There's a viral Deebo Samuel t-shirt making the rounds on Twitter today.

On Saturday, shirts reading "Deebo Samuel Is Back" re-stocked in his official merchandise store. Talk about interesting timing.

However, a few fans have since pointed out the shirt was created last year. Regardless, it's probably not a coincidence the shirts were just re-stocked.

Is this an indication Samuel and the 49ers have worked things out?

Samuel requested a trade from the 49ers earlier this offseason. However, San Francisco's front office has been reluctant to trade one of the team's top players.

There had been speculation the 49ers would trade the hybrid WR/RB ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft. The Jets were reportedly a top suitor, but no deal came to fruition.

"The offer was on the table. The 49ers declined," wrote Max Goodman of Jets Country. "According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jets presented San Francisco with a trade package including the No. 10 overall pick of the 2022 NFL draft for wide receiver Deebo Samuel."

Now, the 2022 NFL Draft is almost in the books. That means it's unlikely Samuel is going anywhere anytime soon.

Will Samuel stick with the 49ers this upcoming season?
