Deebo Samuel reacts to Jamal Adams trade to Seahawks

Jul 25, 2020 at 8:46 PM--


Deebo Samuel doesn't seem too concerned with Jamal Adams entering the division. Earlier this month, the second-year wide receiver endorsed the All-Pro safety joining the San Francisco 49ers. Instead, the New York Jets traded Adams to the Seattle Seahawks, who gave up safety Bradley McDougald, a first-round pick in 2021, another first-rounder in 2022, and a third-round pick in 2021.

Now, Samuel will have to face Adams at least twice a year. He wants to make it clear that he isn't intimidated by the thought of stepping onto the football field against Adams, though.

"Yes the Seahawks got Jamal," Samuel tweeted out on Saturday. "Y'all can stop writing me talking crazy lol. DEEBO ain't never feared a soul on that gridiron or in real life."


Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that, according to parties involved in the trade, the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys were both believed to be in on trying to acquire Adams.

Samuel is coming off an impressive rookie campaign, during which he caught 57 passes for 802 receiving yards with three receiving touchdowns. The versatile receiver added three rushing touchdowns to his stat sheet.

In two games against Seattle, Samuel racked up 13 catches for 214 yards. Samuel versus Adams could be an exciting matchup to watch for years to come, and it sounds like the former isn't losing any sleep over it.

Seahawks GM admits 49ers TE George Kittle factored into decision to trade for Jamal Adams

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle can be a handful for opposing defenses. The first-team All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowl selection has recorded back-to-back seasons of over 1,000 receiving yards and highlights of him carrying New Orleans Saints defenders downfield may just be a preview of things to come. Kittle will likely sign a long-term deal sometime soon, meaning NFC West defenses will have to contend with him for the foreseeable future. The Seattle Seahawks gave up a haul for former New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. Some would criticize that they gave up too much. But in a division with Kittle lining up across from you twice a year, maybe Seattle felt it had to do something to close the gap on the defending NFC champions. Did it close

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently admitted that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was among the reasons why the division rivals gave up a haul to acquire safety Jamal Adams. "But you have to have so much speed on the back, especially when we're playing against Kyler Murray and George Kittle and Robert Woods and all these guys that seem like they are just running all over the place," Schneider told Peter King of NBC Sports. "You've got to have as much speed on the field. So adding a guy like Jamal who has that versatility to play down in the box and play in the hole and play man coverage is really important to us." The

John Lynch discusses 49ers passing on Jamal Adams, making Raheem Mostert happy

It was a bit of a shock when general manager John Lynch told NBC Sports Bay Area on Monday that the reports of the San Francisco 49ers being among the teams that pushed to add All-Pro safety Jamal Adams were false. "Totally inaccurate," Lynch said via Matt Maiocco. "We did not ever make a call about the player." And there you go. Lynch says his team never actually reached out to the Jets about Adams, who was eventually traded to the division-rival Seattle Seahawks for a haul that included two first-round picks. That doesn't, however, mean San Francisco was uninterested in one of the best defenders in the game. The team just knew it couldn't afford
