It looks like fans loyal to the San Francisco 49ers brand aren’t happy with star wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who is outraged by the organization and wishes for a pay increase in the near future.
Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Samuel is believed to be seeking an extension worth $25 million annually, which would make him among the NFL’s highest-paid receivers.
While Michael Irwin and others have advised Samuel to stay in San Francisco for as long as he can (coach Kyle Shanahan has always maximized his skill-positioning talent), the recent explosion in wide receiver money presents a unique opportunity.
Samuel and the 49ers appear too far into negotiating a contract extension for the fourth-year receiver.
On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that San Francisco is prepared to continue talks in good faith, but Samuel has put the process on hold.
Samuel made headlines by scouring his Instagram account of all things 49ers-related. He is not in Santa Clara with his teammates, who reported on Tuesday the start of the 49ers’ off-season schedule.
It’s been quite a few months for pigskin-snuggers, with largely new contracts rolling in, blockbuster deals and the attention of the football world in basically every news cycle.
The latest development comes via San Francisco 49ers playmaker Deebo Samuel, who has requested a trade.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a juicy off season story this is! A top-tier talent, who is completely in his prime, reportedly wants to step out due to discomfort with his unique use.

Samuel, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, told ESPN’s Jeff Darlington that he has asked the 49ers to trade him.
Samuel declined to offer specific reasons for requesting trade but acknowledged that he had informed the team of his desire to leave.
It has become an increasingly turbulent relationship between the two sides following Samuel’s breakout 2021 season. In recent weeks, Samuel has removed any of the 49ers from his Instagram account.
