The San Francisco 49ers received news that their all-purpose receiver wants to leave the franchise. What teams could benefit from Deebo Samuel’s plethora of talents?

Finding players with diverse skillsets is a tough task for NFL general managers. As the game continues to evolve, the schemes of offenses gradually grow in depth. The role of a position-less player has found its way into offensive play-calling.

Athletes like Cordarrelle Patterson and Ty Montgomery opened the doors for offensive players to make an impact at more than one position. After requesting a trade from the San Francisco 49ers, Deebo Samuel plans (or hopes) to take his range of talents to greener pastures.

Could Deebo Samuel sport Philadelphia Eagles Green and Black?

Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles will be a team to watch this upcoming season. After sneaking into the playoffs in 2021, Nick Sirianni and his staff are preparing to build momentum.

Despite their efforts to shop the free-agent market for a quarterback, the Eagles are in a good position with Hurts as their franchise quarterback.

Philadelphia’s third-year gunslinger accumulated 3,144 yards passing last season. With limited options at the receiver, Hurts managed to have a decent season. His pass completion percentage increased by 9.3 percent, showing his growth as a passer.

Adding Deebo Samuel to the Eagles roster would cause issues for opposing NFC East coaches. Using agile players in the passing and running game has been an element in Philadelphia’s offense since the days of Chip Kelly.

Deebo’s ability to extend plays for more yardages will fit perfectly in the Eagles’ scheme. Samuel has maintained a 15.6 yard per catch average since entering the league in 2019.

Having a receiving option that makes completing passes easier will help Philadelphia’s young quarterback develop as a true passer.
