The San Francisco 49ers already added one former Denver Broncos pass rusher, trading for Randy Gregory. Could they be eyeing yet another addition to their formidable defensive lineup?

The Broncos are releasing Frank Clark after signing him this offseason. The 49ers have been open to adding playmakers to their already talented roster. Might Clark pique their interests?

"You only have so many spots, and I think we're pretty good," general manager John Lynch told KNBR's Brian Murphy and Markus Boucher on Friday. "We like our group. Frank Clark has been a really good player, but that's all I'll say to that. We're happy with where our group's at."

Take that for what it's worth. If the 49ers were planning to look into adding a player like Clark, they are unlikely to disclose their interest until the process is closer to a decision.

As for another potential trade, that, too, isn't out of the realm of possibility.

"You know, we're always looking," Lynch said. "A lot of those calls have started. The GMs do a good job getting on the phone, asking teams, 'You got any needs? You got any wants?' And we're kind of in that process and just filling things out.

"We're certainly not opposed to it, adding something that can help us, and obviously attrition can always happen. Hopefully, it doesn't. We've been pretty good in terms of the health of our team, but you keep an eye on those things and never turn down an opportunity to improve yourself, provided it fits within our plan.

"I think we've adhered to that. We've made some big pickups, and we'll keep our eyes and ears wide open."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Lynch below.

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
