The rumors have finally become reality, the New York Giants have traded star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.
Odell Beckham Jr. is headed to the Browns in a stunning trade that sees the Giants moving on from their All-Pro receiver.
Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Giants have agreed to trade their All-Pro wide receiver to theBrowns where he’ll be reunited with former LSU teammate, Jarvis Landry, sending shock waves through the NFL.
The two sides have been linked in trade talks for a while now throughout the offseason, but a deal between the two has finally been struck.
The five-year professional has had a tough time in New York and is now getting a second probability to work with a younger star in Baker Mayfield. The Browns have been aggressive throughout this offseason, overhauling their teaching workers and being lively within the commerce market in addition to in free company.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the compensation for Beckham is the Brown’s 2019 first spherical decide (17th total), the Brown’s second of two third spherical picks, and younger security Jabril Peppers. Fairly the ransom for a large receiver after the Steelers did not get a primary spherical decide for his or her star Antonio Brown.

This aggressiveness is refreshing to see from a franchise that has been downtrodden for almost all of the final decade. Beckham transforms the Browns offense and solely provides to the intrigue surrounding the group.
