Seattle Seahawks star receiver receiver D.K. Metcalf finally received his long-term contract extension, earning a three-year, $72 million deal with $58.2 million guaranteed, as well as a $30 million signing bonus, which was the largest ever for a wide receiver in NFL history.
Now comes San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel’s contract extension, as the two sides have been continuously in talks over the past few weeks according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
In a slew of major deals for wide receivers this offseason, there are three specific cases that could be the defining factor in Samuel’s contract negotiations: Philadelphia Eagles wideout A.J. Brown, Washington Commanders wideout Terry McLaurin, and now Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K.
Deebo Samuel’s trainer on 49ers WR’s contract status: ‘He about to get paid’
San Francisco 49ers fans await Deebo Samuel contract news. The wide receiver generated a lot of offseason chatter by expressing his displeasure regarding his contract status, leading to a trade request. The 49ers, intent on keeping their most dynamic offensive weapon, didn’t entertain offers.
Samuel is back in the Bay Area, which could be viewed as a positive when it comes to the 49ers reconciling their relationship with the star player and locking him into a long-term deal. Players report to Santa Clara for training camp in a week, and it would be ideal to complete a deal before then.

“There’s no deal done yet, but the 49ers continue to talk to Deebo Samuel’s agent Tory Dandy about a long-term contract extension that would keep him in San Francisco.
