Giants trade Odell BeckhamJr. to Cleveland Browns in National Football League blockbuster

14 March 2019

The superstar wide receiver is bound for the Browns to be a target for quarterback Baker Mayfield as the centerpiece of a blockbuster trade, two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

Now, before that deal even starts, Beckham is on his way to the Cleveland Browns for safety Jabrill Peppers along with first and third-round picks in next month's draft. They are certainly not going to replace him with the 17th overall pick in the forthcoming draft. That could be true, but many seem to be forgetting that Peppers was a first-round pick just two years ago and is on his way to being a bona fide star. The Browns obliged and the sides mutually chose to cancel the deal struck earlier in the day. SportsLine did not project the Giants as a good football team before the Beckham trade and they are obviously a worse team, for this season, after it.

The embattled New York GM then got to defending the decision to ship Vernon and the popular Beckham out of town.

For the past decade, seeing the Cleveland Browns on the schedule was often viewed as a treat.

"I did not expect Beckham to get traded", Francesa said.

It's amusing to think that going to play for the Cleveland Browns is actually a better situation for Beckham than being in NY with that stagnant offense. The worry is that eventually, he will wear out his welcome as he did in NY.

In three seasons and six opportunities against Philadelphia, Becckham Jr. has amassed some serious numbers.

The Giants win total according to SportsLine doesn't move that much. They have their eye on taking a franchise quarterback, perhaps Oklahoma Heisman Trophy Kyler Murray or Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins. The Giants could be heading into 2019 with Barkley, Beckham Jr. and Darnold.
