Multiple Teams in on Trading for Odell Beckham Jr.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders are teams "most connected" to trade for New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. The Browns trading for OBJ has become one of the more popular rumors to come up recently but La Canfora said his sources indicate there's "nothing cooking" between the Browns and Giants. The Giants have not publicly said they're shopping OBJ but given all of the rumors coming out, it wouldn't be a shock to see the Giants move the talented wideout if the offer is right.

Pittsburgh Steelers Asking for Best Offers by Friday
From one possible WR on the move to another. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are informing teams to have their best offers for Antonio Brown on the table by Friday. The Steelers are still reportedly looking for a first-round pick in a deal but given Brown's recent behavior and contract demands, "Mr. Big Chest" isn't doing the team any favors with getting that in return. With this report of the Steelers wanting everyone's best offer, it would appear the end of Brown's time with the Steelers is coming to a close.
Chicago Bears Shopping Jordan Howard
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports multiple teams have asked the Bears about a trade for Jordan Howard at the NFL Scouting Combine. Howard struggled to gain momentum in new head coach Matt Nagy's scheme and discussions of Howard being traded have become commonplace around Chicago. However, Howard rushed for 2,435 yards and 15 touchdowns through his first two NFL seasons.
Kyler Murray to Arizona Cardinals is the "Worst Kept Secret in the History of the World"
That's at least according to CBS' Jason La Canfora. Per La Canfora, people close to Murray are "thoroughly convinced" Murray will be taken with the No. 1 overall draft pick. Murray to the Cardinals at the top of the NFL Draft continues to be the prevailing thought among NFL insiders. La Canfora also added the team will trade current starter Josh Rosen to the Washington Redskins for a third-round pick.
"I am thoroughly convinced [the Cardinals] are taking Kyler Murray first overall...they will be trading Josh Rosen.— CBS Sports HQ (@CBSSportsHQ) March 7, 2019
Rosen for a [3rd round pick] to Washington, that's what I figure is going to happen sometime in the next six weeks."
