Deebo Samuel Gets Paid

NFL Offseason - The San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver Deebo Samuel have agreed on a three-year contract extension worth up to $73.5 million with $58.1 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

In 2021, Samuel became the first player in league history to gain 1,400 yards receiving and rush for eight touchdowns in the same season. The question now is whether he will still be used so much as a runner going forward. He had 53 carries in San Francisco's last eight regular-season games and 27 more in the playoffs, but has expressed concern about his ability to handle that kind of workload in the future.
