Stevie Johnson looks like a fine fit
By Bill Williamson
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- This is what Colin Kaepernick had to say about his limited offseason work with new receiver Stevie Johnson: "It was pretty easy. He's another guy that's easy to throw to because he creates so much separation. Very quick, very deceptive, and I'm happy he's on our side of the ball."
Thursday, in the 49ers' first training camp practice, we could see why Kaepernick was so pleased that the 49ers' traded a mid-round pick next year to Buffalo for Johnson. He was all over the field and he was one of the bright lights of Day 1 of the 49ers' training camp.
Johnson was limited in the offseason by a minor injury. He looked in mid-season form Thursday.
