Brandon Aiyuk UNFOLLOWS the 49ers on Instagram as wide receiver continues contract stand-off with team after career-best season

 

 

Brandon Aiyuk has apparently ramped up his efforts to get his desired payday from the 49ers, with the wide receiver unfollowing the team on social media.

Aiyuk, who led the team with a career-best 1,342 receiving yards last season, is seeking a long-term contract from San Francisco as he enters the fifth-year option of his rookie contract.

And that stand-off was escalated this week as he unfollowed the 49ers’ official Instagram account, as NFL Network’s Clayton Holloway spotted.

 

Last month, Aiyuk opened up on his contract discussions with the team, who lost to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII in February.

‘I’m trying to get what I deserve,’ Aiyuk said. ‘I feel like this season, this season playing football, I figured out who I was as a person and a player, what I bring to the table, what I bring to the locker room, what I bring to the organization. And just the value I hold when I walk in that building.

 

‘People going to follow me because I’ve done it the right way since I’ve been in that building. From the first day I walked in there to when I was in there earlier this morning. I’ve done it the right way.

He continued, ‘If they don’t see the worth in that [makes a walking motion with hands], that’s all it is. It ain’t nothing else besides that. I can’t get into it.

‘We got professionals working on both sides, so hopefully, we can come to a professional agreement and continue playing professional football.’

Aiyuk signed a four-year, $12.5million rookie contract with the 49ers after being drafted in 2020, and is guaranteed $14.1million under his fifth-year option this upcoming season.

He caught three balls for 49 yards in Super Bowl LVIII.
