Brandon Aiyuk appeared to provide an ominous update on the state of his contract extension negotiations with the San Francisco 49ers.

In a video posted to his TikTok account Monday morning with the caption "I'm laughing but I'm crying [for real]," Aiyuk is seen talking to Washington Commanders rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels on FaceTime.

"What happened, man?" Daniels asked Aiyuk while watching one of the wide receiver's highlights during the 49ers' Week 11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"They said they don't want me back ... I swear," Aiyuk said in response.

Negotiations between Aiyuk and the 49ers appear to have stalled after San Francisco reportedly offered the star wide receiver a contract in the ballpark of $26 million annually, which is $2 million shy of Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown's mark of $28 million per year, a threshold Aiyuk reportedly is targeting.

Daniels was Aiyuk's quarterback at Arizona State in 2019 and the two appear to have developed a close bond over the years.
