Browns' Baker Mayfield defends Odell Beckham Jr

Postado Março 17, 2019

The San Francisco 49ers have had an eventful offseason thus far, adding players like Tevin Coleman and Kwon Alexander.

Addressing the Cleveland Browns' blockbuster deal for OBJ on Friday, Baker Mayfield had nothing but positive things to say about the ex-Giants all-star, particularly Beckham's colorful character.

"The 49ers were in several different times", Glazer wrote in The Athletic. "Multiple big-name stars means public fascination, and I think they would've won the division last season had they gone with Kitchens/Mayfield duo from Week 1".

It's not known if the 49ers made an offer that didn't include the second overall pick or if trade talks died with the Giants asking for it, but they at least showed interest in Beckham.

Instead of No. 2 overall - a pick that could have put the Giants in prime position to select Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray - New York walked away with No. 17 overall and No. 95 overall, as well as the aforementioned Peppers. So the connection was there, especially given the team's need for words receiver help.
