The San Francisco 49ers are coming off a Super Bowl appearance, but some are concerned about their cap situation.

John Lynch says the situation isn't dire, but admitted that some trade-offs will have to be made.

"Someone was asking me, 'Characterize our situation,'" Lynch said. "It's not bleak. It's not like some people where you have to cut players just to be able to meet certain deals. I think more so understanding that there are players that are really good players we want to take care of, knowing it is tight. There may have to be trade-offs along the way. But I think we're in a good position to find a way to certainly keep the core together and even, like I said, our mindset to improve it."
