Odell Beckham traded to Cleveland Browns from New York Giants

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is leaving New York

Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is leaving New York

Shaker Heights police responded to a frantic 911 Tuesday night for a juvenile running down the street screaming, only to find out he wasn't in danger or hurt, he was just an avid Browns fan excited for the Odell Beckham Jr. trade. Football fans in MI noticed, too, but not only because of Beckham going to Cleveland. The only question is: does Dave Gettleman keep them both or use one in a future deal? He averaged 78 catches, 1,095 receiving yards and just shy of nine touchdowns per season over the course of his career with the Giants. He was a two-year starter for the Browns who also handled most of the punt and kick return duties.

If things go terribly wrong, the Browns, barring a restructure, can get out of the deal without a salary-cap hit after the 2020 season.

Beckham, when healthy, is undoubtedly one of the best receivers in the league, as he three consecutive Pro Bowls and countless unbelievable catches will attest to. Last year, the Giants gave him a reported $95 million contract extension in August.

Many were expecting the Giants to take a step forward after going 5-11 in Shurmur's first season. So why not kick back at James place while King James rests in L.A.?

By unloading Beckham, the Giants have committed to Saquon Barkley as the face of the franchise. Manning is 38 and the team has only made the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012. I've felt that from the Carolina game where they didn't discipline him, they've ruined everything.

Who will replace Jabrill Peppers?

The Giants will get a second chance to draft a quarterback this year, with the No. 6 overall pick. A first-round pick in 2017, he struggled as a rookie but bounced back and played well last season.
