San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk entered Week 14's contest against the Seattle Seahawks with 927 receiving yards on the season. He needed just 73 more to achieve something that no 49ers wideout has accomplished since 2014—recording back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.

Aiyuk secured the required yardage in the third quarter.


The last 49ers receiver to achieve consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards was Anquan Boldin, who accomplished the feat with 1,179 receiving yards in 2013 and 1,062 in 2014. Aiyuk is just the fifth 49ers player all-time to record back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.

Aiyuk, the 49ers' leading receiver, is in his fourth NFL season and entered Sunday's game with 244 receptions for 3,516 yards and 24 touchdowns in his career. Additionally, he had 13 carries for 117 yards and two rushing touchdowns.

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his

According to Sports Illustrated contributor Noah Strackbein, who writes for "All Steelers" on the network, there's a level of confidence within the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that they can strike a deal for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk—and at a bargain rate. "According to a team source, the Steelers and 49ers trade talks are real," Strackbein wrote. "While nothing is imminent, they 'would be surprised if it didn't happen.' But it all comes down to compensation, and Pittsburgh isn't willing to budge much on price." While it seems unlikely that the 49ers would part ways with Aiyuk for anything less than a first-round draft

Why one analyst is worried for Brock Purdy if 49ers trade Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy achieved a remarkable feat in 2023, setting a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. This accomplishment is noteworthy, considering the illustrious quarterbacks who have graced the organization's history. A significant portion of those yards came from wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who amassed a career-high and team-leading 1,342 receiving yards.

Amidst significant offseason chatter surrounding the 49ers' star receiver, including several unsubstantiated trade rumors, Aiyuk's future remains uncertain. Former NFL player James Jones, now an analyst, expressed concern for Purdy should Aiyuk's tenure in the Bay Area come to an end. "I
