49ers face tough decisions with Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk’s contracts

Many believe having two amazing wide receivers such as Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk is a great offensive weapon for the Niners. While it is true, it also puts the franchise in a great dilemma with their contract situations.

After the Super Bowl LVIII, wide receiver Aiyuk have made it very clear that he wants a lucrative deal with the 49ers despite being receiver No. 2. The 49ers already have Samuel at $24 million annual salary, so if they give Aiyuk more than that, it would surpass their salary cap significantly. 

Given, that having these two-star receivers on the roster led the Niners straight to the Super Bowl as NFC champions, the 49ers wouldn’t want to compromise on that for next season, especially since the Kansas City Chiefs are targeting a three-peat. But with the contract drama, if the franchise fails to satisfy Aiyuk’s demand, he may land in another team as receiver No. 1.
