Browns acquire Odell Beckham Jr

Adjust Comment Print

NY is sending its star receiver to Cleveland for first- and second-round draft picks in April and safety Jabrill Peppers in the second blockbuster trade in four days. That is where Jabrill Peppers exists, until he proves to the Giants and their fans that he is a worthwhile return for a superstar receiver. That speculation seemed to get squelched as the Giants and Browns conducted what looks now like a "minor" deal with the Browns acquiring Olivier Vernon and sending Kevin Zeitler to the Giants.

Who else could top this column on the night where the Browns GM, a man who developed his own unique style of swag, managed to pull off a blockbuster deal to land Odell Beckham Jr. from the Giants?

After the Redskins already scooped one of their best defensive players in Landon Collins, but the Giants' latest move has weakened them somewhat on the offensive side of the ball. Thomas is looking for a new team after spending the first nine years of his career with the Seahawks. Maybe they'll stink this year and they'll end up landing a high pick for the third straight season to draft a quarterback in 2019.

Beckham most likely would have made both potential touchdown catches in the Super Bowl that Cooks failed to haul in. "S*#% just got REAL!"

"I feel like in the past five years they found a way to run a Cover 2, keep everything in front, and that's how they play me - and there's no way to say "How do we beat this?" The Giants aren't actively looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr.

The Giants now own the sixth and 17th overall picks in the first round and there are several directions they can go in an effort to round out a roster that's suddenly become much less explosive on offense.

"Landry said he's talked to Odell Beckham Jr. and that he 'definitely would be" up for playing for the Browns.

Beckham played five seasons with the Giants and totaled 390 catches for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns. It was buzzing around Indy that the 49ers want him though. The Pro Bowl wideout, who's 26 now, has topped 1,000 receiving yards in each season that he's played in 12 or more games (four of five).
