49ers Prepared To Replace QB Alex Smith With Josh Johnson?

March 9, 2012 49ers, Buccaneers

Matt Maicco of the CSN Bay Area believes that the 49ers will target QB Josh Johnson if they’re unable to reach a deal with Alex Smith before the start of the free agency next tuesday.

It’s been reported that the 49ers and Smith are at a standstill as Smith is supposedly looking for a five-year contract while the team is only offering three-years.

Maiocco mentions that Johnson would most likely be the team’s starting quarterback instead of Colin Kaepernick.

What’s interesting about the idea is that both players are very athletic quarterbacks which seems to be a trait that Jim Harbaugh and company favor in their quarterbacks.
