As if the 49ers and Eagles didn't need any more beef, AJ Brown is now asking Philly fans to roast Deebo Samuel on social media.
Both the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of bulletin board material ahead of their highly anticipated Week 13 matchup at Lincoln Financial Field, a rematch of the 2023 NFC Championship game, which Philly won last January to advance to the Super Bowl.
The Niners, of course, didn't hold back sentiments about that loss, mainly stemming from what could have been, if quarterback Brock Purdy didn't suffer a torn UCL in his throwing elbow.
And one of those players who was exceptionally vocal was wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who still doesn't regret any comments about Philadelphia and one player in particular, cornerback James Bradberry.
Samuel referred to Bradberry as "trash" last offseason when speaking on the I Am Athlete Podcast, and that certainly generated some buzz across the league in the wake of the Niners' NFC Championship defeat.
Needless to say, San Francisco and Philadephia for Week 13 was a game both sides had to circle when the NFL schedules were announced last spring.
And the smack talk wasn't going to just dissipate, right? Of course not.
Eagles' AJ Brown has 'friendly' call out to trolls to roast Deebo Samuel
With the 49ers and Eagles set to play this Sunday, Philly star wide receiver A.J. Brown took to social media to recruit Philadelphia fans to "troll" Samuel.
"You have my permission," Brown shared on Twitter:
The two had a rather friendly banter back and forth, including Samuel asking Brown to "leave me alone," to which Brown responded by looking forward to the upcoming contest between the two teams on Sunday.
It's important to note that it is friendly banter between the two, as they're both friends and just so happen to be represented by the same agent, Tory Dandy.
So, if you're thinking the trash-talking demeanor would get a bit more heated between these two rivals, it probably won't.
However, the fans have been invited in. And it won't take too long to comb through Brown's post to find some vitriol directed in Samuel's direction, as well as San Francisco fans tossing it right back.
Social media is the best, right?
The 49ers and Eagles kick off from Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 4:25 p.m. ET.
