49ers cut Darius Fleming, sign Travis Johnson

Apparently Fleming tore the same ACL he tore last season and has been waived. Team signed Travis Johnson who plays OLB. Not like Fleming was going to be a huge contributor but it would have been nice if he could have filled a ST/backup ILB role for us. After Willis/Bowman the team has basically nobody at ILB (unless the team planed on using Brooks at ILB if Willis or Bowman go down and using a backup OLB to replace him which I doubt). Bleacher Report which I usually hate had an article today saying the 9ers should bring back Takeo Spikes, that idea I can get behind.

NO!!!!!!

TKO is the kiss of death when it comes to playoffs.

NO!
NO!
HELLLLZ NO!
Feel kinda bad for this kid, he just cant seem to catch a break.
Somewhere, Marcus Lattimore is thinking the Niners are doing the right thing for him despite his yearning to play.

spikes is what ,, a million years old.i do not think so,, but if they bring back huggins/higgins whoever the f**k,,, i will jump off the ledge
Still have Willhoite (sp?), no?

Isn't Nate Stupar practicing at ILB?

Two good ST players, might offer something as backups.
No bigggie for the team, he probably wouldn't have made the roster anyway. I feel bad for Flemming though. He probably will never play football again. Hope he got a real college degree.
Travis Johnson will become the sack leader of the NFL season and crush JJ Watt and Aldon Smith's performance from last year. BOOK IT!
Im guessing Moody and whoever else is backing up ILBs are impressing the coaches, if they feel ILB needed help they would of added it. The competition for the 3rd and 4th OLB spot is gonna be intense.

Too bad for Fleming, he has a good attitude, hope he comes back next year

Dont know much about Johnson, He's prob just a camp body

Niners love what they have seen with Cam Johnson on the outside, and Wilhoite at ILB
along with Haralson, Lemonier and Skuta. I think were in good shape as far as depth goes
I like Travis Johnson. Was hoping we'd get him late. Career sack leader for the WAC.

It seems Fleming was just snake-bitten...couldn't catch a break. But, this is a performance league and if you can't get on the field, somebody will take your place. Johnson is a kid I was hoping they'd either draft or sign as an UDFA. The kid can play...and now will get a chance to prove it. I feel for Fleming, but this is a great opportunity for Travis.
