Golden Nuggets: Aaron Lynch’s suspension complicates things

Sunday, July 17, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

This is my first Nuggets post since Aaron Lynch was suspended for four-games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Lynch is, in my mind, the most-promising player on the San Francisco 49ers roster. He has the highest ceiling, the most potential and this suspension did a whole lot to crush what little optimism I’ve had for the bright spots on the team.

Of course, this is a gut reaction. Lynch could come out of this with a renewed desire to keep himself out of trouble with the league. I hope that’s what happens. But I have little hope when there are so many failures with the league’s substance abuse policy. Too many players who can’t follow the rules. Too many Josh Gordon examples to dampen my excitement.

Anyway ... not many new links for the day, so expect some repeats. If you find something I missed, post it in the comments. Onto the links for the day.
