After three years in San Francisco, Deebo Samuel wants out. Samuel put up a career year last season putting up 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and 6 touchdowns. So does San Francisco trade him? According to head coach Kyle Shannahan "nobody on the team is off limits for trade discussions". But it seems the 49ers front office have no intention of shopping Deebo out. Let's be honest though, your car isn't for sale is it? But someone comes along and offers you $200,000 for it, you would consider it wouldn't you? Let's just say the 49ers do start listening to trade offers, who could Deebo suit up for in 2022? Here are the teams that make the most sense to us:
5. Green Bay
The Packers lost arguably one of the top receivers in league this offseason to Oakland. Sure Deebo isn't Davante Addams but Deebo would compliment Allen Lazard and new acquisition Sammy Watkins pretty well giving Aaron Rodgers a three headed monster and a nightmare for the NFC North defenses.
With Calvin Ridley being suspended for the 2022 season, the Falcons are in desperate need for a top tier wide receiver. No doubt they'll draft one but Deebo Samuel would add another piece to the receiving core.
Justin Fields is going to need a top tier receiver at some point. He's going in to year two with Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle, and Equanimeous St. Brown. Needless to say they definitely need an ace for a receiver.
This one makes the most sense to me. Its out of the conference so the 49ers wouldn't have to play against him a lot and Indy needs a receiver to take the load off of Jonathon Taylor. Matt Ryan would get a stud at receiver too. With AJ Brown possibly on the move out of Tennessee, trading for Deebo Samuel would make Indy the clear favorite to win the AFC South.
1. San Francisco
There just isn't any way the 49ers trade him away. Jimmy G and the team would hurt without him. Take Deebo off that team and no way the 49ers have that deep run in the playoffs last year. San Francisco is going to have to open up their wallets to keep him but he is definitely worth the price.
