49ers linebacker Fred Warner said Monday he is confident Deebo Samuel‘s contract dispute with the team will get worked out soon and he may have been alluding to some huge news.
Samuel’s trainer posted a video with the 49ers star and said, “He about to get paid.”
Deebo is reportedly looking for $25 million a year on a long-term contract, which is what fellow 2019 draft classmate A.J. Brown got from the Eagles as part of the trade with the Titans.
Madden 23 recently released their overall player ratings and Samuel is an 88 overall and isn’t even in the top 10 of receivers. He trails players such as Amari Cooper and Terry McLaurin.
Samuel shared an honest response in reference to his surprisingly low Madden 23 rating.
In 2021, Samuel appeared in 16 games for the 49ers and caught 77 passes for 1,405 yards receiving to go along with 365 yards rushing and 14 total touchdowns, six through the air, and eight on the ground.
