During the offseason, Deebo Samuel expressed his thoughts following the San Francisco 49ers' playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The star receiver asserted that the better team didn't emerge victorious. After all, in that NFC Championship Game, the 49ers' starting and backup quarterbacks sustained injuries, contributing to the 31-7 defeat.

In a conversation with I AM ATHLETE, Samuel commended Eagles cornerback Darius Slay but refrained from praising James Bradberry, whom he labeled "trash."

This week, when asked if he regrets any of his offseason comments, including those about Bradberry, Samuel stood firm, stating, "I don't regret nothing I said."

On Wednesday, Bradberry spoke with Philadelphia reporters and had an opportunity to respond to Samuel's comment.

After laughing at the question, Bradberry paused before saying, "I just focus one day at a time. Of course, I don't necessarily like what he said. I wish you to use a better word to describe my play, but it is what it is. At the end of the day, all I can do is control my work ethic and what I do [to prepare]."

When asked about the possible motivation behind Samuel's comment, Bradberry responded, "You have to ask him."

The cornerback acknowledges that the 49ers present a significant challenge for the Eagles. While it's an NFC Championship Game rematch, both teams are motivated by their championship aspirations, not the outcome of last season's meeting.

"Last year's last year," Bradberry said. "I think the extra motivation comes from it being ... a conference opponent. They're a great team, so it's going to be a big challenge for us."

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

49ers insider weighs in on Deebo Samuel vs. Brandon Aiyuk debate

Brock Purdy has just completed his second NFL season, which means he's under contract with the San Francisco 49ers for two more years. The team is allowed to begin negotiating a contract extension after the 2024 season. With a salary cap hit of around $1 million next season, Purdy's contract provides the 49ers with some flexibility, allowing them to allocate funds elsewhere on the roster. However, the 49ers are undoubtedly looking ahead, aware that Purdy will eventually demand a larger share of the team's cap space. With the next significant contract anticipated for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, a debate has arisen regarding the long-term likelihood of retaining both Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. With some big financial decisions looming, it might only be feasible to

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.
