Shanahan added GM John Lynch has taken a “number of calls” about trading Pettis, but said that nothing is imminent at this point in time, per Eric Branch

Pettis has been inactive in the past few weeks and has yet to register a catch this season. 

It’s been clear for some time now that Pettis was likely to be on the outs in San Francisco, so it’s unlikely they would be able to get more than a late-round pick for him. 

Pettis, 25, is a former second-round pick of the 49ers back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $6,440,562 contract that included a $2,734,952 signing bonus with the 49ers.

Pettis stands to make base salaries of $961,870 and $1,252,805 over the final two years of the agreement. 

For his career, Pettis has appeared in 27 games for the 49ers and caught 38 passes for 576 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Pettis as the news is available.
