Odell Beckham Jr. Traded to the Cleveland Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. Traded to the Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield now has another high-end receiver in his arsenal, as Beckham soon will reunite with former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry.

So much for connecting Odell Beckham Jr.'s social media behavior to the Patriots.

Beckham's tenure in NY was by turns productive and turbulent. The deal also adds another $16 million in dead money to their running total.

That's a big haul for the Giants as they enter what could be a multi-year rebuilding mode, but what it does for the Browns could be franchise-changing.

We don't know if the Giants are actively shopping Beckham - i.e. if they are trying to find someone who wants to take the wide receiver - or if they are simply listening to teams who call and inquire. The Ravens cut him just before the end of last season, and he eventually caught on with the Browns. His contentment with sticking in Cleveland did not last long. During his first five seasons in the league, Beckham combined for 390 receptions (622 targets), 5,476 yards, and 44 touchdowns in 59 games (56 starts). He won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2014 after a 1,305-yard, 12-touchdown debut season and made global headlines that same year for his spectacular one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys on a nationally televised game. The Giants aren't actively looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr.

This means that the Giants now have the sixth pick and the 17th pick in this years draft which could mean one of two things.

Following the blockbuster trade that was reported on Tuesday, Twitter reacted instantly.

The Giants were in need of a playmaking safety after star defensive back Landon Collins selected the Washington Redskins in a six year, $84 million deal.
