The 49ers have gone a familiar route to fill a glaring need at wide receiver.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the 49ers are trading for displaced Bills wideout Stevie Johnson.
The cost is a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick which could become a third.
It was clear the Bills were ready to move him after moving up to draft Sammy Watkins last night.
From the 49ers standpoint, It’s a reasonable deal for a guy who should produce right away, similar to the Anquan Boldin deal last offseason. Along with Michael Crabtree, it gives them a solid group, and will allow them to devote the rest of their draft picks to other positions.
