The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have re-signed QB Josh Johnson. To make room on the roster for Johnson, the 49ers released TE Asante Cleveland. The move was made just days prior to last week’s game as TE Vernon Davis and TE Vance McDonald¬†were ruled out for the game.

And while I said that Davis looked fine last week while being shocked he didn’t play, he’s back to normal today as he told the media he feels, “way better.”
