It is fair to say that 49ers general manager John Lynch is developing something of a wheeler dealer reputation during his first few months on the job. Few will forget how he secured extra picks to drop down a spot in the first round of the 2017 draft, all while still ending up with the player they probably would have taken anyway. He enhanced this reputation earlier this week when he sent tight end Vance McDonald, a recipient of a quite ludicrous contract from the last regime, on his way to the Steelers for a fifth-round pick. This does leave the 49ers TE corps somewhat lacking in experience. But it should mean early exposure to NFL waters for rookie George Kittle. Who is George Kittle, you may find yourself asking. Well, let me introduce you.
