49ers are one of six teams on Keyshawn’s radar

May 4, 2007 at 9:53 AM--


After some subtlety insulting comments about the team during the NFL Draft on ESPN, it is tough to believe that 49ers would want a wide receiver like Keyshawn Johnson. After questioning the team's ability to succeed in 2007, would he be able to buy into the 49ers' philosophy?

However, his release from the Panthers may have abruptly changed the unemployed wide receiver's point of view. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, San Francisco is one of six teams that Johnson and his agent are thought to be concentrating on. The others include Green Bay (who many feel are the front runner), Seattle, Tennessee and both New York teams. The question is, how interested are the 49ers?

Johnson (6-4 / 211 lbs) is entering his 12th season in the NFL. He has played for the Jets, Buccaneers, Cowboys and last year with the Panthers. In 2006, he had 70 receptions for 815 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Jimmy Garoppolo is 24-9 (including the playoffs) as a starter since being traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The coaching staff doesn't doubt the quarterback's ability to win football games. It perhaps doubts his availability, though, and that prompted the decision to trade up to draft Trey Lance at No. 3 overall. Garoppolo missed 10 games last season and has missed 23 games over the past three. Now, when he looks over his shoulder, he sees a 21-year-old quarterback itching to get onto the football field. So what does Garoppolo need to do to hold onto his starting job in 2021? The answer isn't rocket science and shouldn't come as a surprise. "Stay healthy," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said on Good Morning Football. "The guy is
