The Indianapolis Colts today acquired linebacker Cam Johnson in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a conditional draft pick.
Johnson, 6-3, 268 pounds, was originally a seventh-round selection (237th overall) of the 49ers in the 2012 NFL Draft. Last season, he spent the first 14 games of the year on the 49ers practice squad before being elevated to the active roster on December 22. Johnson saw action in the final two regular season games but did not record any statistics.
Johnson played in 42 games (34 starts) at the University of Virginia and registered 130 tackles, 32.5 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. As a senior in 2011, he started all 12 games and led the team with 4.0 sacks and 11.0 tackles for loss. As a junior in 2010, Johnson was named an All-ACC third-team selection by the Roanoke Times after totaling a career-high 53 tackles, while leading the team in sacks (6.5) and tackles for loss (14.5).
