Deebo Samuel likes the idea of another potential Super Bowl run for the 49ers.
All-Pro New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has requested a trade from the Big Apple, and the 49ers have been one of the most-rumored potential destinations. Samuel took to his Instagram story on Thursday night to send a subtle message of encouragement to the 24-year-old safety.
Both the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks have been reported to be in negotiations with the Jets regarding Adams, who has been an All-Pro in each of the past two seasons.
There are plenty of potential hurdles for the 49ers if they want to complete a potential trade for Adams. He has two years remaining on his rookie deal in New York and holds very little leverage outside of not reporting to training camp and holding out. The Jets rightfully are asking for a high price, likely needing at least one first-round pick to even have a seat at the table in negotiations. All of that neglects to mention that Adams wants to be paid like the NFL's best safety (which he has a pretty good argument for being), but the 49ers' front office still has to pay George Kittle in what is expected to be well above the current tight end market value.
Nevertheless, you can't blame Deebo for trying to bring as much talent to the 49ers as possible.
