Two Teams Made Draft Day Trade Offers For Deebo Samuel: Report

Two teams reportedly offered first-round picks to the San Francisco 49ers in an attempt to acquire disgruntled star wide receiver Deebo Samuel on Tuesday night, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

During an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show Friday (April 29), Rapoport confirmed the New York Jets "offered pick 10 and a pick swap" and " the Lions "had an offer on the table" before trading up to select Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams at No. 12 overall.

"The 49ers just wouldn't engage and I think everyone was just sort of waiting like, 'alright, well obviously they're just going to do this deal, and then they just didn't.

"And so, now, like, he's not happy. When's he going to show up? I don't know. And I think they're going to try to make this better but will they? Like, there's a lot more questions than answers on the Deebo Samuel situation now that he didn't get traded last night."

Last week, Rapoport reported Samuel ended negotiations on a contract extension with the 49ers and requested a trade.

"The #49ers have been looking to make offers for a long-term deal with WR Deebo Samuel, but he’s been unwilling to engage," Rapoport tweeted on Wednesday (April 20). "This is why. Unclear where this goes from here. But Samuel wanting out is the latest in big-name WR drama."

Days prior, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Samuel was expected to miss on-field workouts, which the 49ers began on Tuesday.

Samuel, 26, has one year remaining on his rookie contract and finds himself in line for a new deal after a record-setting offseason for the wide receiver position.

All-Pro receiver Davante Adams signed a five-year deal worth up to $142.5 million (including $67.5 million guaranteed and an annual average of $28.5 million paid) upon being acquired by the Las Vegas Raiders in a trade with the Green Bay Packers last month.

Adams' deal was the largest contract given to a non-quarterback in NFL history, prior to Tyreek Hill signing a four-year, $120 million deal with the Miami Dolphins after being acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs one week after Adams' trade.

Hill's contract includes a record $30 million annual salary, as well as $72.2 million guaranteed and $52.535 million at signing, ESPN reports.

Other notable offseason wide receiver deals include Stefon Diggsfour-year, $104 million extension with the Buffalo BillsChristian Kirk signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars for four years, $72 million; Mike Williams re-signing with the Los Angeles Chargers for three years, $60 million; and Chris Godwin re-signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for three years, $60 million.

Samuel was a first-team All-Pro wide receiver and Pro Bowl selection for the first time in 2021, having excelled in several areas, which included setting an NFL record for most rushing touchdowns by a wide receiver in a single season (8).

The former University of South Carolina standout has 167 receptions for 2,598 yards and 10 touchdowns, as well as 550 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 550 attempts (6.8 yards per carry) during his first three NFL seasons.
