Odell Beckham Jr. Traded To Cleveland Browns

Tuesday night, that smoke became a reality: The Browns have acquired wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

With the Browns, Beckham will be reunited with receiver Jarvis Landry, a close friend and teammate at LSU.

The Giants trading Beckham would likely take a pretty strong haul, but the Browns aren't shying away from making big moves. It made him the highest-paid receiver in the National Football League at the time and seemed to cement his place on the Giants roster. 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). They'll have to eat $16 million in dead money against the salary cap this season, but will gain $5 million in cap room. They included the Browns and San Francisco 49ers, according to sources.

The reported Beckham deal only adds to the flurry of fireworks over the past few days in the NFL, and the insane part is, the new league year doesn't even begin until Wednesday.

Giving Mayfield a duo of Landry and Beckham, along with young tight end David Njoku could push the Browns offense to another level in 2019, and they look like the team to watch here. Only Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints recorded more (321).




Cleveland has been busy this offseason.

The Giants were in need of a playmaking safety after star defensive back Landon Collins selected the Washington Redskins in a six year, $84 million deal.

Whether it be reports that he was a bad character to have in the locker room, getting in fights with Josh Norman, or proposing to a kicking net, Beckham was always in headlines for something new. Their odds to win the AFC went from 12-1 to 7-1, behind only the Chiefs and New England Patriots (3-1).

"Absolutely", Browns pass-rusher Myles Garrett told NFL Network when asked if Cleveland is now the team to beat in the AFC North.
