Deebo Samuel will soon be getting back to work for the 49ers.

Samuel, the star wide receiver who has been sitting out training camp practices while negotiating a new contract, has agreed to a three-year extension, according to multiple reports.

It’s reportedly worth $71.55 million, including $58.1 million guaranteed. Although the full structure of the contract is not yet out, the topline numbers are almost identical to the three-year, $72 million contract DK Metcalf just signed with the Seahawks.

Samuel is coming off an outstanding season in which he caught 77 passes for 1,405 yards and led the league with an average of 18.2 yards per catch, while also running the ball 59 times for 365 yards and eight touchdowns. The 49ers want to build a big-play offense around new starting quarterback Trey Lance, and they think Samuel and Lance are going to be a great combination for years to come.

  1. This is a bad deal for Deebo.
    The way he plays, this will be his last big deal. Injuries are going to get him. He’s my favorite player but just like Kittle–these guys play the game the way it’s supposed to. Hard and fast. Makes for shorter careers though, sadly.

  2. Good move for the 49ers. That’s less than what Tyreek Hill got and for my money, I’m taking Deebo over him over the next few years.

    Now they should get working on Bosa. If only there was a large cap hit player who they don’t plan on playing who they can cut to open space…

  3. Deebo Samuel had 1770 yards from scrimmage and scored 16 TDs in 2021. The Chargers’ Austin Ekeler had 1558 yards from scrimmage and scored 20 TDs. Deebo gets a lot of press and is getting paid for his accomplishments. Ekeler is his equal, but doesn’t get his press, or his money.

  4. I don’t know if teams really seen that production coming from Deebo last season. Besides Kittle, he’s really the only other threat on this team of doing damage. I think he’s targeted more this year by defenses, and they know what to look for now when he’s moved around the field. The difference is Metcalf can impose his will and strength on you and make the play no matter what, Deebo is more of you didnt see it coming player. Now everyone will see it coming and not much else on that O to scare you.

  5. Tory Dandy strikes again!!! That is a lot of money. Deebo will hit free agency again in like 3 years. Tory Dandy gets money from DK, Deebo, and AJ contracts. Life must be good.

  6. “Besides Kittle, he’s really the only other threat on this team of doing damage.”

    Tell me that you don’t watch the 49ers without telling me that you don’t watch the 49ers.

  7. His numbers are about to take a colossal hit with their quarterback playing running back the whole game. The 49ers/Samuels are going to regret having a running back trying to command the offense.

  8. 20 mil per for a guy who runs the ball as much as he does? Great for Samuel, very risky for SF.

    Lynch had no leverage and the 49ers will struggle in the upcoming seasons due to some really bad contracts and Trey Lance at qb.

  9. Soon to be telling Shanahan and Lynch when/if/how he wants to be used. The tail will be wagging the dog soon enough.

  10. I am so happy that Clara payed this guy. It’s players like Deebo that destroy a franchise from within.

  11. I hear a lot of Niner haters on this string. Gonna find out bout dem Niners. This team is well built. Mitchell looking to have a big year. Aiyuk will be improved. Trey Sermon will be improved. The Niners have more than enough underrated talent draw from.

    But can Ekeler line up outside?
