Deebo Samuel requests trade from San Francisco 49ers after breakout season

- Advertisment -


Deebo Samuel might have reached his breaking point with the San Francisco 49ers.

The All-Pro wide receiver has requested a trade from the team, he told ESPN’s Jeff Darlington on Wednesday.

Samuel, 26, told Darlington he did not want to disclose the specific motivations for his request but relayed them to the 49ers.

A second-round pick out of South Carolina in 2019, Samuel posted a breakout season last year, compiling 1,770 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns and establishing himself as one of the league’s most versatile offensive threats.

Samuel was not participating in the start of the 49ers’ voluntary offseason program, which began this week. He had been set to enter the final year of his contract and earn approximately $ 3.9 million in base salary in 2022.

Samuel’s request comes in an offseason in which several wide receivers have inked rich extensions, with Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams topping the market for the position after being traded to the Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders, respectively.
