NFL Rumors: 49ers Star WR Requests Trade

While speaking with ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Deebo Samuel stated that he has requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers. 

Samuel did not specify why exactly he has requested a change of scenery, but in time, we will likely find out. However, teams looking for a top-of-the-line wide receiver now have an amazing option in Samuel. 

In 16 games this season, Samuel had six touchdowns, 77 receptions, and 1,405 yards. With that, he led the league in yards per reception with 18.2, so it's clear that he will get a lot of interest from around the league. He also was named an All-Pro for the first time in his career and was selected for the Pro Bowl.

The 49ers will certainly be unhappy to move Samuel, but this request, a move is inevitable. It will be intriguing to see where the star ends up, but boy, we are in for another blockbuster in the NFL.
