After Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio broke the rumor on Friday that the Cleveland Browns were in talks to send draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers for head coach Jim Harbaugh, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that his sources within the organization denied the claims.

When Florio questioned him and asked why the sources hadn't gone on record, 49ers CEO Jed York entered the conversation to do that very thing and end the conversation with gusto.
