Deebo Samuel was spotted wearing a large necklace on the sidelines during the 49ers’ 31-7 win over the Rams on “Monday Night Football”.
Samuel started the series in the fourth quarter after a smooth start. He broke through the midfield, caught the ball and cut two defenders in the box.
So, what does that string mean? Samuel explains the origin story of the necklace after the match.
“The necklace came from [Jason Verrett], ” Deebo told reporters. “He’s done it for the team. Whenever you do a play, you put it in. So that’s the origin of it.”
Verrett was a starting full-back for the 49ers last season, but this year he has fallen victim to a torn Achilles and will miss the season. Obviously, the string of players is a way for him to stay attached to the team.

It makes sense that Samuel would join the console chain. He was the most dynamic threat on the pitch Monday night. He caught five 97-yard passes and one touchdown, while also scoring 36 straight and one point after five attempts.
However, Samuel remained humble despite performing. He even credits Jimmy Garoppolo for the throw that established his winning streak.
“It was just the fourth play, we called the breakout route, and it just opened up as widely as you can see, Jimmy got it right and it turned into an encounter,” Samuel said.
Deebo hopes to continue living up to his moniker – which stems from the bullying incident in the 1995 movie “Friday” starring Ice Cube – and beat opposing defenses as a threat. versatile. He’s averaging 115.4 yards per game this season and is second in the NFL in yards received just behind Cooper Kupp.
