John Lynch calls reports of 49ers’ interest in Jamal Adams ‘totally inaccurate’

Jul 27, 2020 at 11:19 AM--


There were multiple reports that the San Francisco 49ers were among those contending to acquire former New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. The most recent came from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, who stated that both the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys were among the teams involved in trade discussions.

General manager John Lynch calls those reports inaccurate.

"Totally inaccurate," Lynch told NBC Sports Bay Area. "We did not ever make a call about the player."

The Jets ended up shipping the All-Pro safety to the division-rival Seattle Seahawks, where he will now face the 49ers at least twice a year.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area notes that the 49ers currently have $11.97 million in salary-cap room. The salary cap is expected to fall next season as a result of revenue losses from the expected absence of fans at games due to the pandemic. The team is also looking to lock up tight end George Kittle to a long-term deal.

There are several other key players scheduled to become free agents next year, including offensive tackle Trent Williams, cornerback Richard Sherman, and fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Trading for Adams could have complicated things.

The Jets made Adams the No. 6 overall selection in 2017 after playing college football at LSU. He registered 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, an interception, a touchdown, and two forced fumbles through 14 games with New York in 2019.

John Lynch, 49ers confident in Jimmy Garoppolo, but QB will have to prove himself vs. Rams

Even sitting with a 2-3 record, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has no shortage of confidence in his team's ability to step onto the football field and beat anyone. That includes Sunday night's opponent, the Los Angeles Rams. To do that, though, the 49ers will need Jimmy Garoppolo to perform a whole lot better than he did this past weekend against the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback was playing on an injured ankle, which impacted his play, but he's practiced all week and is expected to start against the Rams. "The doctors cleared Jimmy (before Sunday's game)," Lynch said Friday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He was ready to go. They felt like he could protect himself." That changed after two quarters of play. Head

It feels like a long time since we saw San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams destroy Arizona Cardinals linebacker Jordan Hicks on a block during Week 1. The offensive lineman has been the subject of debate among analysts in recent weeks. https://twitter.com/dieter/status/1305256223130828800 The overall perception has been that Williams has struggled. Although, the tackle will debate that and defend his performances. "I know sometimes the public perception can think some things are on you when in-house, you kind of know they're not,"

Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch believe Nick Bosa can become an Aaron Donald-type player for 49ers

Defensive end Nick Bosa hit a setback in his development. The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year suffered a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. Who knows what kind of difference Bosa's presence might have made for the struggling San Francisco 49ers? They probably would have more than just two wins at this point. Bosa hasn't been the only injury, but his loss may have been the most impactful for the defense. The pass rush hasn't been as effective without the second-year defender. Also missing is veteran Dee Ford, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan knows what a good pass rush can do for a defense, and the loss of Bosa has crippled the efforts to frustrate quarterbacks this season. The young pass
