What 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said about the upcoming trade deadline

The NFL trade deadline is on November 1. It's the last chance for teams to try to improve their rosters by dealing players with one another, getting ready for the final stretch of the regular season. The San Francisco 49ers will have just played the Los Angeles Rams and be entering their bye week when the deadline arrives, so they'll have a good idea of any glaring roster needs.

Right now, head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't thinking about the trade deadline. He is trying to get the 49ers to 4-2 coming out of a two-game East Coast road trip. So the coach is leaving the pre-trade scouting work to other capable hands.

"That's left to [general manager] John [Lynch], and everyone that is working with him, and the personnel department," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week from The Greenbrier in West Virginia.

The team is focused on their upcoming opponent, the Atlanta Falcons, not hypothetical scenarios that remain weeks away.

"I mean, it's stuff that John and I will talk about," Shanahan continued, "just where we're light, what we see going forward, guys with injuries coming back or not coming back. So you've kind of got to map that all out. But it's definitely not something I look into.

"They try to get all the options out there, and sometimes there's options, sometimes there's not. So it doesn't mean, just because you have issues, you can go get someone. But every once in a while, the stars align, something could work. Hopefully, if there is something that can help us, we'll figure that out."

In 2017, Shanahan and Lynch's first year with the 49ers, they traded for New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo before the deadline. The following season, San Francisco was quiet as the trade deadline approached and passed.

"The fact that we didn't do anything means there wasn't an option to improve ourselves," Shanahan said after the 2018 trade deadline.

In 2019, the 49ers traded for Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, a move that helped the team reach the Super Bowl. At the 2020 deadline, San Francisco traded linebacker Kwon Alexander to the New Orleans Saints, shortly after acquiring New York Jets defensive end Jordan Willis.

Last year, the 49ers traded for Houston Texans pass rusher Charles Omenihu, who is tied for third on the team with two sacks (Drake Jackson also has two) and second to defensive end Nick Bosa with six quarterback hits this season.

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Feb 18

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Deciphering the 49ers' Brandon Aiyuk Conundrum: Extend Or Trade?

By John Porter
Feb 22

A 49ers team, coming off a heartbreaking, close Super Bowl loss to a Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs, faces several tough salary cap decisions, including whether to extend one of their youngest and most talented players. If you feel like you've been here before, it's because you have. Back in March 2020, roughly around the time the global economy closed down for a while, the 49ers traded DT DeForest Buckner to the Colts for a first-round pick, in lieu of extending him, allowing them to draft his replacement in the following draft (South Carolina's Javon Kinlaw), and extend a few other key players in Arik Armstead and Jimmie Ward. Fast forward to 2024, and the same conversations are now taking place over Brandon Aiyuk, as the decision over whether to extend the young WR
