Breaking News: 49ers’ have reach agreement with Aiyuk Trade

San Francisco 49ers wideout Brandon Aiyuk is entering the final year of his rookie contract and had an interesting answer for reporters back in February when asked if he planned to remain with the team.

“If that’s the right move, yeah,” he said, adding that the right move would be “being a champion.”

That opened up speculation and eventually rumors that he could potentially be a trade option for the Niners this offseason if the two sides don’t lock down a long-term extension, though his teammate, Deebo Samuel, believes he’ll return to the team.

“Yeah, I love that guy,” he said during Wednesday’s Up and Adams show (9:00 mark). “I don’t see him leaving, though. I don’t see him leaving.”

 

“If you look at his numbers from when he got to the league and now, it’s always a different type of leap,” he continued. “And so, like I told him, I said, ‘Hey, man, you put yourself in a position to be where you want to be.’ He’s up for a new deal and things like that. And I just told him, because I’ve been through it, it’s not going to be all fine and dandy like you think it’s going to be. You’ve got to stay the course.”

Aiyuk, 25, had a career year in 2023, catching 75 passes for 1,342 yards and seven scores. He’s emerged as one of the league’s top weapons at wide receiver, and the Niners are a nightmare for opposing defenses with him, Samuel, Christian McCaffrey and George Kittle.

For now, however, Aiyuk’s future with the team seems to be in some doubt.
