Dante Pettis took 'a number of steps forward' as a receiver, says Kyle Shanahan

Third-year wide receiver Dante Pettis acknowledged that last season didn't go as he had hoped. He has accepted much of the blame for his performance. Right now, the San Francisco 49ers wideout is focused on this season, and last month shared his goals for 2020. And they don't include passing yards, touchdowns, or any other statistical feat. "To play free, without anything holding me back," Pettis said. "... Going in every day, and getting to a point to where, coming into practice or the weight room or whatever, getting to a point to where I know that I got better ...

They had another rookie wideout, Deebo Samuel, who would later prove to be a gem for the team's offense, but at the time things were looking less than hopeful for the 49ers' chances of making significant strides toward a playoff appearance. In an effort to boost the receiver room last season, the 49ers brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos, and it had a magical effect on the other wideouts for the rest of the
