Good News: Just In Fomer Super Bowl Finalist Superstar Confirm He Wants To Joins Washington Commanders

**Brandon Aiyuk Lists Washington Commanders Among Top Choices if He Leaves 49ers**

San Francisco 49ers star wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has two main options: securing a contract extension with his current team or being traded. The Washington Commanders are high on his list of preferred destinations, primarily due to his friendship with Commanders rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels, a fact Aiyuk recently confirmed.

During an appearance on *The Pivot*, Aiyuk mentioned the teams he would like to join if the 49ers do not extend his contract, which is entering its fifth year.

“If not a Niners uniform, probably a Washington Commanders uniform,” Aiyuk said. “If not a Washington Commanders uniform, probably a Steelers uniform.”


The 26-year-old wide receiver has had a successful first four seasons in the NFL, with his performance in the last two seasons prompting his demand for a new contract. Aiyuk has posted two consecutive 1,000-plus receiving-yard seasons and has scored 25 career touchdowns, 15 of which came in the past two seasons.

Aiyuk expressed enthusiasm about the potential of playing with Daniels, saying, “There’s a quarterback right there. I’m thinking about what I can do with him. If the Niners don’t want me to come back to play with them, I’m thinking about what I can do. I know what I can do.”

Last season, Aiyuk recorded 1,342 receiving yards with Brock Purdy as the 49ers’ quarterback. Pairing with wide receivers like Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson, Aiyuk could significantly benefit Daniels, who is expected to have a strong rookie season.

The speculation around Aiyuk’s future intensified after he told Daniels on a phone call that the 49ers “don’t want” him, followed by comments under an Instagram post suggesting he thought the team was not considering trading him.

Whether Aiyuk gets an extension or a trade will be an interesting development to watch, especially with his connections to Daniels and the Commanders, and his expressed interest in the Steelers.
