49ers will meet with Panthers’ Brandon Beane next week for GM job

Jan 5, 2017 at 12:54 PM--


Next week, the San Francisco 49ers will meet with Carolina Panthers assistant general manager Brandon Beane next week for their vacant general manager position. News of the meeting was first reported by Peter Schrager of FOX Sports.


In 2012, he served as the Panthers' interim general manager for the final 10 games of the season prior to the hiring of Dave Gettleman, the team's current general manager. Carolina promoted Beane to assistant general manager in June of 2015.

Prior to the promotion, Beane spent seven seasons as the team's director of football operations. He has been responsible for directing portions of the team's drafts, putting together the team's draft boards for the past five years and helping to execute trades for cornerback Bene Benwikere, wide receiver Devin Funchess and offensive tackle Daryl Williams.

The 49ers already have a visit with Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott scheduled for next week. It is safe to say that the two will be met with within the same timeframe.

49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo



John Lynch says 49ers believe in Brandon Aiyuk but need more 'urgency' from receiver

Brandon Aiyuk has been the talk amongst 49ers fans after his slow start to the season. He has only caught eight passes for 90 yards over the team's first six games, despite breaking out as a rookie, having caught 60 passes for 748 yards and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three of those categories in 2020. Last week, John Lynch spoke about his second-year receiver and stated that Aiyuk "hasn't made the strides [the 49ers] have expected him to," sparking a controversy about whether the team's been misusing him, or if there's really something different about Aiyuk. Still, Lynch, who spoke with NBC's Matt Maiocco, has given his utmost confidence in the 25th



49ers' Nick Bosa excited by Trey Lance's progress, believes Brandon Aiyuk will 'come alive'

Trey Lance entered the NFL without a whole lot of collegiate experience under his belt. He started only one full season for the North Dakota State Bison. He joined the San Francisco 49ers with a lot to learn, and the plan has always been to start Jimmy Garoppolo during the regular season, allowing Lance the time needed to absorb the offense. The most anyone expected from Lance was to see the quarterback sprinkled into the offensive game plan from week to week. However, an injury to Garoppolo thrust the rookie into the starting lineup during Week 5. Nick Bosa joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and was asked about the team's young quarterback. How much growth has the pass rusher seen from Lance since the 21-year-old first joined the squad? "He's come a



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Brandon Aiyuk isn't 'quite back to where he was'

Brandon Aiyuk's lack of involvement within the San Francisco 49ers offense has been one of the more bizarre storylines of this season. After an impressive rookie campaign last year that saw the receiver haul in 60 passes for 748 yards, Aiyuk has been limited to just nine catches and one touchdown on 16 targets through six games. Understandably, those aren't the numbers many expected from his sophomore NFL season. There was a lot of speculation surrounding Aiyuk's reduced role in 2021. Was he in Kyle Shanahan's doghouse? The coach denied that, saying that injuries initially contributed to Aiyuk's lack of involvement. The receiver has been limited to just one catch in three of his five starts. "I just want Aiyuk to keep getting better," head coach Kyle Shanahan
