No option for Laken Tomlinson, but 49ers interested in deal
The 49ers had two decisions to make about fifth-year options on 2015 first-round picks by May 3 of this year.

Is it Flacco’s responsibility to help Jackson take his job?
Jackson may become the starter at some point this year, particularly if Flacco gets hurt, or it could happen in 2019 or 2020 but regardless of when it happens (and it seems clear it will happen someday), is it Flacco’s responsibility to get the kid ready to take his job from him?
Yes, Josh McCown has said he’s eager to help Sam Darnold, the New York Jets ’ first-round draft pick, in any way he can.
