Giants trade WR Odell Beckham Jr. to Browns for two draft picks and safety Jabrill Peppers

Mar 12, 2019 at 4:58 PM--

The rumors surrounding New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will come to an end. In what could be the biggest storyline of the 2019 offseason, the 26-year-old is headed to the Cleveland Browns, not the San Francisco 49ers, via a trade, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

The Giants will receive the Browns' No. 17 overall pick in this year's draft, the team's second third-round pick (No. 95 overall), and safety Jabrill Peppers in exchange for one of the NFL's best receivers, Garafolo revealed on-air.

The 49ers had long been linked to Beckham. The team was believed to love the receiver but reportedly never really got into deep discussions for the receiver. San Francisco owns the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming draft as well as No. 36, and No. 67, so the team had the resources to get a deal with the Giants done.

While rumors surrounding a Beckham trade have circulated since the end of this past season, most within the New York media never truly believed Giants general manager Dave Gettleman would go through with it.

"We didn't sign Odell to trade him," Gettleman said in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine. "I know that's all over the place, so understand that. That's all I need to say about that."

Beckham signed a five-year extension worth up to $95 million with the Giants on August 27, 2018. He registered 77 receptions for 1,052 yards with six touchdowns through 12 starts with the Giants in 2018. Beckham was inactive for New York's final four games of the season due to a quad injury.

The Giants made Beckham, who played college football at LSU, the No. 12 overall selection in 2014. He has caught 390 passes for 5,476 yards with 44 touchdowns through his five NFL seasons.

Beckham is a three-time Pro Bowl selection. He finished four of his five NFL seasons with 1,000-or-more receiving yards. The one exception was in 2017 when Beckham's missed most of the season with a fractured left ankle.

George Kittle joined comedian Kevin Hart on his LOL Network show, Cold as Balls (h/t TheSFNiners). The San Francisco 49ers tight end discussed football, his desire to win a Super Bowl, his love of Harry Potter, his cosplay of choice if he went to San Diego Comic-Con, and more while submerged in an ice bath. Kittle also revealed his desire for the NFL to add a second bye week for NFL teams. "Seventeen games is a lot," Kittle told Hart. "It's a lot of games with one bye, whether it's Week 4 or the bye is Week 11. I'm advocating for two byes. If you can get that to happen, that would be cool." Hart assured the tight end that it was a done deal. Kittle also cleverly avoided

A dark-horse trade candidate for the 49ers ahead of the 2022 season

For much of the offseason, many 49ers fans have believed the team will move on from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, either via trade or release. However, three months after the beginning of the 2022 league year, the veteran signal-caller still remains a member of the franchise as he rehabs from shoulder surgery. Additionally, at the linebacker position, many have clamored for the 49ers to trade Dre Greenlaw, given that he's a free agent in 2023 and currently carries a cap hit of $2.54 million after signing his tender as a restricted free agent. Fellow linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair broke out last season while Greenlaw missed 14 games due to multiple injuries, creating a formidable duo at the position with former All-Pro Fred Warner. However, there's a dark horse trade

PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth

49ers and Trey Lance: There's a storm brewing in The Bay

Second-year San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance is mentally and physically preparing for war. During organized team activities (OTAs) and mini-camp, we heard from Lance, his coaches, and most importantly, his teammates. The commonality in what they shared about the young quarterback was his confidence and leadership. How does a young kid who didn't see much playing time during his rookie season prepare for year two? It's simply his confidence. Confidence isn't something you develop overnight. Instead, it's something that evolves through adversity. Lance received a Division I scholarship to the University of Minnesota to play linebacker. However, he wanted to play quarterback, so he took his talents to North Dakota State, where he red-shirted his freshman season
