Brandon Aiyuk is looking to move on from the Amon-Ra St. Brown deal

Brandon Aiyuk is looking to move on from the Amon-Ra St. Brown deal

Negotiations on a contract extension with Brandon Aiyuk have gone nowhere for the San Francisco 49ers.

They usually play hardball most of the offseason. It’s been that way for a long time with George Kittle, but especially the last couple of years with Deebo Samuel and Nick Bosa. Now, it’s Aiyuk’s turn to take that on, and he’ll have to hunker down after it’s revealed what kind of deal he’s after.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Aiyuk looks to move on from a trade for Detroit Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.

“I’ve been told that the standard here is Amun-Ra Saint Brown,” Fowler said. “He’s getting $28 million a year for four years from Detroit. The goal seems to be to try to get around that. He’s not necessarily the highest-paid player in the league, but he’s done enough and he’s accomplished enough at that.” The offense to where it probably needs to be at that number or higher.”

If Aiyuk is truly looking to move on from St. Brown, he will be waiting a long time for a deal. The 49ers giving Aiyuk a better deal than St. Louis. Brown is inexcusable. Aiyuk may be coming off an All-Pro season, but St. Brown has been doing it longer at a high level.

Not to mention that Aiyuk’s influence and usage compared to St. Brown’s is not the same. The 49ers certainly want to extend Aiyuk, but they may need to be realistic about his number considering he’s not even the best option on offense.
