Brandon Aiyuk is Circling Back on a Monday for a New Contract

Brandon Aiyuk is taking negotiations public via TikTok with Aiyuk telling former teammate Jayden Daniels that the 49ers do not want him back with them.

Brandon Aiyuk has made it publicly known that he either wants to get paid by the San Francisco 49ers or get traded to a team where he can get compensated to his liking. This is a topic that has moved to the front burner throughout the offseason only to be shelved and placed on the back burner as far as immediate attention. 

 

In a video of a facetime call with former college teammate Jayden Daniels, Aiyuk can be seen telling Daniels that the 49ers do not want him back. While the 49ers have listened to offers for both Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel, the team has not gotten offers to their liking.  

 

With a potential logjam for team building presenting itself, the 49ers created contingent value drafting Florida Gators wide receiver Ricky Pearsall in the first round. While Aiyuk’s number one priority is getting paid, the 49ers urgent priority may not involve succumbing to Aiyuk’s demands. 

 

Brandon Aiyuk currently goes in the early 2nd round on UnderDog and is our 16th ranked wide receiver in our Dynasty rankings. In 2023, Aiyuk was number 2 in yards per target (12.8) and yards per reception (17.9) and has had back-to-back 1,000 yard receiving seasons. Ricky Pearsall is going in round 12 on UnderDog and chances are that savvy Dynasty managers will raise the price on Ricky Pearsall. Ricky Pearsall is a hold in Dynasty and worth realizing his contingent value before you decide to cash out.
