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.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to step onto the Levi's Stadium football field and kick off their 2020 season, seven months after suffering a heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. General manager John Lynch believes his squad has emerged from the offseason as a better unit. Now, the 49ers just have to go out and show that today against the Arizona Cardinals, and then the rest of their opponents this season. "The great thing about that, Greg, is that this is a show-me league," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers pre-game show (via Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports). "So we gotta show up and prove that.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided some injury updates heading into the team's Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets on Sunday. The latest injury is to pass rusher Dee Ford, who Lynch said came in with some neck stiffness this week. "We sent him for some imaging, and we're waiting to kind of hear those results here this morning," Lynch added. "We'll let you know as we know." Tight end George Kittle suffered a knee sprain right before halftime during the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend. He has not practiced yet this week but could still play on Sunday. "He did sprain his knee," Lynch said. "Is it out of the question that he plays? No. George is obviously very
