49ers’ latest Brandon Aiyuk contract offer in $26M range – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

The impasse between the 49ers and star receiver Brandon Aiyuk continues and a resolution does not appear imminent.

As long as the two sides remain as far apart as they appear in contract extension negotiations.

How far away are they exactly? Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle provided an update on the 49ers’ latest offer to Aiyuk during an appearance on KNBR 680’s “Papa & Lund” on Thursday.

“I heard their offer was in the range of $26 million, which is definitely not Justin Jefferson money, and it shouldn’t be, but it’s closer to DeVonta Smith’s, Amon-Ra St. Brown’s, the next level,” Silver said. said.

If true, the $26 million per year average is still lower than Brown’s $28 million per year contract with the Lions — a benchmark Aiyuk would like to surpass — and even further below what Jeremy Fowler of ESPN believes Aiyuk’s value could be.

“So Brandon Aiyuk is the biggest one,” Fowler said Saturday on SportsCenter. “We know what the wide receiver market is now. It’s probably $30 million and up. And Aiyuk is currently considered a top 10 receiver by most players in the league.

“Both sides had negotiations, but they didn’t really come to anything where it was going to get done and it escalated. So they had the next six weeks over the summer before camp ‘training to try to do it, otherwise he might not show up based on the fact that he didn’t show up to minicamp as a previous one.

However, Aiyuk’s personal wide receivers coach, TJ Houshmandzadeh, told 95.7 The Game’s “Willard & Dibs” on Thursday that Aiyuk would have agreed to terms if the 49ers had offered him the same deal as the four-year contract of Brown, worth $120 million.

If so, the two sides appear to be at an impasse over the $2 million average annual salary.
