ESPN - [Full Article]

The San Francisco 49ers are prepared to release receiver Stevie Johnson in an effort to create more salary-cap room before the start of the new league year on March 10, according to numerous reports.

Cutting Johnson would save the 49ers $6.025 million in cap space, according to overthecap.com.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson is only 28 and is a good possession receiver so he shouldn't be unemployed for long.
