The San Francisco 49ers and star wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk aren't close on a contract extension, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Aiyuk hasn't attended OTAs and isn't expected to participate in any voluntary team activities this offseason unless a deal is signed, Garafolo reports.

The 26-year-old was the subject of trade rumors leading up to the draft, but general manager John Lynch said earlier in May that the team is 'past' any trade discussions involving the wideout. Aiyuk also hasn't requested a trade, Garafolo adds.

Many high-profile wide receivers have received long-term contract extensions this offseason. Philadelphia Eagles wideout A.J. Brown became the highest-paid receiver in the league on draft weekend, signing a three-year, $96-million contract extension. Detroit Lions' Amon-Ra St.Brown also recently signed a massive deal, inking a four-year, $120-million extension.

The 49ers picked up Aiyuk's fifth-year option last offseason. He'll make $14.1 million this year and is set to become an unrestricted free agent next March.

San Francisco has $5.4 million in cap space and projects to be $23.3 million over the cap in 2025, according to Spotrac. The club is also bracing to sign quarterback Brock Purdy to an extension next offseason when he becomes eligible.

Aiyuk had a tremendous 2023 campaign, leading the team in targets (105), receptions (75), and receiving yards (1,342) to earn second-team All-Pro honors.

The Arizona State product has 3,931 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in 62 career games.
