The San Francisco 49ers have had an eventful offseason thus far, adding players like Tevin Coleman and Kwon Alexander.
The Cleveland Browns were able to pry wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. away from the New York Giants earlier this week in exchange for a first-round pick, a third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers, but they nearly got more from the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers were in several different times. "Multiple big-name stars means public fascination, and I think they would've won the division last season had they gone with Kitchens/Mayfield duo from Week 1". Someone with the Giants told me they were asking for the second pick of the draft from the 49ers, which the 49ers weren't willing to do.
Glazer received criticism from some on the prediction as the Giants were posturing publicly that they wouldn't trade Beckham. That's a significant haul, but there's a big difference between the No. 2 overall selection and the 17th pick. So the connection was there, especially given the team's need for words receiver help.
