If available, the 49ers certainly would be interested in discussions with the Giants to add Odell Beckham Jr.

If you are anything like me, you got the notification that the New York Giants had traded Odell Beckham Jr. and you simply fell to the floor in disgust and shock.

In exchange for giving up Beckham, the Giants will receive the 17th overall pick in this year's draft, as well as a third-round pick and third-year safety Jabrill Peppers. On Tuesday in the midst of the wild National Football League free agency tapering period, ESPN's Field Yates revealed that Josina Anderson reported one AFC North team "continues to inquire" on Beckham. He sparred with then-Panther Josh Norman in a game, he punched a kicking net and cried on the sideline, and he also had a starring role in a controversial boat trip days before a playoff game and then in a viral video with a woman holding a credit card near a plate with lines of a white substance on it.

At the time, the notion was panned, especially by fans who did not appreciate the thought of Beckham being sent out of town, and they let Glazer know it - so much so that he felt the need to return fire.

Clearly, even with Beckham and budding star Saquon Barkley leading the way, the Giants still struggled this past season.

Early last season, with the Giants off to another bad start, Beckham seemed upset with his role in Shurmur's new offense and said quarterback Eli Manning was not capable of throwing deep passes.

A Friday deal between the Giants and Browns was thought to potentially have Beckham included - and the Brown reportedly did inquire about Beckham but were rebuffed - but it ultimately it was just a swap of guard Kevin Zietler and edge rusher Olivier Vernon between the two teams. But then when presented with an opportunity to definitively say he would not deal his star wideout, Gettleman declined to do so.

"There is talk out there that Odell could be traded", Miller confirmed.

Beckham is scheduled to make $16.75 million in base salary in 2019, according to Spotrac. He also comes off an injury-plagued year. He broke his left ankle during a Week 5 game against the Chargers in 2017.
