Was Deebo Samuel mad at the 49ers for how they treated Jimmy Garoppolo? 

Author: Jon Kuzma


When Deebo Samuel demanded a trade. There were a few different reasons that were in play. First was Samuel’s desire for a new contract. Samuel wanted to be paid and be paid handsomely for what he did this past year. But that wasn’t the only reason Samuel was upset. Samuel also didn’t like how the 49ers treated Jimmy Garoppolo. You have to remember. Those two guys have been throwing together. Since Samuel arrived in San Francisco back in 2019. There was a personal relationship there and they spent a lot of time putting in the work together. I mean how many times did you see those two guys laughing on the sideline together? It’s not hard to see why Samuel was upset. This was Samuel’s way of having Garoppolo’s back. And when you look at it from that perspective. It makes you respect Samuel for standing up for his teammate.
