Odell Beckham Jr. Traded to Cleveland Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. Traded to Cleveland Browns Beckham is being traded by the New York Giants in exchange for a first-round pick at the 2019 NFL draft.

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

The trade is a surprise as Beckham has played five seasons with the Giants and is considered one of the league's best wide receivers.

Dave Gettleman, Giants general manager, previously stated the team had no plans to trade Beckham.

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

Dave Gettleman, via New York Times On his new team, Beckham will be reunited with Jarvis Landry, an old teammate from Louisiana State University.

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

The Browns won only seven of their games in 2018, and haven’t made it to the playoffs since 2002.
