Busy day capped with trade for Odell Beckham, Jr

Three-time Pro Bowler Odell Beckham Jr. is heading to Cleveland

Three-time Pro Bowler Odell Beckham Jr. is heading to Cleveland

The fantasy author felt more betrayed than Catelyn Stark at the Red Wedding after the New York Giants traded away Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday.

It's amusing to think that going to play for the Cleveland Browns is actually a better situation for Beckham than being in NY with that stagnant offense.

There are zero indications the Cowboys ever even entertained the notion of working a deal for Beckham, or that the Giants would ever trade him within their division so he'd face them twice a season. He had 77 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 2018.

Zeitler, whom the Browns signed as a free agent in 2017, started all 16 games in each of his two seasons in Cleveland.

This isn't to say the Browns are going to be disappointed in the deal at all.

Reactions to the trade poured in, including from Mayfield, who posted a photo of OBJ, Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and himself on Instagram as well as posting a single word on Twitter: "Movement". Our reasoning: Hopkins might be the best receiver in the league, and his five-year, $81 million contract (which runs through 2022) now seems like a bargain.

Landing Beckham is his signature move, a signal that he believes the Browns are on the verge of a Super Bowl run.

Vernon, 28, is coming off his first Pro Bowl season after piling up seven sacks and a forced fumble over 11 games. They were looking to improve their offensive line, get some pass rushers and shore up the defense, which struggled in coordinator James Bettcher's switch to a 3-4 front. The Giants could be heading into 2019 with Barkley, Beckham Jr. and Darnold. If they do, I feel sorry for that quarterback.

Who will replace Jabrill Peppers? Cleveland also gave up its first-round draft pick and third-round draft pick.
