The 49ers had two decisions to make about fifth-year options on 2015 first-round picks by May 3 of this year.
They exercised the option on defensive lineman Arik Armstead‘s contract Brandon Saad Jersey , but, as expected, they will not do the same with guard Laken Tomlinson. That doesn’t mean Tomlinson will be out the door after the 2018 season, however.
“Those options are tricky deals … I actually聽pulled Laken in here yesterday and had a great talk with him —聽we’re gonna work towards making Laken a part of us for the long-term future,” Lynch said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “The numbers are different at each position. Offensive guard was a little skewed because they include all offensive lineman — tackles get paid a lot so that number was extremely high. But we’ve already been talking with Laken’s guys about trying to make something happen, and we’ll see if that聽goes into next year.”
Tomlinson started 15 games at left guard for the 49ers last year.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman isn’t yet capable of taking part in practices with his new teammates in Santa Clara. However, that hasn’t stopped him from making his presence known in other ways.
According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle Youth Chris Kunitz Jersey , Sherman was serving as essentially another member of the 49ers coaching staff in the team’s OTAs on Tuesday.
Sherman, who was well known for his active role in coaching up younger teammates with the Seattle Seahawks, has taken on the same mindset with his new teammates on the 49ers.
鈥淲hen you鈥檝e got a guy that has played in (the defense) that long, and really started in that system, and has kind of excelled in it as well as anyone Rick Nash Jersey , it鈥檚 nice to have,鈥?Shanahan said.
As Shanahan mentioned, San Francisco defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was an assistant defensive coach in Seattle when Sherman was drafted in 2011. They spent three years together in Seattle before Saleh moved on to join Gus Bradley’s staff in Jacksonville. With the 49ers running a very similar scheme to the one Sherman excelled in with the Seahawks, he’s more than qualified to dispense advice to his new colleagues.
鈥淗e鈥檚 very active, he鈥檚 very hands-on and he wants to see my game go to the next level Jason Pominville Jersey Kids ,” cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon said.
Sherman is still recovering from a torn Achilles sustained last November, which is keeping him from taking part in offseason work. He had a secondary surgery to clean up bone spurs in his other ankle but that was a minor procedure.
