Deebo Samuel says everything that 49ers fans need to hear

Deebo can't be talking about his good friend and teammate, Brandon Aiyuk, right?

Deebo Samuel took to social media to remind fans of the 49ers (and other teams) that social media isn't some massive offseason tell-all.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is probably tired of hearing all the speculation, rumor and overanalysis surrounding his friend and teammate, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

There's a lot of it, in case you haven't noticed.

Aiyuk, who is seeking what promises to be a hefty contract extension this offseason, has been the subject of trade speculation ever since the Niners' Super Bowl loss last February. Granted, Aiyuk's own camp has fed some of these rumors with suggestions that he won't return to San Francisco in 2024.

And even Aiyuk has posted provocative posts on social media, including one where he asks if he and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin are lookalikes:

Paired with a report that Pittsburgh was possibly interested in trading for the 49ers' leading receiver over the last two years, it's easy to see why there are all kinds of thoughts about Aiyuk being on the move this offseason. Especially if the Niners aren't willing to bend to whatever contractual demands he has.

Whether or not San Francisco moves Aiyuk this offseason is a topic for another time, but it's safe to say Samuel is getting tired of the fluff and smoke surrounding the discussion.

Deebo Samuel sounds off on 'false reports'

It's important to note that Samuel went through a similar situation back in 2022 after his All-Pro 2021 campaign, which led to a contractual standoff and subsequent trade request that echoed all throughout social media.

Aiyuk, who tends to be a bit quieter and more reserved, hasn't expressed anything of the sort just yet, but Samuel is already sticking up for him.

On Wednesday, Samuel took to social media to share his thoughts on the subject:

"Can we have a life when football season over like can we travel enjoy our self go out n have fun without you 'fans' saying all this unnecessary s***," Samuel said on Twitter/X. "Folks be buggin!!!!"

The receiver followed up that post with another before announcing he wouldn't be back on the platform until July:

It's pretty clear that Samuel is getting sick of the attention (and worry) that surfaced in the wake of Aiyuk's trade speculation.

In short, Samuel is simply reminding everyone to relax.

So, relax.
