Samuel Contract Situation
In 2019, Samuel signed a four-year contract with the 49ers, however, he believes that he should be paid a higher salary taking into account his contributions to the team.
He aspires to become one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL with Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network stating that he wants a salary in the range of $25 million yearly.
Pauline wrote “Multiple league sources tell me the Niners put a baseline contract offer on the table for Samuel, which averages just under $19 million per year,” adding “Most believe Samuel’s ultimate contract will be in the range of $23-$24 million per year.
He likely won’t make as much money as A.J. Brown, who could sign a renegotiated contract with the Tennessee Titans sooner than later.”
