- Deebo Samuel’s future with the 49ers is still unsettled
- The star WR has yet to revoke his trade request according to a new report
- Samuel asked to be traded earlier this offseason, but SF is hoping to mend the relationship
The Deebo Samuel saga with the San Francisco 49ers continues on. The star wide receiver asked to be traded earlier this offseason amid contract negotiations.
Those negotiations have not yet come to a close as the end of Samuel’s rookie deal creeps closer.
The pass catcher was one of football’s most dynamic players last year, amassing 1,770 yards from scrimmage and scoring 14 touchdowns. He led the team in both rushing and receiving scores on his way to becoming a First-Team All-Pro.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t feel he’s being compensated for his services. Especially with the way that the 49ers have used him as both a receiver and running back. He scrubbed all social media affiliation with the team in April, leading fans to debate where he might end up next.
And with the wide receiver market going absolutely crazy this offseason, it could take a good chunk of change to keep Samuel in San Francisco.
While things looked to be headed in the right direction with Samuel showing up for the 49ers’ minicamp, a new report suggests that there’s still some uneasiness in the relationship.

According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Deebo Samuel has yet to revoke his previous trade request with the 49ers. Despite his showing for mandatory minicamp, the relationship between him and the team remains unsettled.

Samuel has still not hammered out a new contract with the Niners, and even teammate George Kittle agrees that the wideout needs to get paid, even if that means moving on from San Francisco.
The 49ers are hoping to hold on to Deebo Samuel and mend the now severed relationship. For now, though, his future in San Francisco is still uncertain.
