Am leaving the 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan Accepted a deal over…

Starting with the running back position, the 49ers don’t have a decent running back beside CMC. They have Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason, who have contributed 487 yards combined in the last season. And then there’s the curious case of rookie Isaac Guerendo, who is yet to step on the field. McCaffrey played 16 games, had 1,459 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, and ranks first in the yardage, per ESPN. Hence, losing him is a big risk.

As far as Samuel goes, he played 15 games, had 892 yards and 7 touchdowns. But comparing his performance to Brandon Aiyuk will clarify why Samuel’s presence is important. Aiyuk had 75 receptions 1,342 yards and 7 touchdowns and these stats are higher than Samuel’s. But If we take a deeper look, Samuel getting same amount of touchdowns means he’s either a good finisher or a very impactful player in the league. It also signifies that the WR makes the most out of his reception.

However, Deebo’s contract has come to bite his back. This year, Samuel is set to make a base salary of nearly $28 million, per Spotrac, which might be a problematic situation for the team. Besides, the Niners drafted the rookie Ricky Pearsall in the draft, and he could potentially replace Samuel with enough training.


Safe to say that this might be the last glory year of Kyle Shanahan’s offense and he might have to start from scratch if her were to lose any of these players.
