Deebo Does Dallas? 49ers Star Samuel ‘Likes’ Cowboys Trade

Does Deebo Samuel want a trade to the Dallas Cowboys?

FRISCO - After the loss of Cedrick Wilson and the trade of Amari Cooper this offseason, one position of need that the Dallas Cowboys could target ahead of the NFL Draft is wide receiver. 

Fortunately for the Cowboys, one of the best in the league, San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuelrequested a trade on Monday. Samuel is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is hoping to be paid top dollar before the start of the 2022 season.

More importantly, however, it appears that Samuel likes the idea of being in Dallas as well, after liking a tweet suggesting he make his way to America's Team.

.According to ESPN, Samuel has asked for a trade from the organization despite the two sides initially discussing a long-term extension at the beginning of the offseason.

The 49ers haven't shied away from trading prime talent before negotiations for a first-round pick. In 2020, San Francisco sent defensive tackle DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick

Buckner then agreed to terms on a four-year, $84 million contract extension, making him the second-highest-paid defensive tackle.

Cowboys COO Stephen Jones has been insistent that the Cowboys are not done making moves this offseason as well.

“We’re not done yet in free agency," Jones said. "We feel like we can go into the draft pure and take the best players on our board.”

Perhaps Samuel's success in San Francisco makes it worthy for the Cowboys to call 49ers' general manager John Lynch about coming to terms on a trade package. The starting asking price? Likely the No. 24 pick.

There are issues, questions and obstacles here. Does Dallas want to repeat its Amari effort? Are the Cowboys gun-shy there? What of the plan to have CeeDee Lamb (who happens to share an agent with Deebo) as the No. 1 wideout? Why derail that? Can a Deebo-like player be taken at 24 and be far more affordable than the $20 mil APY deal Samuel us going to want?

The Cowboys haven’t grappled with these questions yet regarding the Niners  star who “out-toughes” Dallas on the way to a recent playoff loss. But Deebo Samuel, at least on a surface level, obviously has.
