Kyle Shanahan wants Brandon Aiyuk to earn his spot back, says receiver isn't in 49ers' doghouse

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning and threw cold water on the heated rumors that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is in his doghouse. The second-year player had an impressive rookie campaign last season, and high expectations prefaced his sophomore NFL season. In Week 1, Aiyuk split playing time with Trent Sherfield and wasn't targeted against the Detroit Lions. It had nothing to do with the young receiver being in Shanahan's doghouse, though. The coach wanted to dispel those rumors and once again explain Aiyuk's reduced role. "No. It's not a doghouse. It's just a pretty simple thing," Shanahan said. "Trent Sherfield has played at a very high level every single day for the entire training camp. Aiyuk

Last week, George Kittle became the recipient of the first-ever Dwight Clark Legacy Award, an honor presented to a San Francisco 49ers player who best exemplifies the late receiver's spirit of teamwork. The award was presented to Kittle during an event at the Concord Pavilion and featured several 49ers greats. All the proceeds went to benefit the Golden Heart Fund, a charitable organization created by the team to help players transition from NFL careers to their next phases in life. Kittle had a chance to speak with Clark's family members, with Clark's 21-year-old son offering a message to San Francisco's All-Pro tight end. He said that Kittle reminded him of how his father used to play the



Why Kyle Shanahan feels the 2021 49ers O-line may be his best yet

The offensive line for the San Francisco 49ers hasn't been a huge focus for the team since Kyle Shanahan arrived as the head coach in 2017. In fact, the team has only drafted two offensive lineman within the first four rounds of the draft over the past five years: RT Mike McGlinchey in 2018 and G Aaron Banks this year in the second round. However, the team has made significant strides in other moves to improve the offensive line, trading a third and a fifth round pick for star LT Trent Williams during last year's draft before signing him to an extension this offseason, and picking up Alex Mack as the starting center this offseason as well. With Shanahan's run/play-action oriented offense, a strong offensive line is necessary to work both the edges
