49ers GM John Lynch was on Murph and Mac Wednesday morning and of course the hot topic was the status of a Jimmy Garoppolo deal. Here is what Lynch had to say regarding the contact situation.
“As I said last week, we are working hard and these things are complicated,” Lynch said. “We feel optimistic in the discussions we’ve had with Jimmy’s side, and not going to give a play-by-play as we agreed with Don Yee (Garoppolo’s agent) and Jimmy’s camp that we weren’t going to give play-by-plays on this, we are going to let it happen. I can tell you that we’ve had pretty good conversations and we are very optimistic.”
“I think the most important thing in a deal like this, as I said we want Jimmy very much to be our franchise quarterback, and I think Jimmy wants that as well,” Lynch said. “To me that makes too much sense not to happen. So, we’re going to continue working. Don Yee’s got another quarterback in this game, who’s very focused on this game, so we’re going to let this week play out and then get back to work and we’ll see. That’s the best update I can give you.”
