After months of speculation, it looks like if the San Francisco 49ers can secure their star wide receiver.
According to multiple media outlets, the 49ers are giving Deebo Samuel a three-year, $71.55 million extension, NFL insiders, including Adam Schefter, tweeted on Sunday, July 31.
“The 49ers are giving Deebo Samuel a three-year, $71.55 million extension, including a guaranteed $58.1 million, according to sources,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted.
Schefter also asserts that the new deal has a “maximum value of up to $73.5 million.”
ESPN also notes that this means the All-Pro receiver can perform at the 49ers training camp starting Monday.
The upcoming season is the final year of rookie Samuel’s contract, but the sports world was startled when the receiver announced that he wanted to be traded from Bay in April, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN.
“He didn’t want to discuss the specific reasons behind his request, but he did let the 49ers know of his desire to leave the organization,” Darlington tweeted on April 20.

Samuel catches 77 passes for 1,405 yards in the 2021 season while leading the league with 18.2 yards per catch.
San Francisco picked Samuel by second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
