John Lynch: “Nothing’s changed” on Deebo Samuel
As it turns out, Odell Beckham Jr. was treating the last day of April as if it was the first day of April,
tweeting as a joke that 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel was being traded to the Patriots.
(OBJ was committed to the gag, hinting at the coming fake scoop a day early.)
The truth was and is that nothing is happening. 49ers G.M. John Lynch was asked by reporters on Saturday
whether there were any more phone calls from other teams about Samuel and whether anything has changed.
The 49ers made it clear on Friday night that they hope nothing changes. They want things to settle down
They hope they can figure something out. While the true issue between player and team officially begins a mystery
49ers coach Kyle Shanahan seemed to blurt out on Friday night that a contractual impasse is at the core of the situation.
