Bucs quarterback Josh Johnson has quietly developed into one of the league’s more promising backups. Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik doesn’t intend to change that by sending Johnson elsewhere.
NFL.com’s Jason LaCanfora writes that the Bucs aren’t interested in trading Johnson. There has been some speculation that the 49ers could be interested because Johnson has worked with Jim Harbaugh, but that never rose above dot connecting by reporters.
Johnson looked good against the Chiefs last week in the preseason, but we’re not sure there would be a huge trade market for him at this point anyway. He will be an intriguing free agent after the season.
