The Niners-Seahawks rivalry is heating up as one of the best in the NFL. Deebo Samuel knows this quite well.
Seattle get the best of the first matchup in Week 10 of the 2019 season, as Russell Wilson helped lead the ‘Hawks to an overtime victory. The two sides met again in Week 17 in Seattle, with the division crown on the line.
After a back-and-forth affair, the Seahawks had the ball deep in Niners’ territory in the final seconds of the game. Wilson found tight end Jacob Hollister on a 4th-and-goal, but he was stopped just shy of the end zone as the Niners, with Deebo Samuel looking on from the sidelines, held on for the win and the NFC West title.
Seattle was bounced in the NFC Divisional round, while the Niners and Deebo Samuel made a Super Bowl run before falling to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Seahawks are hoping Adams can put the defense over the top with his playmaking and ability to cause havoc in the backfield.
However, Samuel’s mentality has not changed.
The second-year wideout is hoping to build on a rookie campaign in which he tallied 802 yards on 14.1 yards per reception, and also racked up 159 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
Deebo Samuel will need to get up to speed in a hurry, however, as he is dealing with a foot injury that could keep him out for the majority of training camp.
