Brandon Aiyuk claims 49ers ‘don’t want me back’ in viral social media post – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

Brandon Aiyuk appears to be providing an ominous update on the status of his contract extension negotiations with the 49ers.

In a video he posted to his TikTok account on Monday morning with the caption, “I’m laughing but I’m crying [for real]”, Aiyuk was seen talking to Washington Commanders rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels on FaceTime.

“What happened man?” Daniels asked Aiyuk while watching one of the receiver’s highlights during the 49ers’ Week 11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“They said they didn’t want me back… I swear,” Ayuk said in response.

Negotiations between Aiyuk and the 49ers appear to have stalled after San Francisco reportedly offered the star receiver an on-field contract worth $26 million per year, which is $2 million less than Amon-Ra St. Mark’s mark. Brown, the Detroit Lions’ $28 million per wide receiver last year, is reportedly targeting Aiyuk’s threshold.

Daniels was Aiyuk’s starting quarterback at Arizona State in 2019 and the two appear to have developed a close relationship over the years.
