John Lynch said yesterday he thought there was “good news on the horizon” regarding his own contract.

Now, he can see it.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the 49ers General Manager has agreed to terms on a multi-year contract extension.

The deal will span five years, per Garafolo, keeping him under contract through 2024.

The extension signed by coach Kyle Shanahan this offseason runs through 2025.

Both coach and G.M. were unknown commodities when hired (though Shanahan was more in-demand based on his role as a coordinator), but they’ve built a solid team with a base of young talent, and now stability in the front office.

  1. The 49ers could have done much worse. It took a while to reverse the rancid culture in SF, but Lynch did what it took to field a competitive team. If only Washington and Cleveland were so lucky.

  2. It’s strange seeing the 49ers front office do the right thing no matter how obvious it seems. I’m ecstatic that they finally have the right coach and the right GM.

  3. Hard to argue against this move. I wonder how much? I read that Elway, the GM of Denver, pulls down around 7 a year with perks.

  4. Hes made all the right moves and they should have won it all last year. He was a hell of a player in his day also.

  5. Why not the same as coach ????

    Lynch made a comment like “I’m not going to do this forever”. Sounds like he is enjoying what he is doing, but probably is not a lifer. Lynch may not have been comfortable committing past 2024.
