No, you cannot take it now. 

First, a direct rollover is not considered a deductible contribution to an IRA (as stated by VolvoGirl). 

Second, if you had made a deductible contribution to the IRA in 2016, then it would have to be reported on your 2016 tax return.

A deduction for what?  A rollover is not a new contribution and is not deductible.  Did you report the 1099R?
