San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters via a conference call on Tuesday. He did so from his office at the team facility, noting that he could see quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on the practice field from his window.

There's something magnetic about his personality, not just his play, but about the way he carries himself, that smile, all those things. Then what he's done for this organization. ...
