The 49ers might have already done the heavy lifting when it comes to free-agent shopping, according to a report from Steve Wyche of NFL Network.

“In speaking to John Lynch, he made it sound like — and remember the Niners have a boatload of money under the salary cap to pursue free agents — that they are not going to go after any of what Lynch liked to say, ‘the splash names.’”

Instead, Wyche paraphrases Lynch saying that the 49ers will pick up “marginal pieces.”

This news throws cold water on a report that the Niners are “pushing” for Andrew Norwell, an All-Pro and the premier free-agent guard.
