Deebo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers have reportedly agreed to the terms of a three-year, $71.55 million contract extension that could be worth up to $73.5 million. That puts Samuel’s average annual salary for new years added between $23.85 million and $24.5 million.

Samuel is expected to earn a base salary of $3.87 million in 2022, the final year of his rookie contract. Where does Samuel now rank among 49ers players in terms of average salary when looking only at his extension money? He takes the No. 2 spot, becoming the No. 1 spot once the 49ers retire the quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from the list.
