Aug 1, 2022 at 10:39 AM--

Deebo Samuel officially signed his three-year extension on Monday. The deal is reportedly worth $71.55 million with a maximum value of $73.5 million, including $58.167 million that will become fully guaranteed on April 1, 2023.

The San Francisco 49ers included the following statement from general manager John Lynch in the official press release.

"We are overjoyed to have come together with Deebo to keep him with the 49ers for years to come. Deebo has the rare ability to not only play at a unique level but to inspire his teammates with the way he plays. He is a special player that embodies "will meeting skill." We're proud to move forward with him as an integral leader and foundational piece of our team."

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.

The 49ers originally selected Samuel (6-0, 215) in the second round (36th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. In his three years with the 49ers (2019-21), he has appeared in 38 games (31 starts) and registered 167 receptions for 2,598 yards (15.6 average) and 10 touchdowns. He has also added 81 rushing attempts for 550 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. In six postseason starts with the 49ers, he has registered 20 catches for 281 yards and one touchdown to go along with 33 carries for 239 yards and one touchdown.

Samuel earned Associated Press First-Team All-Pro honors and his first Pro Bowl selection in 2021. In 16 games (15 starts), he registered 77 receptions for 1,405 receiving yards (18.2 average) and five receiving touchdowns. He also racked up career-highs in carries (59), rushing yards (365) and rushing touchdowns (eight). His eight rushing touchdowns were the most by any player whose primary position is wide receiver since the merger.

A 26-year-old native of Inman, SC, Samuel attended the University of South Carolina where he appeared in 30 games (27 starts) in five years with the Gamecocks (2014-18) and registered 148 receptions for 2,076 yards and 16 touchdowns. As a kick returner, he recorded 42 returns for 1,219 yards (29.0 average) and four touchdowns while also notching 25 rushing attempts for 154 yards and seven rushing touchdowns, while also converting both passing attempts in his career for touchdowns.

George Kittle caught just four passes for 28 yards during his 2022 season debut on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. The San Francisco 49ers tight end is returning from a groin injury that forced him to miss Weeks 1 and 2. He wasn't much of a factor in the 11-10 loss to Denver, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a Monday conference call and asked if Kittle is still working his way back into game shape. "Yeah, definitely," Shanahan responded. "You can't underestimate how much, when guys miss time, how hard it is to go out and play a game like that. So yeah, George, he did some good things, but he's not there yet because he hasn't been playing much. It was nice to get him back in practice more last week. It was nice to get him through

He suffered a groin strain on September 5 and hasn't practiced since, missing the team's Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears. San Francisco will hold one more practice, a session this afternoon, before this weekend's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. This morning, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reported that Kittle isn't expected to play against Seattle, per "league sources not authorized to speak publicly."
