A.J. Brown calls on fans to troll Deebo Samuel ahead of 49ers-Eagles

While A.J. Brown and Deebo Samuel maintain a strong friendship, the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver is injecting some friendly banter into the mix ahead of the highly anticipated Week 13 showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Eagles.

Brown has declared it "troll [Deebo Samuel] week," urging Eagles fans to engage with the star 49ers player ahead of this crucial matchup.


While Brown and Samuel may be close, the latter shared his disdain for the Eagles during the offseason, identifying them as his most disliked team in the NFL.

"[My] most hated team is the Eagles right now. One hundred percent," Samuel admitted in May. "... All the trash talk coming from the Eagles fan base and the players, you just get tired of that."

The Eagles have criticized the 49ers for doing too much talking themselves following last season's NFC Championship Game loss. The confident 49ers squad insisted that the 31-7 defeat would have had a different outcome had quarterback Brock Purdy not suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow early in the contest.

"I ain't going to keep going on about what could've happened and what would've happened, but yeah, it would've definitely been a different outcome," Samuel said. "... We lost because we played with 10 people."

His teammate, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, added to the chatter following that playoff loss, saying, "We have, hands down, the best football team in the league. Hands down. Hands down. I'm not even about to argue with anybody who thinks they should argue that."

Still, this latest development is all in good fun for Brown and Samuel, with the former making it known that he is looking forward to seeing the 49ers wideout this weekend.


Sunday's rematch at Lincoln Financial Field could be crucial in developing the NFC playoff picture. A 49ers victory would bring them closer to the top seed and home-field advantage, while an Eagles win would make it challenging for anyone else to overtake the Philly team for the top spot.

Ji'Ayir Brown earns praise from 49ers GM John Lynch

Ji'Ayir Brown patiently awaited his opportunity to contribute to the San Francisco 49ers' defense. Unfortunately, that opportunity arose after an injury to starter Talanoa Hufanga, thrusting Brown into a starting role. However, the rookie safety made the most of the situation. Brown concluded the season as Pro Football Focus' fourth-highest-graded rookie safety (73.4) and was the 49ers' highest-graded safety overall. His coverage grade was surpassed only by Charvarius Ward and Deommodore Lenoir. San Francisco selected Brown in the third round of last year's draft—its first pick of 2023. Speaking at this year's NFL Scouting Combine, general manager John Lynch reflected on Brown's pre-draft impression and impact this past season. "I was real

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
