Here’s how it went down over a long weekend (via ESPN.com and the San Jose Mercury News): After he reached out to Shanahan last week to express his interest, Lynch spent Thursday night with York in the Bay Area, then he flew to Atlanta and met with Shanahan.

Lynch is expected to be introduced Monday at a news conference. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lynch was given an unprecedented six-year contract, as will Shanahan when his deal becomes official after the Super Bowl.
