Deebo Samuel continues his beefing with Lions’ C.J. Gardner-Johnson ahead of their NFC Championship Game
During Friday’s pre-game press conference, the Niners’ star wide receiver Deebo Samuel was asked about how he’s feeling about having to face a guy like C.J. Gardner-Johnson.
I pay that no mind. He just gotta come in and strap it up.
Deebo Samuel said
Samuel and C.J. Gardner-Johnson have been involved in a long time beef ever since the 49ers suffered a defeat against the Philadelphia Eagles in last year’s NFC championship game. Gardner-Johnson was part of the Eagles team that defeated the Niners. Following the loss, Samuel claimed that they only lost in the game since QB Brock Purdy suffered an injury very early in their matchup.
Later, during week 6 of the 2023 regular season, the Cleveland Browns and the 49ers got into a pre-game scuffle. Gardner-Johnson used a clip from the scuffle and accused Samuel of hiding behind the Niners’ offensive lineman Trent Williams. Samuel responded by posting a clip of the defensive back getting punched during a game when he was with the New Orleans Saints back in 2020.
And then, the Lions DB escalated the beef during one of his Instagram lives by calling out Samuel and saying that he can’t hide behind Trent Williams every time. The next day, Deebo Samuel appeared on the Up & Adams show and accused Gardner-Johnson of being jealous of his money. And now finally, these two players will go head to head on the field after a lot of back-and-forth.
