Odell Beckham Jr. trade has Giants fans questioning their very existence

Beckham's move will see the Giants receive the Browns' first-round and third-round picks this season, while safety Jabrill Peppers will join NY. However, in the end, he landed in Cleveland. That Tigers squad also included Browns wide receivers coach Adam Henry.

The Steelers got a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick for Antonio Brown.

Odell Beckham Jr. has been an out-right star ever since his one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys on National TV a few years ago. The Giants passed on drafting the successor to Eli Manning, selecting instead running back Saquon Barkley.

Barkley may still be around, but now Beckham is heading to Cleveland, it looks like NY could still be another year or two away from returning to the level of contender in the NFC since the offense appears to have even more questions in need of answering at this point in the offseason.


There are zero indications the Cowboys ever even entertained the notion of working a deal for Beckham, or that the Giants would ever trade him within their division so he'd face them twice a season.

Upset and sometimes embarrassed by his on-field emotional outbursts and off-field controversies, the Giants dragged out a decision on Beckham's future until just before the start of his fifth season, signing him to a five-year extension worth $90 million with $65 million guaranteed.

The Browns were coming off an 0-16 season and used that first pick to draft quarterback Baker Mayfield.
