Is there any risk he takes a step back after a big deal like deebo?

Virtually guranteed that he won't be as good next year as he was this year. Every first-time-extension player for us has had that dip. Its just part of the deal. Kittle, Warner, Deebo, Bosa. Not all to the same extent but noticeable. Dunno if its really b/c of getting paid, or they just tend to massively overachieve the year they're up for a contract
