Kyle Shanahan Was Asked If The 49ers Will Make Any More Trades Before Deadline

The San Francisco 49ers pulled off the biggest NFL trade of the season when they acquired running back Christian McCaffrey from the Carolina Panthers.

Could they still be looking to add a player or two prior to Tuesday?

Head coach Kyle Shanahan at least left the door open to the possibility.

Shanahan was asked Monday whether the team is finished making moves. While he said the roster is "pretty set," he added that "until the deadline, we're always listening." 

"I think we're pretty set," Kyle Shanahan said. "I'd be surprised if anything goes down, But until the deadline, we're always listening."

The 49ers gave up a lot of draft capital for McCaffrey, sending the Panthers picks in the second, third and fourth rounds in 2023 plus a 2024 fifth-rounder. That figures to hurt their ability to trade for another player this week.

However, even if they don't make any more trades, the 49ers could still add a big name to their offense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter brought up the possibility of free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. signing with the 49ers on Monday. The 49ers tried to trade for Beckham last season. Beckham is reportedly eyeing a mid-November return to football after tearing his ACL during the Super Bowl.

Whether or not they add any more players, the 49ers proved that they should be considered a Super Bowl contender this season with a 31-14 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
