49ers re-signing CB Dontae Johnson (again), per report

Dec 11, 2019 at 8:44 AM--

It would seem that the San Francisco 49ers aren't done with 28-year-old cornerback Dontae Johnson. The team is re-signing him, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio.

The move comes after Richard Sherman suffered a hamstring strain on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. The 49ers' starting cornerback is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, making his earliest possible return in time for the team's Week 17 matchup against his former squad, the Seattle Seahawks.

Another 49ers cornerback, K'Waun Williams, is also dealing with an injury from the Saints game. He is in the concussion protocol.

The 49ers made Johnson a fourth-round selection out of NC State in 2014, and he remained with the team through the 2017 season. Johnson spent last year with the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, and Arizona Cardinals. He rejoined San Francisco on May 28, 2019, after a brief offseason stop with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Johnson was released as part of the roster cuts on August 30. The 49ers brought him back on October 3 only to waive him again on November 11.

Johnson has appeared in seven games this season between his time with the 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers. All three of his tackles this year have come with San Francisco.

The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Mostert and his agent either want a new deal or want the running back to go to a team that will offer him one. What exactly is Mostert requesting from the 49ers? Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
