On the 49ers podcast with David Zizmor:
#1 David, Deebo Samuel said he had a lot of pressure to get a deal done with the San Francisco 49ers at the right price. Samuel said that at the end of the day business is business. He had expressed an interest in playing elsewhere signed a three year extension worth $73.5 million.
#2 In what could be explained as a turbulent off season for Deebo he was telling the 49ers basically he was leaving and without an extension he was taking his business elsewhere. That’s when general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan went into panic mode and tried to get something worked out with Samuel.
#3 David next week the 49ers open up their first pre season game on Fri Aug 12th against the Green Bay Packers at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara. As noted by Joe Hawkes who does the 49ers Sunday podcasts said that the 49ers will not be using quarterback Trey Lance and the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers most likely will not see any action that night.
