The 49ers agreed on a three-year contract extension worth up to $73.5 million

with $58.1 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The tension between Samuel and the 49ers had initially emerged after it was reported that he wanted to leave.

However, the situation has thawed due to his change of heart.

Representatives for both John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan are confident that a deal will be successful.

The WR-TE duo of Samuel and George Kittle are the best players in the NFL.

They will take the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance as smoothly

as possible now that they have a contract through 2025.

After being selected by the Ravens in the second round of the 2019 draft,

Samuel has already flashed a lot of potential, but he also recently missed a lot of games due to injuries.

Samuel got 90 catches, 1,000 yards, four touchdowns and carries that went for 185 yards.

Samuel finally broke out in 2021 after battling injury.

He became a ballcarrier and pass catcher, carrying the offense even with his injuries.
