A new report suggests Brandon Aiyuk and the San Francisco 49ers might finally be coming into the same neighborhood on getting a deal done.

In an appearance on KNBR 680’s “Papa & Lund” show Thursday, Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle said the 49ers’ current offer to Aiyuk falls somewhere around $26 million. That would put him close to the $28 million Amon-Ra St. Brown got from the Detroit Lions, though still a bit short of that figure.

“I’m hearing their offer is in the $26-million range, which certainly is not Justin Jefferson money, nor should it be, but it’s closer to that DeVonta Smith, Amon-Ra St. Brown, that next tier down,” Silver said, via Taylor Wirth of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Previous reports have indicated that Aiyuk is looking to match St. Brown’s contract. If that is the case, the two sides are only a couple million apart, but not there yet.

Aiyuk is currently holding out while seeking a pay raise from the $14 million he is owed on the last year of his rookie contract. He is still working out on his own after catching 75 passes for 1,342 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
