In fact, fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne believes Aiyuk will be a big reason why the 49ers will make their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance.

San Jose-area photographer Pierre Whitsey snapped some fantastic photos of Bourne working out with others at San Jose State on Tuesday, according to the date on the gallery.
