While it remains uncertain whether the San Francisco 49ers will trade wide receiver Deebo Samuel, the New York Jets are said to consider his potential landing spot if they do.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler“most people” in the NFL consider the Jets to be Samuel’s “premier runners,” although “some teams” don’t expect the Niners to transfer him anytime soon.

Fowler noted that the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions are also in a mix of Samuel, but a source said it would take “a lot” to swap out Samuel for the Packers due to the NFC rivalry between the two teams and the friendly rivalry between the Niners chief. Coach Kyle Shanahan and Packers head coach Matt LaFleur.

Samuel, 26, has been a hot commodity since starting his career in his third season in the NFL.

The former South Carolina star was probably the one responsible for the Niners making the playoffs and reaching the NFC Championship Game, as he did everything in 2021.

In addition to achieving career heights with 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and six touchdowns, Samuel made life miserable to oppose defenses as a ball carrier, rushing for 365 yards and eight points on 59 chariots.

After the Pro Bowl season and first-team All-Pro kick off, Samuel will probably want to get paid, especially given his style of play and the fact that he has an injury record, missing nine games in 2020.

While he initially thought money was the driver behind Samuel’s trade request, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported last week that the way 49 people used it played a role in his trade request:

From the NFL Now: For over a week, it’s been #49ers They deal with a major issue in their WRs room, with Deebo Samuel ordering a trade.

Rapoport noted that he “doesn’t seem comfortable” using it in a double wide rear receiver role that requires him to take a lot of hits.

Of course, Samuel’s ingenuity could help him secure a big contract with the 49ers or elsewhere if he eventually gets traded.

Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill and Stefon Diggs all get new contracts worth over $20 million or more per season, and it only makes sense that Samuel could get closer to that group.

Up to this point, the 49ers have publicly opposed the idea of ​​trading Samuel, with general manager John Lynch say: “I can never imagine wanting to move on from Depo… I can’t envision a scenario where we are going to do that [trade him]. “

The planes were It is said that the finalists in the lottery to get Hill out of the Kansas City Chiefs before the Miami Dolphins land him, so it’s no surprise that they were in the mix with Samuel as well.

Meanwhile, the Hazams need a new No. 1 receiver for quarterback Aaron Rodgers after Adams traded for the Las Vegas Raiders, and the Lions only need offensive weapons overall.

San Francisco should have no shortage of suitors and strong performances if you decide to break up with Samuel, but for now, it looks as if the 49ers want to try everything they can to work things out.
