49ers GM John Lynch said he’s spoken to a few teams about potential trades in recent days.
“It’s kind of that time of year, where people are calling and saying, ‘Hey, you’re strong here, we’re strong here. Let’s just kind of keep these things in mind.’ And, this is a great opportunity to do that. We did have some of those discussions,” Lynch said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area. “The greatest thing is lots of times you’re throwing on [film of] a preseason game. We get a chance for three days to look at some people we might be interested in. So you’re always doing that. I think they’re doing that as well and it’s another productive thing out of this week.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll explained that they did extensive work the domestic violence situation involving CB Trumaine Brock before the signed him to a one-year contract on Wednesday.
“What I would say to you is, I don’t know how anybody could have done a more extensive look into this,” Carroll said, via ESPN.com. “John [Schneider, the team’s general manager] started this quite some time ago and followed it throughout to make sure we knew exactly what was going on. I’m not going to go into particulars for you, but we feel assured that we have done all of the homework that can be done and done a little bit past that and then maybe past that.
“We’ve really done our work here and feel that we’re in a good place with him.”
“It’s going to affect your job, your endorsements and your money,” said Jones, via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. “Someone like me, going into my fourth year, I’m trying to get paid too. A lot of teams will look down at that and say, ‘He’s a Colin Kaepernick.'”
