Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers, reportedly agree on massive contract extension
Deebo Samuel is getting set to be in San Francisco for several more years.
The former South Carolina star and the 49ers have reportedly agreed on a “massive contract extension,” Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported. It was expected that Samuel’s new deal would mirror a recent extension for Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf, who signed a three-year extension with the Seahawks on Friday. The deal will pay him up to $72 million, includes $58 million guaranteed.
Samuel’s deal is reportedly 3 years and $71.55 million, including $58.1 million guaranteed.
Sources: The #49ers and star weapon Deebo Samuel are in agreement on a massive contract extension, keeping him in SF for the foreseeable future. The drama is over, the bridge is rebuilt.

Samuel in April requested a trade from the 49ers. At the time, Samuel, who is entering the final year of the rookie deal he signed after being drafted in the second round in 2019, saw the exploding market of receiver contracts.
Samuel was set to be paid nearly $4 million this season after being a first-team All-Pro in 2021. Eight receivers have gotten new contracts this offseason worth at least $18 million a year, including Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams after trades from their old teams, the Associated Press reported.
