49ers’ Deebo Samuel hoping to honor newborn son in special way Sunday

Against the Texans this upcoming Sunday, Deebo Samuel may be honoring his newborn son on the field in a special way: by adding something to the backside of his jersey.

On Thursday, Deebo Samuel shared with reporters that his son, Tyshun Raequan Samuel Jr., was born on Monday in North Carolina, coming in at eight pounds and fifteen ounces.

Deebo, whose own name is Tyshun Raequan Samuel, gave his first son his namesake, and hopes to add the words Sr. to the back of his jersey Sunday.

Samuel was certainly happy during the process, sharing that while he "didn't cry", he was joyful on Monday.

In addition, Samuel has looked to teammate and fellow 25-year old Emmanuel Moseley, who's been a great teammate and supporter for the third-year receiver.

Samuel also noted on the extra caution with his body, given the number of flights he's recently been on, in preparation for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, which could be a must-win in order for San Francisco to make the playoffs.

Whether Samuel will be able to add "Sr." to his jersey on Sunday or not is unknown at the moment, but it will certainly be something to look for on the back of #19 as he chases 1300 receiving yards on the season.

Kyle Shanahan praises his quarterback room every year. Last season, the San Francisco 49ers went through three starting quarterbacks and still made it to the NFC Championship Game. Trey Lance was the Week 1 starter but suffered a season-ending ankle injury during his second game. Eleven weeks later, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a broken foot. That opened the door for rookie Brock Purdy to show his coaches and the NFL world that he belonged, despite being the last overall pick in the draft. Purdy guided the 49ers to eight consecutive wins before suffering a severe injury in that NFC title game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Two of the quarterbacks from last season—Lance and Purdy—remain. Both are just 23 years old. They are joined by Sam
