Brandon Aiyuk Unfollows Niners On Social Media

Friday, April 12, 10:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk remains without a long-term contract. While general manager John Lynch indicated that the team doesn't have plans to trade the wideout, the relationship between both sides doesn't appear to be moving in a positive direction. He has already been open about his desire to earn big money. However, in the most recent development in the situation, it was discovered that Aiyuk unfollowed the 49ers' account on the social media platform Instagram. This isn't the first time a player has done this kind of thing. Yet, it's still not an ideal scenario for a club hoping to make it back to the Super Bowl. Aiyuk is coming off his best season since entering the league in 2020, amassing 1,342 yards and seven touchdowns off 75 catches. With numbers like that, the Niners will need to pay in order to keep him on the roster for years to come. The 26-year-old is due to make just over $14 million during the 2024-25 campaign.

Garrett Wilson Says He's Fine

Monday, January 8, 12:17 PM

New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson (neck, elbow), who suffered a neck injury in the Week 18 win over the New England Patriots in the regular season finale on Sunday, said he is fine. Wilson also said he doesn't think he needs surgery for an elbow injury that he dealt with all year. The 23-year-old was believed to have suffered a head injury when he took a hard hit in Sunday's contest, but he avoided any kind of serious injury and will have a normal offseason as he heads into his third NFL season. Despite losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a torn Achilles in Week 1, Wilson finished with 95 catches for 1,042 yards and three touchdowns in 2023. His 168 targets ranked fourth among all wideouts. With more stability under center hopefully in 2024, the sky is the limit for Wilson.
