John York calls report of Jed losing power “completely” false

San Francisco 49ers owner John York commented on a recent report following the team's 41-13 dismantling by the Falcons in Atlanta. He shot down a report of his son, CEO Jed York, losing power with the team. York was asked by Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group if the report was indeed false. "Completely," he answered.


The report originated on December 11 when Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that 49ers general manager Trent Baalke would be fired. "Several NFL owners believe 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, and Mike Shanahan, who has been under consideration for coaching openings there in the past, could join the 49ers in a coaching and/or executive capacity," La Canfora wrote within the report.

A day later, La Canfora expanded on that report while on KNBR. "[Jed York] would be out," he said about the situation should it come to fruition. "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."

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk refuted the report by La Canfora, saying it was completely false and that Jed York is not going anywhere. He also stated that Shanahan was not coming to the 49ers in any capacity. La Canfora continued to stand by his original report and once again went on KNBR to reaffirm what he had said and discuss the Florio comments.

As early as yesterday, La Canfora stated that he continues to hear information about a possible shakeup in the San Francisco 49ers organization soon. He stated that many plugged-in sources still point to a "growing schism" within the York family over future of the team.


The 49ers are now 1-13 and changes will likely take place following the season. We will likely have to wait until then to see what those changes are.

John Lynch: 49ers want to keep Brandon Aiyuk around for a long time

By David Bonilla
Feb 27

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch addressed reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Naturally, he fielded a question regarding Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation amidst the unexpected $30.6 million increase in the salary cap. Lynch acknowledged that the significant salary cap increase was a welcome sight. However, he notes that every team benefits from the unprecedented cap increase, not just the 49ers. Aiyuk is entering his fifth NFL season and is currently slated to play on the team-exercised fifth-year option. Naturally, both parties are interested in working out a long-term deal that is financially beneficial for the player and the

John Lynch provides updates on Jauan Jennings, 49ers' front office moves

By David Bonilla
Feb 27

Jauan Jennings is poised to become a restricted free agent, offering the San Francisco 49ers various avenues to retain the talented wide receiver. One such option involves signing Jennings to a long-term contract, a possibility that general manager John Lynch openly acknowledged as a possibility while speaking to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. If that doesn't happen, the 49ers can tender Jennings, giving the team the right to match any more lucrative offers from other teams. Alternatively, they could attach the tendered offer to a draft pick, a costlier approach when it comes to guaranteed salary, but one that would force interested teams to surrender compensation if the 49ers opt not to match competing offers. All of those options

Why John Lynch doesn't expect 49ers' continued DC search to impact draft evaluations

By David Bonilla
Feb 27

Many anticipated that the San Francisco 49ers would have a new defensive coordinator in place this week as the team delves into studying draft prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. That didn't happen, and head coach Kyle Shanahan continues to seek a replacement for Steve Wilks, who was dismissed after the 49ers' Super Bowl 58 defeat. Shanahan recently confirmed two interviews—one with former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley and the other with 49ers defensive passing game specialist Nick Sorensen. Additional interviews are scheduled for this week. The continued search means that

John Lynch says Brock Purdy has given 49ers stability at QB

By Marc Adams
Feb 27

The San Francisco 49ers finally have stability at the quarterback position. And it's been a while coming. Three years ago, the team was on the verge of making a major trade for the chance to draft Trey Lance, who they hoped would be the QB they had been waiting on. They needed to find a new quarterback because of the lack of stability at the position, primarily due to the number of games starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo seemed to miss most seasons. But after watching Lance for some time, questions began to arise as to whether or not he could be the quarterback they drafted him to be. And after he and Garoppolo both were lost to injury in 2022, Brock Purdy, the barely-drafted seventh-rounder came in and saved the season, leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. But a torn
