49ers hire Martin Mayhew as a senior personnel executive

Feb 9, 2017 at 1:38 PM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch revealed on Thursday, during the team's introductory press conference, that the team has hired Martin Mayhew as a senior personnel executive.

Mayhew has experience as a general manager, serving in the role with the Detroit Lions from 2008 until 2015. Mayhew played cornerback in the NFL for eight seasons from 1989 until 1996. He spent time with the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was part of the Washington championship team that won Super Bowl XXVI.

"My relationship with Martin spans more than two decades, and in that time I have developed a tremendous amount of respect for him both personally and professionally," said Lynch via a statement issued by the team. "Not only do we gain a tremendous talent evaluator, but also a highly experienced front office executive. Martin has sat in the seat as a general manager and his experience will play an integral role in helping us locate the type of football player we want representing this organization both on the field and in the community. I am excited to have him as a teammate once again."

On January 31, Lynch was able to bring in former Denver Broncos director of college scouting Adam Peters to serve as the team's vice president of player personnel. Since Peters would not be getting full control of the roster, Broncos general manager John Elway had the power to block the request to interview Peters but chose not to do so. Elway revealed on Thursday that his relationship with Lynch influenced his decision to allow Peters to join the 49ers.

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall

Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on
