Friendly rivalries are the best rivalries, aren't they?

Deebo Samuel stressed his friendship with A.J. Brown after the receiver called upon Eagles fans to 'troll' the 49ers wideout.

There's been a war of words between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles ever since what went down in the NFC Championship game last January.

For whatever the reasons, multiple parties on both sides either haven't let go or have been prompted to talk about it more and more, rather than being allowed to let it all go.

Niners All-Pro wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been at the center of many of those San Francisco-Philly discussions, stemming primarily from him calling Eagles cornerback James Bradberry "trash" after last season.

A very calm and quiet Eagles fanbase probably isn't going to react to that, right? Especially if one of Philly's top stars prompts the fans, right?

Well, Eagles star wide receiver A.J. Brown had some fun at Samuel's expense, encouraging all Philadelphia fans to "troll" the San Francisco wide-back on social media.

Samuel took it in stride on social media, and the two Pro Bowlers had a friendly exchange.

But, was it truthfully friendly?

Samuel, who's a regular guest with Kay Adams on the Up & Adams Show, was asked about Brown calling for him to be trolled on social media, and Adams reminded Samuel that it was he who even put Brown into MVP conversations.

Only to have Brown return the favor that way?

"It's all love. I think it's all fun and games," Samuel responded. "A lot of people are taking it a little bit overboard or a little bit too serious. At the end of the day, like I've said, we've been cool for a while now, so there's no hate toward any one of us or anything like that."

Probably just some good ole' rivalry fun between the two, right?

It's also important to note that both Samuel and Brown share the same agent, so it wouldn't be too productive for them to have an authentic beef between each other.

Even though that might be more entertaining.

Samuel and the Niners visit Brown and the Eagles this Sunday, Dec. 3 at 4:25 p.m. ET from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
