Deebo Samuel is out there breaking the hearts of San Francisco 49ers fans everywhere.
If there was any glimmer of hope that Deebo Samuel wanted to stay with the San Francisco 49ers, he completely shatters that notion as he celebrates at the club.
You can smell the alcohol through the screen, but Samuel dismissed the idea of him coming back in this video. People partied like a reigning Heisman Trophy winner returning to school for his senior season. The camera quickly panned to the man of the hour. He pretty much did on video what Julio Jones did on the phone when he broke up with the Atlanta Falcons Undisputed.
Samuel is in the final year of his 49ers’ rookie contract after being drafted from South Carolina.

There are a few components that made Samuel want to leave San Francisco. He obviously wants a new contract, but his role as a wide receiver who can carry the ball out of the backfield has led to an interesting question about how to pay for it. His former offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel is gone, and there’s a belief Samuel wants to play closer to home.
The Inman, South Carolina native could attract interest from teams like the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers and even the New York Jets in the trade market. Atlanta and Carolina are within driving distance of his hometown. As far as Gang Green is concerned, the Jets are run by former 49ers defense coordinator Robert Saleh, so he has a connection to that staff over there.
While the 49ers have all options in this situation, it’s hard to imagine Samuel wanting to return to Santa Clara for his fourth NFL season. With the NFL draft fast approaching, the 49ers will need to act quickly if they want to receive pick compensation this year as opposed to next year. Samuel can add great value to any number of teams, but this clock strikes midnight.
Though he’s keen to leave San Francisco, Samuel may not be traded until later this summer.
