Deebo expected at Niners' minicamp, source says

Deebo Samuel expected to attend San Francisco 49ers mandatory minicamp, source says 9:12 AM ET ESPN San Francisco 49ers star wide receiver Deebo Samuel is expected to attend the team's mandatory minicamp, which starts Tuesday, despite his recent request to be traded, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Samuel skipped the voluntary portion of San Francisco's offseason program after publicly acknowledging his trade request in April, amid his hope for a lucrative long-term contract. Samuel declined to offer specific reasons for requesting the trade but acknowledged that he has informed the Niners of his desire to leave.

Samuel's trade request came at a time when the salaries for wide receivers have skyrocketed. The Raiders gave Davante Adams $28.5 million per season on an extension after trading for him, and the Dolphins signed Tyreek Hill to a deal averaging $30 million per season one week later after acquiring him from the Chiefs . Buffalo's Stefon Diggs and Philadelphia's A.J. Brown also received lucrative deals this offseason. ESPN's Nick Wagoner contributed to this report.
