Deebo Samuel signs $71.55 million extension through 2025

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel signed a three-year, $71.55 million extension through 2025.

What It Means:

Samuel reportedly requested a trade in April before the draft, but the 49ers remained committed to working out a new deal. The 2019 second-round pick led the 49ers across the board in receiving last season while adding 59 rushes for 365 yards and 8 touchdowns. Samuel could be even more productive this season in a 49ers' offense that is expected to improve with Trey Lance replacing Jimmy Garoppolo as the starting quarterback.

Deebo is currently the WR3 as a member of the 49ers in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 126.4 targets, 78.7 receptions, 1,106.8 yards, and 7.18 receiving touchdowns, with 50.8 carries for 309.8 yards and 4.21 rushing touchdowns.
