Kyle Shanahan confirms the 49ers are open to trading Dante Pettis, have taken calls

Oct 23, 2020 at 1:51 PM--


A report by Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated surfaced on Thursday, stating that the San Francisco 49ers had made third-year wide receiver Dante Pettis, a former second-round draft pick, available via trade. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that on Friday while speaking with reporters.

"It's two weeks before the trade deadline," Shanahan explained. "I know (general manager) John (Lynch) has taken a number of calls on it. I know he's made some. That's stuff that we do right now. We'll see if it can help us, and if it does, we won't hesitate to do it."

There was some question whether or not Breer's report meant that the 49ers were actively shopping Pettis or were just willing to listen to offers. It would seem, from Shanahan's comments, that the team is working the phones to gauge interest from other organizations.

"But nothing is imminent," Shanahan added. "Dante's a part of our team, and there's a good chance he could still stay a part of our team. If he does, when his number's needed, and he gets his opportunity, I plan on him being ready."
