Deebo Samuel requests trade

I doubt we could afford him at this point and I sure as hell don't want to trade away more draft picks. I don't want a whiner on our team anyway. Boo hoo, the team isn't using me the way I want...so what if it worked so well? This is all about me....

Where does it say he requested a trade?

if you havent seen it, he legit did ask for a trade seemingly. By reliable sources.

 

And all indications are it is not just money but more-so related to his use.

 

SF spent the second half of the year using him in the backfield a lot. He took a lot of hits and on top of that his receiving numbers came way down. Double whammy for a big pay day and for his longevity. So sounds like he wants to get paid and go somewhere as a pure WR

I think the Jets would be a perfect landing spot

Agreed,

 

At the end of the day, the teams that make the most sense are those that have multiple 1st round picks in this draft and also are in win-now mode or have a young QB they are trying to build around that they need to get a WR1 for.

 

In this draft that means:

 

Eagles

Chiefs

Packers

Jets

 

 

No way the Giants, Texans, Seahawks or lions should be going down that path until they have QB settled.

 

 

The Deebo stuff to me is fascinating. What makes his so valuable and unique is his skill set and that he is a unicorn in terms of his versatility. However, it is that versatility and uniqueness that he seemingly is rallying against as he wants to not be used as much running the ball and be more of a pure WR (allegedly).

 

If that is true, it makes sense from a health and career longevity stance. Also from a "WRs get paid, RBs do not and versatile options like Patterson did not either" stance.

 

Buuuut, if he is not going to be used in the way that made him so special, is he really worth what he is asking to be paid? On top of the crazy pick compensation to get him as well?

 

 

His first half of last year showed his ability as a pure WR weapon, but that was a half a year. I can't wait to see how his situation shakes out.

Saw an article regarding this.  The article stated that: the Colts — who have historically been aggressive under Ballard in the trade market using draft picks to acquire veterans (DeForest Buckner, Carson Wentz, Matt Ryan, Yannick Ngakoue)

 

 

So two years,  including this year constitutes historical and aggressive?

 

Some writers...

Well….  Technically, it’s three years.

 

2020: Buckner

2021:  Wentz

2022:  Ngokwe,  Ryan. 
 

Given that Ballard is now into his 5th season,  I don’t think it’s an unreasonable observation.  
 

That said,  considering the cost in picks to make a deal, then his large contract, I’d guess the chances of a trade for Samuel to be less than 1 percent.   Honestly.
