Deebo Samuel has reportedly requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers. Samuel was in the works to get a deal done with the franchise, but the issue is not with his contract, it’s with his role on the team. He isn’t a fan of how much they use him in the running game and he wants to move on this year. A ton of teams are interested, but these three seem like the best options for him.
New York Jets
Samuel would be the clear new No. 1 in New York and could get a fresh start with a promising young quarterback in Zach Wilson. The Jets would likely be willing to trade two second-round picks and one third-round pick to get Samuel away from the 49ers.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay needs a new No. 1 after trading Davante Adams. Samuel could be that guy and Rodgers would love him. Plus, they have a ton of picks to offer and enough cap space to get a big extension done for Samuel.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs, like the Packers, traded their star wide receiver. They now have a ton of picks to use to acquire a big time wide receiver like Samuel. This move would also put Kansas City at the top of a lot of people’s lists for winning Super Bowl 2023.
