Whitner’s short term memory

Former Bills first-round pick and current San Francisco safety Donte Whitner was asked about some of his former teammates on offense as the 49ers media felt he would have a good handle on them having practiced against them on a daily basis. Apparently Whitner forgets a lot real quick.

When asked about Stevie Johnson as a receiver Whitner said Buffalo’s top wideout began his Bills career on the practice squad, which is completely inaccurate.

“He’s a guy that was there when I was there. He’s a guy that rose up through the practice squad and worked his way into the player he is today,” said Whitner. “He’s going to be a guy where we have to know where he is each and every play.”

So while he credits Johnson for what he has become as a player he seems to forget how the receiver rose up the depth chart on the 53-man roster.
