Lynch: Shanahan's plan was to sign Kirk Cousins, Garoppolo 'had to really prove himself'


Lynch: Shanahan's plan was to sign Kirk Cousins, Garoppolo 'had to really prove himself'

Remember all those stories about how the 49ers were going to try to sign Kirk Cousins?

Well. They were all accurate.

On Wednesday, 49ers GM John Lynch was asked about acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo at the deadline.

"We made the trade, but then there were some days when Kyle Shanahan was like in mourning, because I think everybody knows his master plan was to have Kirk Cousins come in eventually," Lynch said on ESPN radio. "I was proud of Kyle because I think he knew that this was the right thing for our franchise and he didn't hesitate.

"But even then, Jimmy had to really prove himself. Kyle was really smart -- he didn't play him right away ... when he did put him in, he put him in a position to succeed.

"I would tell you that Jimmy really impressed Kyle, to the point where he said, 'This is our guy.'"

Yes. Garoppolo is the 49ers' guy.

The 26-year old signed a 5-year deal worth up to more than $137 million (with over $74 million guaranteed).

Cousins, meanwhile, inked a 3-year deal with Minnesota that will pay him $84 million guaranteed.

Terrell Owens selects former 49ers coach as his Hall of Fame presenter


Terrell Owens selects former 49ers coach as his Hall of Fame presenter

Terrell Owens has selected former 49ers special teams and wide receivers coach George Stewart as his presenter into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“He knew what to get out of me,” Owens told the Hall of Fame.

“He knows who I am. To know who Terrell Owens is, you have to spend some time with him. . . George Stewart became a father figure to me.”

Owens was elected into the Hall of Fame in February. He will enter the Hall of Fame in a class that also includes wide receiver Randy Moss, linebackers Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher and Robert Brazile, safety Brian Dawkins, guard Jerry Kramer, and contributor Bobby Beathard.

Owens played special teams under Stewart’s direction as a rookie after coming to the 49ers in 1996.

From 2000 to ’02, Stewart worked as the 49ers’ wide receivers coach. Owens was selected to three consecutive All-Pro teams and Pro Bowls during that time. Owens ranks No. 2 all time behind Jerry Rice with 15,934 receiving yards. He is third all-time with 153 receiving touchdowns.

Stewart is set to enter his 30th NFL season as an assistant coach and his second as special-teams coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Class of 2018 will be enshrined inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday, Aug. 4.
