49ers Could Be Trading Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk

Super Bowl LVIII - San Francisco 49ers v Kansas City Chiefs

(Photo : Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)) LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – FEBRUARY 11: Deebo Samuel #19 of the San Francisco 49ers warms-up before Super Bowl LVIII against the Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rumors have been circulating around the NFL on if the San Francisco 49ers are potentially willing to deal one of their talented wide receivers, either Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk. 

We’re sure several teams around the league have been regularly inquiring about taking one of the wideouts off the Niners hands.

Team general manager John Lynch confirmed that a possible trade for both should not be ruled out. 

“Never close the door on a trade. I mean, we will always listen, and we have. But we like our group as it stands,” Lynch said.

The 49ers took Ricky Pearsall from Florida with their first-round pick in this year’s draft,  leaving it up in the air whether or not they will trade one of their standout receivers.

Here are several landing spots for Deebo Samuel, or even Brandon Aiyuk, heading into next season.

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots drafted Drake Maye with the No.3 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, attempting to capture a franchise quarterback for years to come. 

It would only make sense for the Patriots to surround their young quarterback with some weapons.

Last season, the Patriots were ranked last in the league in receiving yards, and without a true standout WR on their roster, they may struggle to score points again this year.  

All that could change if New England could manage to finesse a trade for Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk.

Los Angeles Chargers 

The Los Angeles Chargers parted ways with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams earlier this offseason, stripping Justin Herbert’s primary targets away from him. 

The Chargers are in need of offensive weapons and Deebo Samuel could instantly boost their offense.

Samuel would immediately become WR1 along with adding a nice rushing threat for LA. 

Maybe behind Deebo Samuel, Quentin Johnston could play up to his draft value, as the 1st round wide receiver is coming off a lackluster rookie campaign.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers will enter the 2024 season with a new starting quarterback, Russell Wilson.

They could instantly give Wilson a welcome to Pittsburgh gift by trading for one of the 49ers’ wideouts. 

Trading for Samuel or Aiyuk would make a lot of sense, considering the Steelers currently lack depth at the position after dealing Diontae Johnson to the Panthers. 

Either receiver would fit seamlessly with George Pickens on the opposite end. Playing the same way he does in San Francisco, Deebo Samuel may be the preferred option given his YAC ability and having Pickens lead the way with his stellar blocking.

New York Jets

Though there is no indication yet whether the Jets are interested in Deebo Samuel, the team could still benefit from making a move for the 49ers’ receiver.

The Jets’ current receiver room includes Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams, and a recent draft pick in Kentucky Malachi Corley; we’ll try to forget Allen Lazard is on the team. 

Still, the Jets could instantly add another game-changer for Aaron Rodgers as New York is going as all in as possible this season.
