Deebo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers have reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year, $71.55 million contract extension that could become worth up to $73.5 million.

Therefore, every snap is an opportunity to learn for the inexperienced quarterback, who is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 starter. While the revolution that Lance was the undisputed starter heading into the 2022 season is new to the national media, those inside the building and those who follow the team more closely weren't surprised.
