Deebo Samuel among 49ers training with Adrian Peterson, hopes to get together with Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason

May 13, 2020 at 2:30 PM--

Deebo Samuel is among a contingent of players who are spending their offseason training in Houston with Washington running back Adrian Peterson, the San Francisco 49ers receiver told reporters on Wednesday via a video conference call.

Other teammates who are part of that group are offensive tackle Trent Williams and running back Jerick McKinnon.

"The guy that we're training with is Adrian Peterson and his trainer," Samuel shared. "And also, Trent Williams is out here. I mean, training with these guys is probably one of the hardest workouts I've been doing since I've been playing football."

Samuel had an impressive rookie campaign in 2019. He caught 57 receptions for 802 receiving yards and three touchdowns through 15 regular-season games. The receiver's 14.1 yards per catch led all 49ers players with more than 12 catches.

Samuel also hauled in 10 receptions for 127 yards through three playoff games, including a five-catch, 39-receiving-yard performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. His 53 rushing yards in Super Bowl LIV set an NFL record for wide receivers in the big game.

As for getting together with his quarterback this offseason, the second-year receiver hopes to do that at some point. He spoke with Jimmy Garoppolo, along with other 49ers receivers, via Zoom on Wednesday morning, and the group wants to set up throwing sessions, if possible.

"Jimmy told us where he was at, and a couple of guys going back a little early," Samuel said.

Deebo Samuel was one of the most exciting receivers from last year's draft class because of the versatility that he showed on offense during his rookie campaign.

The receiver responded by posting on Instagram that Garoppolo is "already elite," and begged for media personalities, like First Take host Stephen A. Smith, to "stop playing," referring to the criticisms of the 49ers

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel last month suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot while running a route during player-organized workouts in Tennessee. His recovery time is expected to approach the start of the 2020 season, and hopefully, not beyond, should everything go well. Of course, that's assuming the 2020 season takes place. The NFL is proceeding as if it will but is trying to be cautious in its approach. The COVID-19 pandemic threatens to derail the league's plans. The NFL has already proposed to cancel half of the preseason schedule.

In his first full NFL season as a starter, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for the fourth-most single-season passing yards in franchise history, put up clutch performances in some regular-season nail-biters, and led the team to a division crown and the No. 1 seed in the NFC on the way to a Super Bowl appearance. That's quite a list of accomplishments. So why is Garoppolo ranked No. 5 on's recent list of players under the most pressure in 2020?
