Deebo Samuel’s trainer says the receiver is “about to get paid”

49ers linebacker Fred Warner said Monday he is confident Deebo Samuel‘s contract dispute with the team will get worked out soon. Maybe Warner knows something.

Samuel’s trainer posted a video on social media Tuesday, and, with Samuel next to him, says, “He about to get paid.”

As David Lombardi of TheAthletic.com noted, it’s “yet another indication that Samuel’s contractual status with the 49ers is headed in a very positive direction.”

Samuel became eligible for an extension after the 2021 season, and the lack of progress in negotiations with the 49ers this offseason prompted him to ask for a trade. He has outplayed the $3.986 million in base salary he is due in 2022, the final season of his rookie contract.

Samuel had 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns in earning All-Pro honors last season, and he added a passing touchdown.

  1. San Francisco is about to be the next in line to learn a painful lesson about overpaying a running back.

  2. Last year, Deebo had more receiving yards, more yards per reception and more rushing yards than Tyreek Hill.

    Deebo can do it all…….at least until he breaks.

  3. Hopefully Deebo doesn’t throttle it down a coupe notches after getting paid. A lot of players do. I have no problem paying Samuel a lot of money. He’s awesome. This is also a great example of why NFL contracts can’t be guaranteed. If a player outperforms his contract, the team pays him more. If the player underperforms, he doesn’t give the money back. Any type of deal or contract has to be fair to both sides. Especially with a salary cap. If you get stuck with a big contract for a guy who isn’t performing, then you don’t have money left over for the great players like Deebo Samuel.

    This is about the stupidest comment I’ve seen in a while. Samuel had 1400 receiving yards and lead the league in YPC.
    He’s very much a pretty good WR. Niners don’t pay their RBs much at all.

  6. Pay loads of money to catch the ball and have no one to throw that ball. Sounds brilliant.

  7. About to be over paid. Deebo is great at what he is. Problem is he already stated he was not going to play the same role anymore and run nearly as much. Considering he is an average WR at best and does not want to be beat down like last year, when they pay him a huge contract he is not going to do the one thing he was best at which is run in such an aggressive way. He will be getting paid for last year and does not need to do it anymore. Big mistake…. All players should be paid on a performance base contract. Just like all employees should bepaid based on production and output.

  8. When his numbers fall greatly this year. After he stops being the so called wide back most of the time. I hope all of the 49ers fans come back here and admit they were wrong. Won’t happen but his numbers will fall.
