While most of the San Francisco 49ers’ offseason aim has centered on a attainable trade for Pittsburgh Steelers huge receiver Antonio Brown, it’s wiser to hope for the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham as an alternative.
Niner Noise’s superior buddy, Al Sacco of 49ers Webzone, brought up an excellent stage: San Francisco’s fanbase has mostly been enamored with the concept the Niners need to take a look at a serious probability the Pittsburgh Steelers would be eager to trade disgruntled huge receiver Antonio Brown this offseason.
Nonetheless Sacco designed the argument the superior goal, as an alternative of Brown, would be New York Giants star wideout Odell Beckham Jr.
Positive, there has been a lot much more smoke powering a attainable Brown-to-49ers offer. Aside from the quite a few tweets, which not long ago involved Brown bidding a premature farewell to Pittsburgh, Hall of Fame huge receiver Jerry Rice even got concerned.
But Brown’s off-discipline activities have occur beneath scrutiny as of late, which has led much more than a couple to feel a blockbuster trade in between the Niners and Steelers will not occur, even if Pittsburgh’s asking value seemingly takes a hit on a just about every day foundation now. On major of that, Brown will change 31 decades previous by the time the 2019 normal season commences. Is he able of replicating the kind of efforts that helped him attain seven Professional Bowl nods with the Steelers?
Positive. Nonetheless what about mixing in all the rest?
As NBC Sports activities Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco just pointed out, there surface to be much more drawbacks against a attainable Brown trade to San Francisco than positives. More considerable negatives, at minimum. And even Maiocco doesn’t consider this kind of a trade would occur.
That stated, what about the proverbial “smoke” powering a January 2018 report from Professional Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggesting the 49ers could make a press for Beckham?
Florio pointed out the Giants’ capacity to transfer Beckham’s deal, with five decades and $74 million remaining, is “very tradeable,” significantly if New York is experience really serious about receiving equally younger and much less expensive this coming season.
As Burack pointed out, Glazer’s takes and stories are not of the “let’s see if this sticks” wide range. He has a superior keep track of record of getting accurate with points, which indicates the concept of Beckham getting on the trade block is pretty serious.
Additionally, Beckham is nevertheless just 26 decades previous and entering the prime of his vocation. Positive, he’s dealt with injuries the earlier two seasons. But that could provide to generate a would-be asking value by New York down a little bit.
It’s possible Beckham is the player 49ers followers need to be wanting to know about on the trade marketplace this offseason, not Brown.
