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.

Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall

There have been two major San Francisco 49ers storylines this offseason. The first was the quarterback situation and the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance. Then, that was overshadowed by the Deebo Samuel drama that culminated in the wide receiver requesting a trade—and then being denied. On Monday, Albert Breer of MMQB joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he had heard about both storylines, starting with Samuel and the 49ers' strong desire to mend the broken relationship. "The messaging coming out of there is how badly [the 49ers] want him back and how important he is to their team," Breer told Eisen. Samuel was an essential factor in the team's success last season, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns for
