Schefter: Deebo Samuel won't participate in 49ers' offseason programs
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is not expected to participate in the team's on-field offseason programs, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
According to Schefter, Samuel is one of three 2019 second-round picks who will not participate in team drills until he receives a new contract from the 49ers. The WR market has exploded this offseason, starting with Christian Kirk inking a 4-year, $72 million deal with Jacksonville before more high-profile weapons received lucrative extensions. With the NFL Draft just 9 days away, any sort of contract disgruntlement could be a factor in the trade market. Keep an eye out on any updates for Samuel as he the offseason rolls on.
In 16 games last season, Samuel had 77 catches for 1,405 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also had 59 carries for 365 yards and 8 more scores, averaging 18.2 FanDuel points per game.
