New York Giants trading WR Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns

The New York Giants and Cleveland Browns shocked the football world Tuesday night with the trade that sent Odell Beckham, Jr.to the Browns for a first- and third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

The Giants get the Browns first-round pick, a third rounder and safety Jabril Peppers in return for the talented wideout. Do you think the Browns got the better of it?

Beckham is close friends with Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and the two of them will be catching passes from second-year QB Baker Mayfield. The last time the Giants won, in the 2011 season-also the last time they won a playoff game-their top receivers were Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham. Crowder, whose deal reportedly is for three years and $28.5 million, had 221 catches for 2,628 yards and 14 touchdowns in four seasons with Washington. The 23-year-old Paramus Catholic High School (N.J.) product had 79 tackles, one interception, three fumble recoveries and a sack last season. The Browns had been mentioned since last week as a likely destination for him. They will use the 17th pick to package it in hopes of trading for Josh Rosen, or they are preparing to draft a quarterback at six and potentially an offensive lineman at 17. They signed Kareem Hunt in the offseason and have a number of other young pieces on that side of the ball.

Beckham, 26, is arguably the NFL's most electric player - on and off the field.

Both countries cite the removal of Jackson's music as a response to listeners' reactions to the documentary. At this stage, no United States or United Kingdom radio stations have confirmed their intention to do so.

Beckham was the No. 12 overall pick of the Giants in 2014 out of LSU. Maybe they'll just go ahead and draft a quarterback this year. Over the past week or so, there's been plenty of smoke surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. potentially being traded to the Cleveland Browns. The Pro Bowl wideout, who's 26 now, has topped 1,000 receiving yards in each season that he's played in 12 or more games (four of five).

Odell Beckham seen November 25, 2018. But it sure does seem like he would have been better off, at least from the perspective of earning the most amount of money as early as possible, taking the contract the Steelers offered him.

With the move, the Browns' odds to win the Super Bowl LIV next season have increased.
