The NFC East just lost a huge threat in OBJ’s exit.
It’s been speculated for a long time that the New York Giants have been fielding trade offers for Odell Beckham Jr., and consider it speculation no more. OBJ is out of the NFC East and is headed to the Cleveland Browns.

Here are the trade terms: Giants recieve a first-round pick in 2019 (No. 17 overall), the Browns’ second third-round pick this year and S Jabril Peppers, source tells ESPN. Browns get Odell Beckham Jr.

This is a gigantic move for the Dallas Cowboys and their division. Beckham is one of the best players in the NFC East and he is suddenly gone from it. New York is left with Eli Manning at quarterback but at least they have Saquon Barkley at running back. Still, their offense is now in serious question.
Of course, the Giants did net another first-round pick through the trade and could look to land Manning’s successor in the draft. Either way though, what Beckham has done through his first five seasons in the NFL is incredible and for the Giants to walk away from that is pretty bold.
Here’s to no longer having to face a receiver of his caliber twice a year!
