New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman: ‘Trust me, we have a plan’

Cleveland also sent its 2019 first-round pick (17th overall) and the 2019 third-round selection (95th overall) they originally were dealt in a 2018 trade with the Patriots. "John [Dorsey] knew we weren't just going to give Odell away.there was considerable back and forth", Gettleman said on a Monday conference call, via the team's official Twitter. "Our plan is to address those positions, plain and simple", he said.

"This narrative that Eli is overpaid and can't play is a crock, I'm telling you", Gettleman said, adding he doesn't mind if people disagree with him. "As it turns out, the fact that he was signed for five more years made him very attractive and enabled us to get legitimate value".

The New York Giants shocked the football world last week when they traded their superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for safety Jabrill Peppers as well as a first and third-round draft pick. "Another team made an offer we couldn't refuse". "So, that was my litmus test", Gettleman said. You ask me about my mantra of quitting on talent, and yes, I believe that fully, but quitting on talent is when you cut a player or get marginal value in return, and we all know this did not happen here. Because if Beane and the Bills were interested in Brown from a football standpoint despite the things that made him no longer welcome in Pittsburgh, Beane should have been more than interested in Beckham from a football standpoint despite the things that made him no longer welcome in NY. Oh, and by the way, as a point of reference, it only happened once in league history, that was in '98 with Carolina signing (defensive tackle) Sean Gilbert off the franchise tag.

Entering his second season overseeing the Giants, Gettleman admitted the team is undergoing a rebuild and has multiple holes on the roster to plug.
