49ers' Deebo Samuel Has Not Rescinded Trade Request

Jun 27, 2022 9:08 AM

Deebo Samuel has not officially rescinded his trade request, according to a report.

Samuel previously requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers due to his desire for a new contract along with some displeasure surrounding his role within the offense.

Thus far, the 49ers have been unwilling to grant Samuel's request.

"Well, we haven't traded him, and -- I've used the word fool -- I'd be a fool to trade him," John Lynch said earlier this month. "So yes, Deebo will be part of the 49ers this season."

Jimmy Garoppolo On Track, To Throw Soon

Jun 27, 2022 9:00 AM

Jimmy Garoppolo's timetable for throwing remains on schedule after offseason shoulder surgery, according to a source.

The expectation has been Garoppolo, who had the procedure on his right shoulder in March, will throw over the next few weeks after he's been cleared, and that plan remains in place.

Once the quarterback can pass a physical, the trade market for Garoppolo could heat up.

Tyreek Hill Received Death Threats After Patrick Mahomes Comments

Jun 24, 2022 10:31 AM

Tyreek Hill said on the latest episode of his podcast that he received death threats on social media after he said he thought Tua Tagovailoa was a more accurate passer than Patrick Mahomes.

"On every social media account I own, I got death threats on," Hill said.

Hill, who was traded by the Kansas City Chiefs to the Miami Dolphins this offseason, said on the first episode of his podcast that Mahomes had "the strongest arm, but as far as accuracy-wise, I'm going with Tua all day."

He also said that Mahomes might struggle without him and that he was underused last season, despite leading the team with a career-high 111 catches.

"I just feel like a lot of people overreacted for no reason. They really didn't see what I said. A lot of people are just acting off emotion," Hill said.

Goodell testified Wednesday before members of Congress at a hearing by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

An NFL owner can be removed only by a three-quarters (so, 24 out of 32) majority vote of fellow owners, although Goodell does have the ability to officially recommend such a vote.
