PFT: Jed York not leaving and Mike Shanahan not arriving

On Sunday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that Jed York's parents, Denise and John York, will be taking "a more hands-on approach with the team" as they determine how to reposition the franchise. That new involvement was said to possibly involve the ousting of their son Jed, general manager Trent Baalke, and maybe even head coach Chip Kelly. It may also involve the hiring of former Broncos and Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan in an undetermined role -- possibly as general manager.

Tonight, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that the report by La Canfora is completely false and that Jed York is not going anywhere. He also states that Shanahan is not coming to the 49ers in any capacity.

"According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, none of those things will be happening," reports Florio. "Jed York won't be leaving the football operation, his parents (Denise DeBartolo York and Dr. John York) won't be replacing him, and the team won't be hiring Mike Shanahan in any capacity."

"As the source explained it, the CBS report likely originated from an effort by Shanahan to get his name in circulation as the offseason carousel begins to spin," Florio continued.

Earlier today, La Canfora joined KNBR and said that Jed York would likely be removed from power in San Francisco. "[Jed] would be out," he said. "He wouldn't be involved in football operations. I mean you can get cute with titles. You can do whatever you think you have to do. But the premise would be, the top of the pyramid would be this person they bring in, to effectively be running the football operation."

The part about Shanahan seemed to be more speculation (based on the relationship between the team and the former coach) than anything else. "Wherever Mike was to end up – and I'm not assuming he definitely does get something – I think his best shot to get something would be San Francisco, but that's not a guarantee," La Canfora said today on the Gary & Larry show.

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than a week away, it's common for the rumor mill to start churning, especially with players who are actively seeking a new contract. It was just two short years ago that WR Deebo Samuel requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers prior to draft day, only for cooler heads to prevail and eventually agree to a new deal. Now, it's WR Brandon Aiyuk's turn to try and get paid and rumors surfaced over the weekend that he too would request to be dealt. While that report was quickly shot down by his agent, there's still a lot of discussion about Aiyuk's future and if other teams will come calling on draft night.

We are less than one week away from the NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers have their first day-one draft pick since 2021. That was the year they selected QB Trey Lance number three overall. The trade-up to get Lance cost the 49ers their first-round picks in 2022 and 2023. And now that they are back in the first round, at pick 31, fans are anxious to see what the team does with the pick. And with former assistant GM, Adam Peters, now in Washington, it will be interesting to see how well the 49ers draft without Peters in the room. We looked back at the seven drafts GM John Lynch and Head Coach Kyle Shanahan have led to see what information we could pull from those drafts. There were plenty of hits, plenty of misses, and a few surprises along the way. The draft picks are

Brock Purdy hopes Kyle Shanahan makes addition to 49ers playbook

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy threw for a franchise-record 4,280 yards last season, leading the team to the Super Bowl and earning his first Pro Bowl selection. He held onto the football 39 times on the ground, rushing for 144 yards and scoring twice. This marked a significant improvement over his rookie 2022 campaign when he had 22 carries for 13 yards and a score. Purdy further displayed his athleticism during the 49ers' playoff game against the Detroit Lions last season, helping engineer a comeback victory while rushing for 48 yards on five carries. On Tuesday morning, Purdy joined the "Pat McAfee Show," acknowledging that he believes he can contribute more rushing yards if called upon. However, that decision rests with head coach Kyle Shanahan,
