Watch Brandon Aiyuk make this one-handed circus catch while training

Jul 15, 2020 at 9:58 PM--

Here's a little Niner nugget for you. Our friends over at @TheSFNiners posted a very short video of San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk making a one-handed catch while training.

And it's not just that it was a one-handed catch. Aiyuk turns the reception into a circus catch, which you just have to watch to believe. The football goes through his legs and then ends up in his other hand before the receiver's feet touch the ground.

Rookies are currently scheduled to report to training camp next week. Although, the 49ers are awaiting word from Santa Clara County and the state of California. Both are reviewing the coronavirus protocols the team plans to use, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

San Francisco made Aiyuk the second of its two first-round picks in April's draft. If all goes as planned, next week will be the first time he gets to meet with his new coaching staff face-to-face. NFL players have not been allowed in team facilities since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a
