Report: Aiyuk and 49ers do not close contract negotiations originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

A Brandon Aiyuk contract extension does not appear to be on the horizon for the 49ers. At least not yet.

San Francisco has been in negotiations with the star receiver over a lucrative contract extension that is expected to pay him at or near the top of the market. However, nothing seems imminent.

“This is complicated because he was involved in some trade negotiations surrounding the draft. He wants a new contract; he has one year left. I’m told the 49ers are certainly open to a deal, but the talks have not progressed enough to things are.” close,” Fowler said. “And so, will he show up to his workouts? It’s hard to know at this point. The market is quite defined for him. Amon-Ra St. Brown in Detroit made that deal recently, about $28 million a year. So, that’s something Aiyuk and the 49ers can work on, but I’m told they’re not there yet.”

Organized team activities (OTAs) begin this week in Santa Clara, and as Fowler points out, it’s unclear if Aiyuk will attend voluntary practices.

Aiyuk was the topic of many business discussions Before the 2024 NFL Draft, and when he was ultimately not moved, 49ers general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear that plans to move forward with Aiyuk and fellow star receiver Deebo Samuel on the roster while Continue negotiations with Aiyuk..

And if history is any indicator, San Francisco and Aiyuk could continue negotiating a contract extension well into the summer and possibly into training camp.
