown passes in the game.
06/01/14 - QB John Johnson was signed by the 49ers May 15.
05/31/14 - CB Josh Johnson had his contract terminated by the Bengals on May 12.
08/11/13 - QB Josh Johnson directed the Bengals to four scores on Thursday night. Of the six possessions that Johnson was in, he had 164 of the 253 total yards in that span.
"I always feel good to be able to lead scoring drives and we were able to go out there and move the ball down the field but obviously there's things we have to correct and I am my worst critic so I am going to be up on the film as immediately as I can, try to get better," Johnson said.
Johnson had the biggest offensive play of the night with a 43-yard scramble to the Atlanta 37 on the first play of the second quarter. That helped lead to a Mike Nugent field goal that tied the game at three.
Said Johnson of the play: "The opportunity presented itself. They were playing a match coverage where everyone had all their routes covered but no one had me. I was just something to give the defense to worry about."
