San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is standing behind his criticism of Philadelphia Eagles cornerback James Bradberry ahead of their rematch Sunday.

"I don't regret nothing I said," Samuel told reporters Monday when asked if he regrets calling Bradberry "trash."

Samuel made the comment about Bradberry while discussing the "holes" in the Eagles' defense on the "I Am Athlete" podcast in February. He then threw more shade at Bradberry on X after the cornerback was called for a holding penalty late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVII.

In response to Samuel's latest comments, Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown encouraged Philadelphia fans to troll him leading up to Sunday's game.

The matchup will be the first meeting between the two teams since the Eagles defeated the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. Philadelphia is currently first in the NFC East at 10-1, while San Francisco leads the NFC West at 8-3.
