INDIANAPOLIS -- Antonio Brown definitely is on the trade market, but the other top receiver to whom the 49ers have been connected is not available.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham is not being shopped on the trade market – at least that’s what New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said at the NFL Scouting Combine.
“We didn’t sign Odell to trade him, OK?” Gettleman said. “So I know that’s all over the place. So understand that. That’s all I need to say about that.”
In August, the Giants signed Beckham to a five-year, $90 million contract extension that included $41 million in full guarantees. Yet, rumors have persisted the Giants are willing to trade him.
The 49ers have not shown much interest in Brown, but the club would almost certainly be interested in Beckham.
Brown turns 31 in July. Beckham turned 26 in November. Beckham has also been involved in far fewer off-field incidents than Brown, who is in the midst of a messy divorce from the Steelers.
Brown has earned seven trips to the Pro Bowl. He has recorded six consecutive seasons with at least 101 receptions and 1,284 yards.
Beckham is a three-time Pro Bowl player who has appeared in just 16 games the past two seasons due to a fractured ankle in 2017 and a quad injury last season.
