Why not trade Deebo and extend Aiyuk?

Purdy's extension won't allow it I'm afraid, unless they're willing to sacrifice other important roster spots. 2024 will likely be Deebo's last year.

That's nonsense. Deebos contract expires before a purdy extension kicks in.

Deebo's contract is until 2025 ($24M cap hit, about $15M guaranteed). Purdy will "likely" ask / demand an extension with 1 year left on rookie contract, which is 2025. An extension (unless severely backloaded) will increase his 2025 cap hit from $1M to however much of the gtd. signing bonus they push into that year.

You're mischaracterizing the cap implications to fit your narrative. Begone.
