What the Odell Beckham Jr. Trade Means for the Giants and the Browns

03/13/2019

Not quite sure what the Giants had in mind when they signed Odell Beckham to a 5 year, $95 million contract but this is certainly not it. OBJ is headed to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for two draft picks and Jabrill Peppers. The repercussions for both teams could be long term.

By pairing Odell Beckham with Jarvis Landry, Cleveland reunite the former LSU teammates and now field one of the best wide receiver duos the league as ever seen. On top of that, the Browns just gave one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the league another target to throw to. Drafting Baker Mayfield has been a clear change in direction for the Browns who are convinced they can win now. As for the Giants, they do not seem to have a clear direction.

The Giants receive a first and third round pick to go along with Jabrill Peppers, who was one of the most improved players in the league last season. Eli Manning is still the quarterback, no receivers to throw to and a young running back who may have to do it all on his own game in and game out. The Giants seem to have activated full tank mode in an attempt to get the quarterback of the future in next year's draft in Tua Tongvialoa. Eli Manning is in for a long season that will probably also be his last.

There are few good teams that fly under the radar quite as much as the Indiana Pacers. The team has been consistently solid for the past decade, but outside of a couple trips to the Eastern Conference Finals, they have not been seen as a serious threat come playoff time. With each of the Pacers' last five seasons ending in...
