49ers GM John Lynch Gives Brandon Aiyuk Update Amid Trade Speculation


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said the team is having “good talks” with All-Pro wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and the two sides are “working through” a plan to keep him “for the rest of his career amid trade speculation.


“With B.A., I’ve communicated on many occasions: Our wish is that he’s here as part of the Niners for the rest of his career,” Lynch said via the Mercury News.


The Pro Football Hall of Fame safety then said he preferred to keep negotiations private out of respect to the players involved.


“We’re having good talks, and I’m just going to leave it at that,” Lynch said via the Mercury News. “We’ll focus on the draft here today.”


Last week, Aiyuk’s agent, Ryan Williams, denied that his client requested a trade in a post shared on his X account.


“You need better sources,” Williams wrote in response to blogger John Fracella’s report that Aiyuk “requested a trade from the 49ers,” citing “confirmation from my San Francisco source.”


Last month, 49ers general manager Lynch, 52, said Ayiuk, 26, would not be available for a trade as the team was discussing a new contract with him during the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. The general manager broke his silence after Aiyuk acknowledged his frustration about entering the final year of his rookie deal during the Niners’ exit interviews in February, noting that Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin asked him “what’s going on” in relation to the apparent disgruntled receiver.


“[Tomlin] is like, ‘Bro, what’s going on,'” Lynch said, laughing. “I promise you nothing’s going on there. We’re actively talking with Brandon trying to figure something out. We have a good history of working with the guys we want to get done to get something done and it takes two sides. So, can we do that? We’ll see. There’s a number of different directions that it could go but we appreciate the heck out of Brandon and who he is as a player, and we want him to be a part of the Niners. We’re going to work towards making that a reality.”


Aiyuk spoke to reporters on February 13, two days after San Francisco’s Super Bowl LVIII loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and addressed his future with the team after his girlfriend, Rochelle Searight, and a former teammate both appeared to hint at a possible departure.
