Brandon Aiyuk hopes to remain with 49ers for a long time but understands the NFL is a business

In the fall, Brandon Aiyuk will be entering his fourth NFL season. Thanks to the fifth-year option, the San Francisco 49ers can hold onto him through 2024. Right now, the team is likely focused on locking up NFL Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner Nick Bosa to a long-term contract. Aiyuk's time will come, though. If it were up to Aiyuk, he wouldn't ever play anywhere else. However, the receiver understands how the NFL works. It is a business, and he has to ensure his family is provided for. "Me personally, I love being here in The Bay," Aiyuk told Brad Graham of TheSFNiners. "I love playing. I love being a Forty-Niner." And the 49ers would love to keep him. This season, Aiyuk



Brandon Aiyuk: 49ers were "hands down" the best team in the NFL

You can argue that the San Francisco 49ers were the most talented of the four teams on Championship Weekend. One Niners player believes that to be the case. Luck just wasn't on their side against the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Brock Purdy exited the game with a UCL tear, and his backup, Josh Johnson, was forced out with a concussion in the second half. Purdy returned to the game, but the injury prevented him from throwing. So, lacking a quarterback who could throw the football, it was run, run, and run some more for much of the game. "Man, it was tough. It was weird," wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk told Brad Graham of TheSFNiners. "It was definitely a weird situation. I've never been in any

Brock Purdy proved a lot during his rookie NFL season. He clearly belongs in the league. The San Francisco 49ers lost two starting quarterbacks this season. Purdy, once QB3, stepped in, and the team didn't skip a beat. San Francisco won 12 consecutive games entering the NFC Championship Game. Purdy was under center for eight of those games, helming the offense since Jimmy Garoppolo exited a Week 13 matchup against the Miami Dolphins with a broken foot. Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk admits he didn't know what to think after Purdy replaced Garoppolo. Could the 49ers push forward with yet another quarterback change? Then Purdy and the 49ers handily beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, and the receiver knew they would be fine. The 49ers

Brandon Aiyuk, like so many fans, wonders how the NFC Championship Game might have turned out had the San Francisco 49ers not lost their third- and fourth-string quarterbacks—the only two available—to injuries in the game. Rookie Brock Purdy suffered a torn UCL in the first quarter and could not throw the football. His backup, Josh Johnson, exited in the third quarter due to a concussion. Aiyuk has little doubt that if Purdy had never suffered his injury, it might have been the 49ers, not the Philadelphia Eagles, preparing for Super Bowl 57. "We literally just played a football game for pretty much a half a football with no quarterback," Aiyuk shared this week
