Odell Beckham Jr. brings big name, big plays to Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. brings big name, big plays to Browns

After reports came out that the former Giants wide receiver had been traded to the Browns, Beckham jokingly expressed interest in living in LeBron James' Akron mansion, which the National Basketball Association star owns from his time in Cleveland with the Cavaliers before he signed with the Lakers last offseason.

This, she said, illustrates the difference between Beckham in private versus the public perception of him. They have made big splashes before, whether it be through a free agent signing or via a trade. Their best wideout, and one of the very best in the NFL. That said, Beckham will be a more regular opponent for the Patriots in the coming years now that he's in the AFC.

The embattled New York GM then got to defending the decision to ship Vernon and the popular Beckham out of town.

Peppers is a talented player who will also help to replace Collins at safety, but he is still developing and isn't on the level of Collins. Beckham finished the game with 12 targets for five receptions, 38 yards and zero touchdowns.

The Giants are GOING FOR IT ALL, clearly. Quarterback Eli Manning has been in decline which has hurt Odell's production.

But the Beckham trade removes all doubt.

And for a coach heading into the final year of his contract, like Garrett, needing to put together back to back playoff appearances for the first time since 2007, rebuilding is exactly what you want to see from a team in your division.

So congrats to the New York Giants front office on blowing the chance at building a championship contender this offseason just three days into it.
