In return the Giants will get a first-round pick, a third-round pick and safety Jabril Peppers.
Player reaction on social media ranged from disbelief to giddiness as players absorbed the news.
Beckham was drafted by the Giants, became a superstar and presumably felt he had a home when the Giants signed him to a huge extension past year. Dorsey pulled it off, bringing a major talent to accelerate his attempt to rebuild the Browns into consistent winners.
On Wednesday, the four-time MVP posted a picture on his Instagram account of Beckham Jr. wearing a Browns jersey, along with the message "OH MY!" Although they were one of the worst teams in the league past year, the Raiders look like they're finally getting some talent. He signed an $84 million deal with the Washington Redskins and NY got nothing immediately in return - except the right to now face him twice a year. With the trades of Vernon and Beckham, those questions are sure to continue. General manager John Dorsey has turned the tables.
"Then, when you talk about the players. And that's all you can ask for".
Trading Beckham to the Browns is a sign of two teams heading in opposite directions, and the Browns are the one pointing up. Great hands, great work ethic, committed, competitive, he really wants to be great. The Giants passed on drafting the successor to Eli Manning, selecting instead running back Saquon Barkley. After adding OBJ to the mix to play alongside his former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry, expect the Browns offense to be explosive and the team to eclipse the 10 win mark.
