@19problemz We are BLACK MEN! …We build… We don’t tear down other BLACK MEN!We have felt the pain of being torn down and we have decided we will be deliberate about building others!If I didn’t tag you don’t be offended.I tried to pick people I thought would do this challenge!! All too often, we men find it easier to criticize each other,instead of building each other up. With all the negativity going around lets do something positive!!! (Source)

Deebo Samuel was selected 36nd overall by the 49ers in the 2019 draft. In his rookie year, Samuel made a big impact on the 49ers with 802 receiving yards, 159 rushing yards, and 6 total touchdowns. Since Samuel was very productive after the catch, he was involved in a lot of screen plays which made him a threat in a variety of different situations.

With 49ers veteran receiver, Emmanuel Sanders, heading to New Orleans, Deebo Samuel is expected to take over as the San Francisco 49ers number one wide receiver.

When asked about his status, Deebo said, “Honestly, I don’t think I will change anything that I have been doing. Just continue to be me, even if it’s not being a number 1 receiver; just continuing to go out there and doing my job and bringing my teammates along.”

@19problemz Life is full of disappointments, failures and setbacks. None of those things can permanently stop you. Within yourself you got the power to overcome anything that life throws at you, the most powerful thing besides God to me is a made up mind and the mission I’m on as well as my teammates it’s no way a setback, adversity or anything else can detach me from the goal I’ve set. I’m surrounded by people who support me in the ways that matter the most. No person, situation, or circumstance can define who you are. I’m coming back harder than everrrr if you don’t believe me look at every adversity I faced then compare the bounce backs and you’ll get the picture. See you in 10 weeks ???? (Source)

Right after surgery, Deebo Samuel on Instagram Live said “Surgery went perfect, I’m telling you all in 10 weeks there will be a better Deebo than you have seen. I’m telling you. Legendary.”

Deebo suffered a Jones fracture which comes with a recovery period of 6-8 weeks.

However, last year, 49ers wide receiver, Trent Taylor, suffered a Jones fracture during training camp and was expected to return early that season. But even after two surgeries and an infection, Taylor missed the whole season.
