Reports: Giants trade Odell Beckham to Cleveland Browns in NFL blockbuster
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Browns are sending their first (17th overall) and a third-round pick in this year’s draft along with safety Jabril Peppers in return for Beckham.
The Giants signed Beckham to a five-year, $95 million contract extension in August with $65 million in guarantees. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman had repeatedly said that the team had no intentions of trading Beckham.
“We didn’t sign Odell to trade him,” Gettleman said in February at the NFL scouting combine. “That’s all I need to say about that.”
