ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Receiver Stevie Johnson is heading to his hometown San Francisco 49ers after being the odd man out in Buffalo. The Bills traded Johnson to the 49ers on Friday in a deal made before the start of the second round of the NFL draft. In exchange, Buffalo acquired an undisclosed pick next year. ESPN reported it was a conditional fourth-round selection. The deal was made a day after the Bills traded up five spots to select Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins with the fourth pick. Watkins addition was the latest in a series of moves the Bills have made to restock their receiver position, and it led to Johnson being expendable after six seasons in Buffalo. The Bills also acquired receiver Mike Williams in a trade with Tampa Bay last month. Last year, Buffalo used second- and third-round picks to draft Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. Johnson left Buffalo on Thursday, when he was spotted on a flight that landed in Las Vegas about an hour after Buffalo drafted Watkins. "Todays decision was not an easy one to make, especially involving a player like Stevie, who leaves everything he has on the field and is an emotional leader in our locker room," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "All of the decisions we make are done so in the best interest of our team." The 49ers, by comparison, had a need for receiver and were expected to address the position in the draft. San Francisco instead gained an experienced player in Johnson to fill a key spot as San Franciscos likely No. 3 receiver behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. While Boldin received a new $12 million, two-year contract in March, Crabtree is entering the final season of his contract and San Francisco lost Mario Manningham in free agency. Johnson spent the past four seasons as a starter in Buffalo. He became the Bills first player to break 1,000 yards receiving in consecutive seasons in 2010-11, and extended the streak in 2012. 49ers first-round draft pick safety Jimmie Ward was thrilled to learn of the addition of Johnson as the defender made the rounds at team headquarters Friday. "Its awesome," Ward said. "Im a competitor so I like to play against the best guys. If youve got a lot of best guys on your team, thats only going to get me better at the end of the day." Johnsons numbers dropped last year, when he finished with 52 catches for 597 yards in 12 games. Aside from being slowed by an assortment of injuries, he was excused by the team for the final two games of the season following the death of his mother. Overall, he has 301 catches for 3,842 yards and 28 touchdowns in 75 games. Johnson is from San Francisco and played collegiately at Kentucky. The Bills selected him in the seventh round in 2008. At 6-foot-2 and 207 pounds, Johnson can play on the outside, but is best suited to play an inside slot position. Johnson is known for his outgoing personality and colorful touchdown celebrations that have, on occasion, gotten him into trouble. Former Bills coach Chan Gailey benched Johnson for the final three quarters of Buffalos 2011 season finale. The discipline occurred after Johnson was penalized a second time that season for an excessive touchdown celebration. The Bills, who havent made the playoffs in 14 seasons, are counting on Watkins to add a dynamic threat to an offence that lacked consistency last season under rookie quarterback EJ Manuel. Whaley acknowledged the risk he took with a "win-now" approach by giving up a No. 9 pick this year, plus a first- and fourth-round pick next year in trade with Cleveland to select Watkins. Thats fine with Watkins, who arrived in Buffalo earlier in the day. "Throughout my whole life Ive had high expectations of myself," Watkins said. "I cant wait to get it started." In three seasons, Watkins set 23 school records, including career marks with 240 catches and 3,391 yards. His 27 career touchdowns matched a school record.

"Things have obviously not gone as well as I would have thought probable.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Bernardo Anor scored twice after Marco Di Vaio had given Montreal the lead and the Columbus Crew ended a seven-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory against the Impact on Saturday. Anor had not scored since getting his first two goals of the season vs. Philadelphia on March 22 but struck with laser precision from distance in the 56th and 75th minutes. Montreal (3-10-5) lost its third straight and Impact coach Frank Klopas said it literally was a case of his players not stepping up. Both Anor goals came from outside the penalty after he found time and space. "I think we could have stepped on him a little bit quicker and we didnt," Klopas said. Columbus goalkeeper Steve Clark made five saves and was spectacular in shutting down the Impact after Di Vaios goal in the 35th minute. Clark kept the match level at 1-1 in the 62nd minute with a diving stop of Felipe Martins then followed two minutes later with rapid-fire denials of Di Vaio and a second-chance effort from Andres Romero that brought the sellout crowd of 21,112 in Crew Stadium to their feet. Moments after Columbus (5-8-7) forward Aaron Schoenfeld sent a glancing header off the right post, Clark lunged left to his left for another save on Romero in the 69th minute. "(Anor) scored two fantastic goals but Steve was our man of the match," Columbus coach Gregg Berhalter said. The Impact felt the Crew were ripe for the taking because Columbus was 0-3-4 in its previous seven matches and coming off a loss to Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday while Montreal was idle. "Its games like this you feel youve got to get something out of it," Klopas said. Instead, the Impact fell too 0-6-3 on the road with another away match Thursday at Real Salt Lake.dddddddddddd. "Weve got to get results," said Montreal captain Patrice Bernier. "Theres a short, short window left for us to believe that something can be done. After that, you start thinking maybe next year." Klopas gave Ohio native Evan Bush his first MLS start of the season and third of his MLS career over Troy Perkins. "There are moments in the season when one guys not in the best form and the other guy is," Klopas said. "You have to reward the guy who is." Montreal started well in front of Bush as Di Vaio continued his hot stretch with his fourth goal of the season and third in the past four games. The Impact took advantage of a turnover by defender Michael Parkhurst, who prior to the match was named to the MLS All-Star team that will face Bayern Munich on Aug. 6 in Portland, Ore. Justin Mapp plucked the ball from his feet and fed Di Vaio on the right wing. Di Vaio did the rest from there, faking Costa Rican World Cup defender Giancarlo Gonzalez then driving the ball past Clark from just inside the box. It was the sixth time in 10 home games that the Crew conceded the first goal. Montreals Jack McInerney missed an open look that would have made it 2-0 in the 54th minute and Anor made the Impact pay with his strike from the top of the arc two minutes later and a screaming blast from 25 yards for the victory. "Thats the first time this season that I can say Im at a loss of words," Montreal defender Heath Pearce said. "Of course it feels like since the very first game of the season weve been swimming against the current." ' ' '
