It sounds very simple enough for the New York Giants. All the Giants need to have to do is ship off 3-time Professional Bowl vast receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the San Francisco 49ers in a offer that would see the Niners trade the No. 2 over-all choose in the 2019 NFL Draft for the Giants’ own assortment at No. 6 over-all. It’s possible swap or throw in a several mid or late-spherical selections to make it all work, ideal?
Perhaps. And in accordance to Professional Football Talk’s Mike Florio, a probable blockbuster offer for Beckham among the Giants and 49ers is a real probability.
Here’s why it will not materialize, while.
Certain, San Francisco is in the industry for a vast receiver, significantly just after no Niners wideout even arrived at 500 acquiring yards in 2018. That is why the 49ers have been frequently joined to trade speculation surrounding disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown the previous several weeks.
In some ways, that would make much more sense than the Giants jettisoning Beckham. Brown has been incredibly vocal about his trade wishes, while there has been practically nothing of the kind from Beckham’s camp.
Participant wishes apart, a person has to fathom why New York would take into account these kinds of a offer in the very first position. Correct, it is hugely probable the Giants seem to April’s draft as a implies to at last come across an heir obvious for veteran quarterback Eli Manning. And in a thin quarterbacking class, a person which features basically 3 very first-spherical abilities (Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray, and Missouri’s Drew Lock), it is comprehensible why the G-Gentlemen could want to transfer up to that No. 2 over-all place.
For now, while, they could not need to have to.
A important franchise in the potential quarterback race on draft working day would have been the Oakland Raiders, who appeared incredibly non-committal to their franchise quarterback, Derek Carr, for a great deal of 2018. But his $19.9 million in guaranteed money for 2019 went formal on Feb. 6, indicating the Raiders will not reduce him, and trading him would be exceptionally much more hard than ahead of.
Why does that subject? Very well, the Raiders are choosing at No. 4 over-all in the NFL Draft. In advance of them are the Arizona Cardinals, 49ers, and New York Jets from spots a person via 3, respectively. None of those groups will be looking at quarterbacks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could, in concept, take into account a person at No. 5 over-all, but they by now picked up the fifth-yr alternative for quarterback Jameis Winston.
As points stand now, the Giants are the very first group on working day a person of the draft in need to have of a quarterback.
Granted, none of this gets rid of the probability of other groups trading ahead of New York to get a bead on a player like Haskins or Murray. Even if that transpires, while, precisely how does Beckham come to be the determine piece of a offer with the 49ers?
To solid even further doubt on these kinds of a offer, take into account what ESPN’s Monthly bill Barnwell explained to San Francisco’s KNBR 680’s Gary and Larry Present (h/t David Bonilla of 49ers Webzone):
I consider the Giants are however where by he stays. $16 million in useless money for them following yr if they trade Odell Beckham. All over again, I just never see the historic proof for it.
Odell Beckham is a excellent teammate. I consider when men and women distinction him to Antonio Brown, men and women in that locker space really like Odell Beckham. He performs super tricky. He’s there often. Can he be temperamental for the duration of online games? Of system, but it is not like he’s a bad teammate. Even to an extent that men and women would say Antonio Brown in some cases could be a bad teammate.
I never obtain that he’s transferring this offseason. I could be improper, absolutely, but I consider he’s going to stay with the Giants.
Barnwell later stated, if Beckham does wind up staying on the transfer, the Giants would question for at the very least two very first-spherical draft picks.
That poses a issue for the Niners. Even though a trade down may well be enough to fulfill component of New York’s asking value, dishing off a potential 2020 very first rounder isn’t precisely a thing a however-rebuilding San Francisco squad is in excellent place to do.
As much as the Giants are anxious, whose offense rated 16th in scoring past yr, how does transferring a player like Beckham, however just 26 yrs aged, make sense when he’s a person of the team’s top rated two weapons getting into 2019?
Correct, New York could be looking at “blowing it all up” and creating a new article-Manning period. The G-Gentlemen could also be having into account Beckham’s injury history the previous two yrs. However the reality of the scenario appears to stage a great deal closer to Beckham being place this period and not donning the purple and gold in 2019.
