John Lynch closes for potential trade with Deebo Samuel
“I can never imagine wanting to move on from Deebo,” said Lynch, h / t Kevin Patra of NFL.com. “You put yourself through the exercises with the fact that even though we do not have a first-round choice, you have to be thorough in this process and prepare for everything, and while you go through and do it. He is simply too good for a player. “
Last week, the NFL began their volunteer offseason training programs, but Samuel did not report to the 49ers, with reports suggesting he was seeking a new contract. Samuel is set to go into the final year of his contract before striking free.
Then Samuel told ESPNs Jeff Darlington that he requested a barter from the 49ers. Prior to this bombing, Adam Schefter said the broadband receiver did not participate in contract negotiations with the team. Even after Samuel told Darlington that he wanted a deal, there is no specific reason why he made the request.
Things can change, of course, but at the time of writing, Lynch has expressed his desire for Samuel to remain on the team.
