An anonymous NFL general manager told Sports Illustrated the San Francisco 49ers are looking for two first-rounders in exchange for Deebo Samuel.
We are closing in on the NFL Draft arriving and everyone is waiting to see whether or not the San Francisco 49ers will end up trading star wide receiver Deebo Samuel. If something does go down, it won’t come cheap.
According to an anonymous NFL general manager in an interview with Sports Illustrated, the 49ers could be looking at two first-round picks in exchange for Samuel. Will someone come calling with that offer?
Deebo Samuel trade rumors continue to fly all over the place
Is this wishful thinking from John Lynch? At this point it feels like anything is on the table in regards to Samuel, but two first-rounders may be a little too steep for a team to consider. While Samuel is one of the best offensive weapons in the league, this just might be too expensive.
Lynch and the front office will need to consider dropping their asking price if the phone lines are busy leading up to Thursday night. One thing that has been made clear, though, is that Samuel is not planning on signing a long-term extension with the NFC West powerhouse.
The relationship between the two sides feels beyond repair. With this, Lynch and Co. could end up trading him and getting a handsome return. A first-rounder would certainly need to be presented, with teams like the Texans and Jets being potential squads to make that happen.
Maybe an additional second-rounder would get things across the board. However, a pair of first-round selections? That seems unlikely at this point. Who knows, though, maybe someone comes in and fools all of us by giving the 49ers what they want.
