The 49ers won't be getting Odell Beckham Jr.
The star wide receiver had been linked to San Francisco, but he reportedly has been dealt to the Cleveland Browns.
NFL Media's Mike Garafolo was first to report the trade Tuesday.
ESPN's Adam Schefter later confirmed the trade and provided terms.
Here are the trade terms: Giants recieve a first-round pick in 2019 (No. 17 overall), the Browns' second third-round pick this year and S Jabril Peppers, source tells ESPN. Browns get Odell Beckham Jr.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2019
Beckham Jr. has been one of the most productive receivers so far in his career, as he has totaled more than 90 receptions, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of the first three seasons of his five years in the NFL. His 2017 and 2018 seasons were somewhat marred by injury, but he's still considered one of the best wideouts in the game.
The three-time Pro Bowl receiver will join college teammate and longtime friend Jarvis Landry in Cleveland, which Yahoo's Charles Robinson noted might have helped make the deal quickly come together.
Part of the reason the OBJ to #Browns deal came together fairly quickly the last 24 hours, Beckham Jr.’s preferred destination was playing again with longtime friend Jarvis Landry. #Giants had been working the phones on Beckham Jr. hard since free agency opened.— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) March 13, 2019
NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reported that the 49ers were interested in adding OBJ, but they clearly were outbid by the Browns.
The 49ers long have needed a No. 1 receiver, and many fans were clamoring for general manager John Lynch to add Beckham or a playmaker such as Antonio Brown to give quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo a weapon.
But Beckham is heading to Cleveland, and Brown is in Oakland.
Meanwhile, Lynch's quest for a difference-making wide receiver continues.
