SANTA CLARA, California — The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed quarterback Blaine Gabbert to a two-year contract while also releasing wide receiver Stevie Johnson a day after acquiring Torrey Smith.

San Francisco announced the moves Thursday. The 49ers also signed tight end Garrett Celek to a one-year deal.

Gabbert, acquired in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars last March, appeared in one game as relief to Colin Kaepernick and threw a touchdown pass.

Johnson posted Wednesday on Twitter, "Thank you (hashtag)SF," signaling his departure. The 28-year-old wideout had 35 catches for 435 yards and three touchdowns in his lone season with the Niners last year.
