Deebo Samuel could be cashing in after a terrific 2021 season.

The San Francisco 49ers and the wide receiver are interested in looking at a potential blockbuster deal in the offseason, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Samuel put together a breakout campaign in 2021 as both a pass-catching and rushing option, accumulating 1,405 receiving yards and 365 yards on the ground. His 1,770 yards from scrimmage ranked third in the NFL.

The 26-year-old put up 110 yards from scrimmage in the 49ers' wild-card victory over the Dallas Cowboys, with his 26-yard rushing touchdown being instrumental in securing the 23-17 win.

Samuel, who San Francisco drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, has one more season left on his rookie contract. He is due to make a base salary of just over $1.9 million in 2022, according to Spotrac.
