49ers Were \'Stunned\' When By OBJ Trade, Would Have Offered Better Deal

The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly \"stunned\" when the New York Giants traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.

Dave Gettleman and John Lynch had been talking about a possible trade for weeks.

The 49ers never ultimately heard from the Giants before the trade was made. It\'s strongly believed the 49ers were willing to offer more for Beckham than the Browns, according to a league source.

Gettleman never shopped Cleveland\'s deal around in hopes of a better trade.
