Brandon Aiyuk Unfollows 49ers On Social Media Amid Contract Dispute

Brandon Aiyuk is in the midst of contract dispute with the San Francisco 49ers and based on his latest social media activity, the negotiations don’t seem to be going well.

The All-Pro wide receiver unfollowed his team of four years on Instagram, as NFL Network’s Clayton Holloway noticed Friday:

It’s pretty common for a player to do things like this as a sign of their displeasure with their team.

Aiyuk is entering the fifth-year option of his rookie contract as a first-rounder in the 2020 NFL Draft. He is due a fully guaranteed salary of $14.1 million, with the same figure as his salary cap number. He will be able to hit unrestricted free agency next offseason, with the 49ers able to franchise tag him if he doesn’t sign a deal.
