Over the past week or so, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has been challenging the wide receiver group. As mentioned previously, there is a certain 2018 second-round pick that Shanahan’s comments seemed to be directed at. The Athletic’s Matt Barrows recently addressed the topic in his mailbag. The question was, “Has Dante Pettis regressed, and why?” Here is what Barrows had to say:
No, Pettis definitely hasn’t regressed. In fact, he’s better than he was last year at this time because he knows the system so much better. But Kyle Shanahan clearly wants him to make a more significant leap forward.
