49ers’ Deebo Samuel Signs Endorsement With Jordan Brand
BEAVERTON, OREGON — NFL player Tyshun Raequan Samuel also known as Deebo Samuel is the latest athlete to join the Jordan Brand family.
American multinational corporation Nike, Inc. announced that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver has signed an endorsement contract with its Jordan Brand.
“To me, it’s surreal and truly special to hear I’m joining the family,” Samuel said. “As a kid, all I wanted were J’s. Being a part of the Jordan Brand is something I’ve always wanted, and for it to be a reality is special to me. It’s a dream come true to be a Jordan Brand athlete and help carry this legacy forward to the next generation on and off the field.“
The 26 year-old South Carolina-native is the seventh NFL receiver to join Jumpman alongside Davante Adams, Chase Claypool, Stefon Diggs, Jarvis Landry, Sterling Shepard and Michael Thomas.
“I’m looking forward to inspiring the young football players and young kids out there who want to create greatness in their own way,” the 2021 Pro Bowler said.
Nike said he was selected as someone who could uphold the Jordan Brand‘s “standard of excellence.”
Samuel showcased game-changing versatility last season, tallying 1,770 yards from scrimmage (1,405 receiving and 365 rushing) and 14 total touchdowns across 16 appearances to earn a First-Team All-Pro selection.
The Niners and Deebo agreed to a three-year, $71.6 million contract extension in July.
“We are overjoyed to have come together with Deebo to keep him with the 49ers for years to come,” general manager John Lynch said. “Deebo has the rare ability to not only play at a unique level but to inspire his teammates with the way he plays. He is a special player that embodies ‘will meeting skill.’ We’re proud to move forward with him as an integral leader and foundational piece of our team.”
Samuel recorded 242 total yards in three games so far this season.
