The Giants will also receive the Browns’ second third-round pick, as well as defensive safety Jabrill Peppers.

The Giants signed Beckham to a five-year $95 million contract in August 2018, the biggest ever signed by a receiver.

John Dorsey, Browns general manager, hopes Beckham will provide the power the team needs to become legitimate contenders in 2019.
