How Odell Beckham being traded to the Browns impacts the Eagles

The New York Giants set the National Football League world and social media ablaze on Tuesday with the agreed trade to send star wide receiver Odell Beckham the Cleveland Browns. The team also will send safety Jabril Peppers to the Giants.

Meanwhile, the Giants' crosstown rival New York Jets and star running back Le'Veon Bell have agreed on a deal, the now former Pittsburgh Steeler confirmed on Twitter, saying, "I'm back in the green baby, let's get it".

In trading for Beckham, the Browns are reuniting him with his best friend and former college teammate Jarvis Landry, whom Cleveland traded for nearly exactly a year ago. They haven't been to the playoffs since 2002. ESPN was first with the news, saying the agreement is for four years and $52.5 million. The 23-year-old Paramus Catholic High School (N.J.) product had 79 tackles, one interception, three fumble recoveries and a sack last season.

Early last season, with the Giants off to another bad start, Beckham seemed upset with his role in Shurmur's new offense and said quarterback Eli Manning was not capable of throwing deep passes. They signed Kareem Hunt in the offseason and have a number of other young pieces on that side of the ball.

If John Lynch can somehow snag Nick Bosa with the second overall pick in the upcoming draft, the 49ers defense could be potent in 2018.

"Like I said, I feel like he's not going to get out the pocket". Maybe they'll just go ahead and draft a quarterback this year.

His 288 receptions, 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns all are records for a Giants player in his first three seasons. He spent the last five years with Chicago. Not bad for a team that went 7-8-1 previous year. The Giants aren't actively looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr.

Coming off a season in which he had 1,052 yards and six touchdowns while only playing in 12 games is absurd to think about for a player with Beckham's talent.

Those results support a roster overhaul, and the last decade is proof that you don't need an elite No. 1 receiver to win a Super Bowl.
