On Thursday 49ers WR Deebo Samuel made headlines when he unfollowed the team and scrubbed all mention of the 49ers from his Instagram account. Does he want out of San Francisco? Ben Maller points out what should be obvious: Samuel just wants money.

Ben Maller: "In the modern sporting battlefield of contract negotiations, the way that you ratchet up the hostilities is on a social media app. You start on the app. The Twitter app, the Instagram app, that's where you start it...So Samuel is going into the passive aggressive toolbox and what he's doing here is he's handling things the standard way of the narcissistic athlete."
