Giants Trade Odell Beckham Jr. To Browns

Beckham is close friends with Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and the two of them will be catching passes from second-year QB Baker Mayfield.

The New York Giants have traded star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, according to multiple reports Tuesday night. On Saturday, Pittsburgh sent unhappy wideout Antonio Brown to Oakland, a deal Brown forced. It's worth noting the Patriots will host the Browns this season.

In two years with the Browns, Peppers had 137 tackles, 2 interceptions and a sack.

While Beckham is immensely talented, there is some baggage as he can be temperamental and hard. The team also will re-sign cornerback Darryl Roberts. This year it was pass rushers Preston Smith and Za'Darious Smith as well as safety Adrian Amos. The Packers also cut veteran linebacker Nick Perry. No, it isn't the fact he's four years younger.

Meanwhile, Gettleman, the Giants' general manager, couldn't keep his story straight about whether he was looking into dealing Beckham.

"Unfortunately for us, the market is irrational at times and we can't be held responsible for what other teams want to pay", DeCosta said.

'All we can do is try to negotiate in good faith with agents and the players'.

But that deal, and the announcement that the Browns had acquired Sheldon Richardson in free agency is dwarfed by this deal.

Not that the Jets fell short in adding talent. The 26-year-old is signed through 2023. And last season, he missed the final four games with a quad injury. He will be a centerpiece of new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' unit.

The Redskins, Bills, Bengals, Cardinals and Dolphins - all 100-1 at Westgate - are now the only teams that are bigger longshots to win Super Bowl 54 than the New York Giants.

In response to the move, a number of current and former National Football League players took to social media to express their surprise at the magnitude of the trade, the fact that Cleveland looks like it's going to be awfully unsafe going forward, and the Giants moving one of the best receivers on earth. For his career, he has 390 receptions, 5,776 yards and 44 touchdowns.

The Packers did this a year ago too, by the way, spending big on Jimmy Graham and Muhammad Wilkerson. He then agreed to the same deal with the Bucs, a source told cleveland.com.

For all his ability, the Giants have had just one winning season in the five since Beckham was drafted. That 2016 team, bolstered by a defensive free-agent spending spree, went 11-5 but lost in the first round of the playoffs; over the last two seasons NY has won a total of just eight games, and changed the head coach and GM. But Los Angeles signed Eric Weddle last week to be Joyner's replacement. A first-round pick in 2017, he struggled as a rookie but bounced back and played well last season. Just three opening-day starters from 2016 remain on the team's roster: Eli Manning, Sterling Shepard and Janoris Jenkins.
