Should the Falcons consider making this offer for Brandon Aiyuk?

Brandon Aiyuk has fallen out of favor with Kyle Shanahan.

You know what they say about one man’s trash. I’m not sure what’s going on behind the scenes in San Francisco, but Aiyuk is a very logical target for the Falcons at this point in the season. With the trade deadline only a week away, the Falcons could add to a receiving corps that badly needs an injection of youth and talent.

It was nice to have Russell Gage back this week, and Calvin Ridley is still producing at times. Still, Aiyuk is a versatile piece that Arthur Smith could scheme into an offense that’s finally starting to click. You can’t deny Aiyuk’s athletic prowess, and he’s the burner that the Falcons need on the offense. If his fifth-year option is exercised, the former first-round pick has three years left on his contract, and now would be the right time to buy low on him. Offering the 49ers a third, fourth, or fifth-round pick could give the Falcons an immediate playmaker that helps them now and in the future.
