A bizarre encounter between 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw and Philadelphia Eagles chief security officer Dom DiSandro that led to the pair's ejection during the third quarter of San Francisco's blowout win Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field has the football world buzzing.
After one of the strangest altercations you'll ever see during an NFL game, though, DiSandro smartly spoke with 49ers general manager John Lynch to explain the situation, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Monday.
"Postgame, DiSandro spoke to 49ers general manager John Lynch to kind of explain what happened there," Garafolo said Monday on "From The Insiders." "I know [Eagles coach] Nick Sirianni apologized at his postgame press conference, and the conversation between DiSandro and Lynch ended on a good note. I'm told they dapped it up and moved on. I know some folks with the 49ers were not happy with how things went as far as a security person getting involved with the situation."

After the game, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan was irate with DiSandro's involvement in the scuffle that ended with one of his star players being ejected.
"I hope I didn't embarrass myself too bad," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "I didn't get to see it all from where I'm at, but when I started hearing people explain it to me and stuff, I just can't believe someone uninvolved in a football game can taunt our players like that and put their hands in our guy's face."
