In May, former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst Ryan Harris made headlines stating that sources inside the San Francisco 49ers shared doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance.

Earlier this offseason, Samuel requested to be traded after watching several of his wide receiver peers cash in while the 49ers star waited for his own contract extension.

Two massive games. Two double-digit 4th quarter leads. Two heart-breaking losses. You can stop right there and fans of the San Francisco 49ers know exactly what you're talking about.

And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up.

As a wide receiver, he had 1,405 yards and six touchdowns from 77 receptions, averaging 18.2 yards per catch.
