John Lynch Outta Nowhere to Be Named 49ers GM

Ryan Glasspiegel

John Lynch, the former safety for the Bucs and Broncos, will be the new 49ers general manager, according to Jay Glazer Adam Schefter:

This is a shocking development; Lynch, a Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist, had not previously been mentioned in any reports as a candidate. He has been a broadcaster for FOX since retiring from the NFL in 2008.

Time will tell if the pairing of Lynch and presumably Kyle Shanahan at head coach is a wise move for the 49ers.
