The 49ers have hired Aaron Salkin their director of public relations. Why do we bother to mention this somewhat mundane story? Because it serves as a reminder of what happened to their last PR director, Kirk Reynolds, who resigned after the explicit training video he made became public.
Salkin was the subject of a mini-controversy himself last year, when the Falcons fired him during training camp. The official word was that he had philosophical differences with owner Arthur Blank, but it couldn't have helped his ability to deal with the press that he had called them leeches.
