It was reported Wednesday that WR Antonio Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers after an altercation with his quarterback Ben Roethisberger and disagreement with heach coach Mike Tomlin.
Brown seemingly indicated which team he would like to see himself go to if traded, replying to 49ers TE Greg Kittle’s tweet inferring he join them with a heart-eyes emoji face.
Well, it looks like whichever route they go, the 49ers could land a super star WR this offseason.
if not Brown, Pro Football Talk has reported that the team could make a run at New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. if the he’s put on the trading block, a real possibility after another disappointing season in The Meadowlands.
The news comes on the back of last offseason’s reports stating the 49ers considered a deal for Beckham before the start of this season.
The 49ers went just 4-12 this season, no aided by the season ending ACL injury Jimmy Garrapolo suffered early in the year. Despite the record, 49ers skill position players did perform well, a prominsing sign for any big name that could joint the team next season.
