49ers to hire Lynch as GM

Nothing the San Francisco 49ers does these days surprises me. They are reportedly going to make Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan their next head coach and why not add the general manager after the head coach? Makes sense.

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Niners are ready to name their next G.M., and the dude has no front office experience.

Schefter says that 49ers are set to sign former safety John Lynch to an unprecedented six-year contract. SIX YEARS.

Six years for a guy whose never been a general manager and his current job is as an analyst for Fox Sports during NFL games.

Not to say he can’t do the job, we’ll see. Maybe he’ll be great. Just seems like a long time for someone with no experience.
