Football world reacts to blockbuster Odell Beckham Jr.-Jabrill Peppers trade

Share

The Giants received the Browns' first-round and third-round picks in 2019 along with safety Jabrill Peppers as part of the Beckham trade.

Jones, who has been with NFL Network since 2012, said this is the Beckham she hopes the world will get to know in Cleveland. Beckham finished the game with 12 targets for five receptions, 38 yards and zero touchdowns.

The Browns have options in free agency and don't have a pick until the second round of the draft.

The only problem with that plan is there is no Mahomes in this year's draft class, and Manning has not even been as good as Smith was in quite a while. And yet three head coaches (Coughlin, Ben McAdoo and Pat Shurmur), two general managers (Jerry Reese and Gettleman) and one team president and co-owner (John Mara) could never quite figure out how to manage Beckham and how to channel his boundless energy in a less disruptive direction.

It was clear over the last few seasons that Beckham Jr. had grown exhausted of the Giants and their losing ways. That leaves the Browns searching for his replacement at strong safety. He added that it appears the Giants want the first overall pick in 2020, which is hard to argue with right now.

Tuesday's trade was bigger than just losing a face of a franchise player.

I'm honestly baffled by Gettleman and the Giants front office lack of awareness to the fact that they had a window to build a contender with their core of players in their 20's, including last year's rookie sensation Saquon Barkley.
