The Dontae Johnson generation wasn’t over for prolonged in San Francisco. After releasing the old cornerback Monday, the 49ers on Tuesday re-signed Johnson to their note squad. To accept room on the 17-participant roster they released undrafted rookie linebacker Elijah Sullivan.
Johnson was released to accept room for old cornerback Josh Norman on the 53-man roster. This is the third time he’s signed with San Francisco on memoir of the finish of final season. He inked a deal all the method through the offseason, was released at closing cuts, signed to the full of life roster a pair days later when CB Davontae Harris went on Injured Reserve, released to accept room for Norman, and now he’s back on the note squad where he could perhaps finally finish up playing a function as soon as he’s finished facing a hip wound.
The 49ers’ cornerback depth isn’t in particular sturdy, and a old admire Johnson who can play a pair of spots and make contributions on particular teams will be precious if San Francisco has any availability issues on their full of life roster.
Sullivan spent all offseason with the 49ers after going undrafted. he build aside collectively a factual exhibiting in three preseason video games and joined the note squad quickly after he cleared waivers. His free up leaves Rashad Smith as the fully linebacker on the note squad.
