Cleveland Browns: 4 benefits of trading for Odell Beckham

Odell Beckham is off to Cleveland

In a move that is sure to send shockwaves through the NFC East and the entire National Football League, the New York Giants have traded wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., to the Cleveland Browns, Adam Schefter reports via Mike Garafalo. Gettleman insisted at the combine that he didn't sign Beckham to trade him, but rumors persisted that he was still on the block.

Make no mistake about this as the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns completed a stunning blockbuster trade Tuesday night. They haven't been to the playoffs since 2002.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

The Browns have had a busy offseason, signing troubled running back Kareem Hunt to a one-year contract, trading for Vernon and agreeing to a three-year, $39 million deal with defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.

It's 2019, and the Cleveland Browns are going to be legitimate contenders in the NFL.

On the back end, Peppers is a solid, young player, but he's nowhere close to as talented as Collins.

Beckham, 26, is arguably the NFL's most electric player - on and off the field. So, if they really want to move up to get a passer, they will be able to outbid the Redskins. He spent the last five years with Chicago.

Would the Los Angeles Rams ever consider a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. to provide Jared Goff with another risky weapon to work with in the passing game?

"Landry said he's talked to Odell Beckham Jr. and that he 'definitely would be" up for playing for the Browns.

In 12 games in 2018, Beckham had 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. But it sure does seem like he would have been better off, at least from the perspective of earning the most amount of money as early as possible, taking the contract the Steelers offered him.

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.

Bellamy has 76 career catches for 999 yards and five touchdowns, and is also a special teams contributor.
