Deebo Samuel does not seem to be happy.
The 49ers WR has had to sit back and watch as a five-year contract worth up to $140 million was given to Davante Adams and then a four-year contract worth up to $120 million for Tyreek Hill. Just this week, the Bills gave Stefon Diggs signed a four-year extension worth $104 million.
That is a lot of money being thrown around to wide receivers.
The San Francisco 49ers receiver seemingly reacted to news of Diggs’ deal.
In further response, Samuel has unfollowed the team.
Last season was the first time Samuel surpassed 1,000 receiving yards. He put up an impressive 802 receiving yards as a rookie in 2019. He had just 391 receiving yards during an injury-hindered 2020 campaign.
His 2021 season was great as he recorded 1,405 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns. He also recorded 365 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns, with the latter being an NFL record for a receiver.
His versatility makes him way more valuable and the 49ers may want to think about keeping him happy.
