Kyle Shanahan plans for six wide receivers, one with special teams value

Remember when I said the 49ers might have some hard decisions to make at wide receiver? Remember when I said that they might burn other roster spots to have seven wide receivers because they don’t want any of these guys to go away?

Well, the 49ers still have hard decisions to make, but it’s for the wrong reasons. The wide receivers haven’t exactly done much to separate themselves, at least to where deciding on keeping seven is in the conversation. In his conference call Tuesday, Kyle Shanahan indicated that six is still the magic number.
