The San Francisco 49ers have signed defensive lineman Damontre Moore to a one-year deal. Moore was signed Wednesday and will join the team when it reports to training camp Friday. Moore spent about six weeks with the Niners this offseason before being waived on May 16.

Beckham eventually was traded to the Cleveland Browns and the 49ers never got an opportunity to top Cleveland's offer, something many believe they would have done, according to ESPN. In an in-depth look at the Beckham trade by ESPN's Pat McManamon and Jordan Raanan, it was revealed that rumors about a potential trade to San Francisco forced the Browns to make a play for Beckham, and the 49ers likely would have made a better proposal had they been given the chance.

The San Francisco 49ers signed defensive lineman Damontre Moore to a one-year deal on Friday, three days after the Alliance of American Football folded.

Moore, 26, has 10 career sacks in 54 games over parts of six NFL seasons.

John Lynch reveals details of 49ers' Odell Beckham Jr. trade talks originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com It's been well established that the 49ers were interested in acquiring Odell Beckham Jr. CEO Jed York told reporters at the NFL owners meeting this week that the 49ers were "aggressive" in talks for the star wide receiver, but they never really got close. Rumors have trickled out that the New York Giants asked the 49ers for the No. overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, something San Francisco was unwilling to part with for good reason.

The Cleveland Browns weren't the only team that wanted Odell Beckham from the New York Giants. Once the supremely talented Beckham was available, the San Francisco 49ers inquired. "I think, ironically, the fact that we had the No. 2 pick made it more difficult because they wanted that badly,” Lynch told KNBR.

The 49ers were apparently not willing to part ways with the No. 2 overall pick without getting the New York Giants' pick at No. 6 to acquire wide receiver Odell Beckham two weeks ago. CEO Jed York on Sunday at the NFL owners meeting was asked how close the 49ers came from landing Beckham in a trade. The Giants worked out a trade with the Cleveland Browns on March 12 to trade Beckham in exchange for the Browns' first-round pick at No. 17 overall, a third-round pick (No. 95 overall) and safety Jabrill Peppers.

Ohio State held its Pro Day on Wednesday, and defensive end Nick Bosa was there just to talk. Bosa, the potential No. 1 pick in next month's NFL draft, did not participate with the rest of the Buckeyes' pro hopefuls after performing well in drill work at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine.

The New York Giants maintained for weeks that three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was not signed to a lucrative extension in August to trade him just a few months later. The Kansas City Chiefs, meanwhile, placed the franchise tag on edge rusher Dee Ford last week. The price was right for the 49ers, who kept all of their 2019 draft picks to fill their biggest need with the best available player to get after the quarterback.

Nick Bosa meeting with 49ers, seven other teams at NFL Scouting Combine originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com INDIANAPOLIS - Nick Bosa has a full night scheduled for the eve of a full day of workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine.
