  • Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is leaving New York

Beckham's name has been in trade rumors for over a year now, but seeing it come to fruition is still a shocker. OBJ got dealt, Lev Bell signed and things generally hit the fan.

In exchange, the Browns are sending a first and third-round pick plus Jabrill Peppers to the Giants. And don't forget, Beckham will line up alongside his former LSU teammate and close friend Jarvis Landry at wide receiver; their chemistry will be something special to watch. They didn't see the tremendous value for such a special talent. She also states that discussions remain ongoing. The team also will re-sign cornerback Darryl Roberts. Yes, the running back group is 95 years old combined, but there's some reliable skill guys there.

Wasn't this week supposed to be about free agency? Jackson is exactly what the Eagles needed at the wide receiver position and they gave up basically nothing to acquire him.

This means that the Giants now have the sixth pick and the 17th pick in this years draft which could mean one of two things.

Just how bad did the Rams look on offense? They haven't been to the playoffs since 2002. He's a physical freak who has some of the same downfield playmaking ability as Beckham, although he's not almost as elusive or explosive after the catch. Yeah, it is. Because it's insane. The result? Complete and total limbo.

Raiders to sign tackle Brown to $66M deal
In Brown, the Raiders add to a tackle position that certainly needed help, as they rolled with two rookie tackles in 2018. That said, Brown was traded for a year ago after former Patriots tackle Nate Solder left in the free agency.

Garafolo reports the deal is for one year and $2.25 million.

But Beckham has missed 16 games the past two seasons.

"I don't think we're a team yet to 'go for it, '" Dorsey said. 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. Who knows? It sure doesn't seem like the Giants do. Any buzz about him going somewhere else was nonsense, as this was a one-horse race from the start, with just the Jets negotiating against Bell. He's reportedly seeking the most money ever for a safety and is waiting for a team to meet his demands. So, if they really want to move up to get a passer, they will be able to outbid the Redskins. For Amos, it is a $37 million, four-year contract.

Dave Gettleman, the general manager for the Giants, has been denying throughout the offseason that he would trade Beckham. This year it was pass rushers Preston Smith and Za'Darious Smith as well as safety Adrian Amos. More than anything, they don't have the pillar quarterback around whom to build.
