Rumor: Patriots “sniffing around” 49ers star Deebo Samuel

Feb 16, 2023 at 10:55 AM--

There's a rumor floating around that the New England Patriots may be interested in trading for San Francisco 49ers star wideout Deebo Samuel. During the Felger & Mazz show, a Boston-area show on WBZ-FM radio, executive producer James Stewart told hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti about a text that he received.

"I got a text message from an NFL talent evaluator that the Patriots are sniffing around Deebo Samuel," Stewart said.

Samuel just completed his fourth NFL season, recording 632 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns through 13 game appearances to go along with his 232 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. That followed a breakout campaign that saw Samuel rack up 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns, earning first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors.

It would be expensive if someone wanted to steal Samuel away from the 49ers. Last year, unhappy with his contract situation, Samuel requested to be traded. There were teams interested, but San Francisco never heard an offer that made them consider offloading the star player.

The 49ers were able to repair the perceived rift and sign the wide receiver to a three-year, $71.6 million contract extension that included $58.1 million guaranteed.

San Francisco made Samuel a second-round pick out of South Carolina in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The 49ers' standout wide receiver/running back addressed that performance during a press conference on Day 1 of 49ers mandatory minicamp. He did not hold back when issuing a critique of how things went for him in 2022. "Oh, it was awful," Samuel said. "Every aspect." Samuel, 27, caught 56 passes for 632 yards in 13 games last season while rushing for 232 yards and three touchdowns on 42 carries. There were moments on the field when Samuel certainly made his presence felt, but overall he fell short of making the type of impact he made in 2021, when he caught 77
