Team 'convinced' Giants will trade Odell Beckham for right offer

  • Odell Beckham is off to Cleveland

Two people familiar with the blockbuster trade say the Cleveland Browns have agreed to acquire star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, Beckham's buddy from LSU, rolled out the red carpet on Instagram.

The Giants will receive the Browns' first-round pick in 2019 (No. 17 overall), their second third-round pick this year and safety Jabrill Peppers for Beckham, the source said. Since finishing the 2018 campaign at 7-8-1, Cleveland has signed former rushing-title victor Kareem Hunt, agreed to trade guard Kevin Zeitler to the Giants for pass-rusher Olivier Vernon, and reportedly agreed to terms with defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson on Tuesday during the free-agent negotiating period.

Though multiple reports state that the deal is done, it can not become official until Wednesday when the new league year begins. The deal is also conditional on Beckham and Peppers passing physicals. His arrival caps a two-year offensive rebuilding project for the Browns, who drafted Mayfield and traded for Landry after not winning a game in 2017. Not bad for a team that went 7-8-1 a year ago. While it's nearly unfathomable to consider the idea of two star wide receivers being traded in one offseason, the chances of it happening may be heating up.

In a referendum on 23 June 2016, Britons choose to end their membership of the 28-nation European Union by 52% to 48%. The Irish premier will accept the proposed new elements of the Brexit deal , the EU Commission president has said.

Lombardi also noted that Beckham has a "very short list" of teams he wants to be traded to, but that may not matter much.

Rumors of a possible deal have swirled for weeks, with several Browns players teasing a major move by Cleveland general manager John Dorsey on social media.

The three-time Pro Bowl player was originally selected by NY out of LSU with the 12th pick in the 2014 draft. The most notable of those was an acrobatic one-handed catch in a nationally televised game against the Dallas Cowboys that has become a staple of highlight montages.

General manager Dave Gettleman said at his end-of-year news conference and again at the National Football League scouting combine last month: "We didn't sign Odell to trade him. OK?" The Giants finished the campaign with a 5-11 record, their fifth losing season in the last six.
