John Lynch and the San Francisco 49ers have found themselves in plenty of trade rumors this offseason, many involving star WR Deebo Samuel.

The former South Carolina star has requested a trade and seems to be unhappy with his role as a hybrid wide receiver/running back.

But, ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft in late April, Samuel wasn’t traded, and he’s still a member of the 49ers. Speaking on Wednesday night, Lynch said he has no plans to trade the star receiver:

“We haven’t traded him and I’d be a fool to trade him,” Lynch said. “So yes, Deebo will be part of the 49ers this season.”

In 2021, Samuel recorded 77 catches for 1,405 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also ran the ball 59 times for 365 yards and 8 scores. Every single number in the previous sentence was a career-high for Samuel.
