Acquiring Odell Beckham Jr. won't come with a cheap price tag in a trade with the New York Giants. Not at all.
The Giants reportedly are asking for a hefty haul in exchange for their star wideout, and it could include the 49ers' No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. But Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports reports that draft pick is one the 49ers don't want to give up.
"The Niners have the No. 2 pick. The Niners wouldn't mind giving away a first-rounder for Odell. But they don't wanna give away the No. 2 pick. That is really valuable," Cowherd said on Tuesday.
"San Francisco wants him I'm told, really, really bad. But they don't want to give up the No. 2 pick."
"There's two teams that Odell Beckham Jr. would prefer to play with: Rams and 49ers... Jimmy Garoppolo with Odell Beckham would be one of most fascinating combos in the NFL." — @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/Kitm1UmuWv— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) March 12, 2019
The 49ers certainly are interested in getting Beckham Jr. to the Bay Area. And Cowherd reports the feeling is mutual for the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver.
"I have been told by two different sources, there are two teams that Odell Beckham would prefer to play with: Rams, 49ers," Cowherd said.
Forming a duo of Beckham Jr. and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo could be a nightmare for opposing defenses. Getting them on the same team, though, won't be easy.
