The San Francisco 49ers hosted Colin Kaepernick for a meeting on Wednesday.
“I would characterize it as just a really positive discussion,” John Lynch said during an appearance on KNBR, confirming a report the sides met for the first time since Lynch and Kyle Shanahan were hired in their new roles.
Lynch said he and Shanahan have committed to being completely honest with Kaepernick, who can opt out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent as early as next week.
“I do think that there are some things that are sacred,” Lynch said. “We did have a great discussion and I think Colin left excited and we left excited.
“And I think as Kyle and I believe, the evaluation process is still very much fluid. We’ve only been on the job a couple of weeks and I can tell you we both very much enjoyed being around Colin, and he seems like he’s a real good place.”
