Via NBC Sports:

“You’re going to need to stay on him about his weight in the offseason,” Muschamp said he told the 49ers.

“Of course, he shows up a little bit overweight and (49ers receivers coach) Wes Welker takes him out for some 6 a.m. runs to get him back in shape. But I said, ‘You’re going to get a guy who’s a playmaker with the ball in his hands.’ He’s a receiver, but he’s got a big lower body. He runs through contact. He plays almost like a running back. They utilized him a lot in that manner.”

It’s not a huge deal if Samuel’s able to quickly work it off.  But you would hate for him to end up like first-round bust Kelvin Benjamin, who also had a hard time staying in shape during the offseason.
