Cam Johnson being traded to Colts???

you are right, we should have just cut them and got nothing
Good move.

We've got his base covered and now we get an opportunity to bankroll it with other picks to get someone better.

you guys need to look at this way we traded Cam for a 7th and Harper.

traded our 2012 7th round pick for Seahawks 2013 4th round pick and Colts 2014 7th round pick

You have to remember that the 49ers wanted to sign Chris Harper off the Seattle practice squad. To do that they have to put Harper on their 53 man roster and that means someone on the 53 man squad has to be released or traded.

So, the question is, is it better to trade a guy off the 53 and get something for him or release him and get nothing.

I think if you look at these two transactions together, you see the 49ers trading a 2012 7th round pick for the Seahawks 2013 4th round pick and the Colts 2014 7th round pick.

From that perspective, its a good deal.

Don't you guys realize we didnt choose Skuta over Cam Johnson? The reason we traded Cam was because he is better than Skuta. Neither of them were going to be in the LB rotation with Lemonier being the main backup. Cam just had the game of his life and flashed potential. It's not often a 7th round pick from a year ago, coming off an ACL injury fetches his team an equal round pick the next year despite putting career regular season #s of 0 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 interceptions. If we could've traded Skuta and kept Cam, we would have. But no one is trading for Skuta.
Man, us Niner fans can justify anything! Hey, we're the 49ers...we can do anything we want! Haha. Alright, best of luck to the former hers and onto the active 46!

Wrong...he also had a 4th down sack to preserve a win and multiple QB pressures. I believe he also was at the top of the list for these as well. Then he also blocked a punt, score a TD and played well on coverage units. So again, what more can the guy do? And who played better with his opportunities? He was also pretty stout against the run.

Took him two years and the eighth preseason game he's played to do all that

Then you dump Stupar b/c Skuta can play ILB as well and keep Cam on as a ST player along with Skuta (both very good in this area). We have enough picks next year and a late 7th does nothing for you.
We love giving away valuable depth players for nothing. We don't need Harper to be a project to be the next Delanie Walker... We drafted Vance McDonald for a reason.

If we have injuries at OLB, we're screwed again. We traded away all the outstanding depth we had in Haralson and Johnson for literally nothing. What good are we going to get out of those 7th rounders? Unless those picks turn into late round gems, we got hosed.

You do know he and Fleming were on IR last year right?

So you are saying we will get a top 50 player next year in the 7th d/t sickle cell again and he will return MORE next year for us than Cam would have this year, even if just on ST? Rare...

You're assuming they were going to get cut. One of which, I guarantee wasn't going to get cut. The other, probably the same.
You understand that Cam being traded was more than likely all planned because he was a bubble player that we expendable due to our LB depth. I'm cool with it

NT is going through another over-reaction, once again. I liked Cam, but the dude had a couple of sacks against 3rd stringers and practice squad players. The dude was super inconsistent at the college level.

We have 4 OLBs...we'd be all right.

Everyone knows next years draft class is going to be great. Maybe we can pick up a gem late in the draft. Worth a shot. Cam was the Tolzien of OLBs on this board.
