After tonight, Johnson will be on an NFL roster this season, just may not be the 49ers. Still it may come down to numbers at other positions. You can never have too many pass rushers on a football team. I know it was just one game but he did show some quickness and moves that will definitely have the attention of the staff.

Gonna be an interesting next few days.

Can looks as good manny And hungry! as a backup I would take him all day
Or we can get a pick. Don't think it will be easy to let go. He does special teams too... Skuta < Johnson
Carrying 5 OLBs is not uncommon for 3-4 teams.

I could see them keep Aldon, Brooks, Lemonier, Skuta and Johnson.

I would rather Cam make the team than any of the guys vying for the 5th safety spot.
I've said before, I wouldn't want to be the guy making picks and cuts. Cam put on a thrill o rama and was easily best player on the field. But wilhoite, stupar,skuta(unless he was playing CB)...Lemonier, are all going to make this pick really hard and I know they want Lemonier. The other, man who knows.
After that showcase he may have earned a spot as an inactive body on the 53
I really think Cam is going to make this roster, he's been impressive in the preseason and having that additional pass rusher would be very useful in case of injury.

Um yeah Cam made the team..no surprise..he and Lemonier are the reason why we let Haralson go. He made the team before this game..but tonight definatley solidified it.

Exactly. He'll probably be on the 53, but will be inactive on gamedays as the 5th OLB.
Cam stays. If he develops properly, he may be leverage when it comes to Aldons contract. We may not need Aldon in the future.

Whoa, whoa, whoa!!! We need him now and forever lol.
I bet we keep 5 OLBs, and then try and trade one of the backups for draft picks. Guarantee there's a lot of teams out there looking for pass rushers.

Lemonier and Cam make Brooks expendable so we can have a high salary OLB and a rookie contract OLB to balance the cap hit.
