Deebo Samuel is officially staying in San Francisco for the foreseeable future.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Samuel signed a three-year extension worth $71.55 million, including $58.1 million in guaranteed money. It has a maximum value of $73.5 million.
Samuel was the last main domino to fall after DK Metcalf got their mega-extension on Thursday night. Metcalf signed a three-year, $72 million extension to stay with the Seattle Seahawks going forward.
This means that Samuel’s hold-in is officially over and he can start training with the team again on Monday. Before accepting this deal, he was with the team but worked alone at the side of the training ground.
This deal also ends Samuel’s business demand after he wanted out a few months ago. The 49ers were able to rebuild their relationship with him to achieve this.
Samuel has just had the best season of his career. As for receptions, he racked up 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and six touchdowns. In the rushing game, he finished with 365 yards and eight touchdowns on 59 carries.
He should continue to play an important role on the 49ers offense as they look to compete for a Super Bowl.
