49ers Confirm They Were Unwilling To Trade No. 2 For Odell Beckham

Jed York confirmed the San Francisco 49ers pursued a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. with the New York Giants.

“We were definitely in it,” York said. “We were aggressive. But I think (the Giants) wanted different things than we had to offer. I think it would have been very hard for us to just give up a first-round pick and not get a ton in return, other than just the player, knowing that the second pick in the draft is a very, very valuable pick.”

The 49ers, however, did not pursue a trade for Antonio Brown.

The odds of OBJ having a better career than the second round pick this year are extremely high. OBJ is on pace to be a first time HOFer. That is a rare talent.
