All-Pro receiver Deebo Samuel signed a three-year extension with the San Francisco 49ers in time to take part in the team’s first padded practice. The two sides finalized the deal Monday that will pay Samuel $71.55 million with $41 million guaranteed at signing.

The deal ends a monthslong saga that began before the draft when Samuel publicly demanded a trade. He stayed away from the team for the voluntary portion of the offseason but reported for minicamp in June and training camp last week.

Samuel took part in practice Monday, participat­ing on a limited basis in both team and individual drills as he works his way back up to speed.
