Kinlaw shares bizarre IG video with squirrel in his mouth


Javon Kinlaw seems to be enjoying the start of his first NFL offseason, as the 49ers rookie shared a bizarre video on his Instagram story Sunday night showing him walking with what appears to be a dead squirrel in his mouth.

Kinlaw just completed a solid debut season with the 49ers, as the No. 14 overall pick ended the year with 33 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks, four pass deflections and an interception return for a touchdown.

General manager John Lynch recently told The Athletic's Tim Kawakami that Kinlaw's rookie season reminded him of his former teammate and Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp.

Kinlaw was handed a tall task as a rookie, as he essentially was asked to slide in and replace All-Pro DeForest Buckner on the interior of the 49ers' defensive line.

Both he and fellow 2020 first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk ended the season banged-up, but expectations will be even higher for the 49ers next season with those two healthy and on the field.

Kinlaw just had to get in touch with nature once his first NFL season came to a close.
