The San Francisco 49ers have lost the Super Bowl for the second time in the past five seasons. With their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs (again) on Sunday, the 49ers’ Super Bowl drought is extended to 29 years. Despite having All-Pro’s at every skill position on offense, they simply could not get it done against a stout Chiefs defense.
While the 49ers’ offense is still relatively young, led by quarterback Brock Purdy, there obviously will be changes and tough decisions made in the offseason. They cannot expect to remain stagnant when what they have was not enough to win on the NFL’s biggest stage.
And one wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk, may make some decisions even more difficult, at least if what his girlfriend said is true.
Brandon Aiyuk’s Girlfriend Claims He May Not Return to the San Francisco 49ers Next Season
Brandon Aiyuk was named Second Team All-Pro this season after posting 75 receptions for 1,342 yards and seven touchdowns. Still on a rookie contract, the 49ers made the decision prior to the 2023 season to exercise his fifth-year option for 2024.
However, Aiyuk’s girlfriend seems to indicate that their decision to exercise that option may not be enough to keep him in the Bay Area:

Aiyuk’s on a fifth-year option, and not a free agent 🤔

“It might be the last time we step foot at Levi’s cause we might not be here next season”
It is interesting that she would say that because, as mentioned, Aiyuk’s fifth year option was picked up. Is the star wide receiver going to try to force a trade? He was in the car with her when she filmed and posted the video, so one must assume that he was complicit in everything that she said.
His fifth-year option is worth $14.1 million, which is more money than he made over the first four years of his career. One would also have to assume that he would not pass up making that much money by holding out. If he is looking for a contract extension, however, that may help the 49ers free up some much-needed salary cap space.
Perhaps this is post-Super Bowl loss frustration, but it is certainly a situation to monitor as the offseason begins.
