  • Odell Beckham offers emotional goodbye to Giants fans

Odell Beckham is no longer a member of the New York Giants, and the Denver Broncos were on a short list of teams he was interested in being dealt to. Cleveland also is expected to add defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and defensive end Olivier Vernon this offseason. The general manager really wants you.' And then later after that, a few hours leading up into what we said, he said he got a call from the general manager - that being Dave Gettleman of the Giants - saying we are going to trade you to the Cleveland Browns.

If nothing else, trading Beckham hurts the plan to get one more marginally effective season out if Manning.

The Browns and the Giants had the first and second overall picks in last year's National Football League draft.

The Giants have eight wins over the last two seasons while the Browns' seven wins previous year with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield had people thinking about a future postseason trip.

Browns acquire Beckham from NY
We'll see how it works out once we get actual numbers on Bell's deal and once we see him actually end up playing for the Jets. The Giants finished the campaign with a 5-11 record, their fifth losing season in the last six.


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.

ESPN's Josina Anderson was in contact with Beckham throughout the trade proceedings on Tuesday, and she detailed exactly how Beckham found out he was off to Cleveland.

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