The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that they have re-signed QB Josh Johnson and released S Ray Ventrone to make room for him.
This is the third time the 49ers have signed Johnson to a contract this year. It’s pretty clear that he and Kassim Osgood are the No. 52 and 53 players on the team’s depth chart as they are continually released and re-signed, depending on the 49ers’ roster needs.
Johnson, 28, signed a one-year contract with the 49ers back in May, but has been behind Blaine Gabbert on their depth chart for several months.
Johnson appeared in two games last year while playing for the Bengals and received seven carries for 20 yards.
