Better Rivals podcast: You might be better off avoiding free agents on offense

On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, our attention turns to the offensive side of the ball in our free agency preview. Are any of the free agent wideouts an improvement over what the 49ers already have on the roster? (15:39) What sort of trade packages would they realistically be looking at to bring in a player like Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr.? (27:20) And should the team be seriously considering bringing in a free agent to upgrade the right guard spot?
