49ers’ Deebo Samuel makes insane bobbling catch off Cardinals defender’s back
Heading into the 2019 NFL Draft, now San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel made a name for himself for his route-running, yards after the catch ability, explosiveness and speed, not so much his circus abilities. But, on Sunday, he showed that he can be a circus catch ace against the Arizona Cardinals.
Watch below. The rookie wideout made an improbable catch probable.

Samuel made the catch on the cornerback’s back, fumbles it, tips it over the defenders head, twists, sticks out an arm and hauls it into his body. Somehow, someway the rookie made the catch. He did so despite defensive pass interference called on the play. That’s called being a playmaker, and finding yourself to highlight reels across Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.
Heading into the matchup with the Cardinals, Samuel had 30 receptions for 339 yards and a touchdown. He is now attempting to help lead a comeback against the Redbirds. Circus catches help.
