Cohn: Aaron Lynch is 20 pounds overweight

May 6, 2017 at 6:54 AM--

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aaron Lynch, once considered to be one of the better pass rushers in the league, is 20 pounds overweight, according to Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat.

Cohn was answering a fan who was asking, "Why do you feel A. Lynch might get cut?"

In a previous tweet, Cohn listed Lynch as a possible Trent Baalke draft pick cut candidate by the new 49ers regime. Others on the list include tight end Vance McDonald, who the 49ers attempted to trade during the draft, and wide receiver Bruce Ellington, who has had a problem staying healthy.

According to Cohn, Lynch currently weighs about 290 pounds – 20 pounds heavier than his 270-pounds listed weight.

Lynch was a fifth-round draft pick out of South Florida in the 2014 NFL Draft. During his first two seasons in the NFL, Lynch accumulated 12.5 sacks as the team's most productive pass rusher. He had just 1.5 sacks in 2016 after missing the first four games for violating the NFL substance abuse policy and dealing with a high ankle sprain later in the season – forcing him to miss five more games.

The rest of the 49ers return to the team on May 8th following San Francisco's rookie minicamp this weekend.

What is he going to do with all of his old clothes? Staley has already donated five garbage bags worth and restocked his closets with new belts. "As an offensive lineman, you're always known as this big, humongous, unathletic blob," Staley told Kaplan.

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement. That's what analyst Domonique Foxworth, along with ESPN personality Stephen
