News: After his brilliant performance (14-of-17 passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns) in Thursday's final preseason game, coach Jim Harbaugh indicated that he wants Josh Johnson on the 53-man roster, in addition to Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick. Impact: Johnson has been battling Blaine Gabbert for the primary backup spot behind Colin Kaepernick all preseason. From a statistical standpoint, he has outperformed Gabbert on all levels, but Gabbert will be owed $2 million whether he makes the team or not, so it was generally accepted that Gabbert would win the battle. But Harbaugh's statement about carrying both quarterbacks introduces a new scenario where Johnson may make the 53-man roster after all. The 49ers finished last season with just two quarterbacks on the roster, but starting 2014 with three is not out of the question. We will see if Harbaugh's request is granted when rosters are trimmed to 53 on Saturday.(RotoWire, )
