The San Francisco 49ers’ offseason has been clouded in part by questions about whether the team would find a trade partner for wide receiver Deebo Samuel.

Those questions apparently ended on Sunday night.

Samuel and the 49ers have agreed to a three-year contract extension, according to multiple reports. The deal is still being finalized. ESPN reported the deal is worth $71.55 million with $58.1 million guaranteed.

The announced agreement allows Samuel to become a free agent in 2026, when he will be 30 years old. The saga of whether the 49ers will trade him appears to be over. Samuel publicly requested a trade before the draft but ended up showing up for the mandatory minicamp last week. He was said to be “holding” while his representatives brokered a deal.

Samuel has become one of football’s greatest weapons. He showed he could hurt teams on the ground and in the air. He had 1,770 scrimmage yards and rushed for eight touchdowns with the 49ers. He also led the league with 18.2 receiving yards, had 1,405 receiving yards, and scored 14 combined touchdowns.
