By the time this post is going out every NY Giant fan KNOWS about the trade….
There are a million different views….
The Browns have a strong and young QB that CAN throw….
For the NY Giants?
The deal they felt they could NOT walk away from…..
Dave Gettleman called Odell Beckham Jr. directly on Tuesday night to tell him he had traded him to the Cleveland Browns.
Beckham, 26, knew a year ago that Gettleman was talking to teams about trading him off the Giants. So it’s not like the GM’s phone call was unexpected.
In fact, in recent days, Beckham had wondered amid all the rumors of his departure whether he’d wake up one day on a different team.
But Beckham still was stunned Tuesday, according to sources close to him, that it actually had happened.
He is no longer a Giant. OBJ no longer will wear blue. He will be immortalized in his Giant uniform, reaching back for that iconic one-handed catch as a rookie in 2014.
But he is now part of the Dawg Pound. He is now a Brown.
And truth be told, this is best for Beckham…..
