When considering the Odell Beckham Jr. trade orchestrated by New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman and Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey, it’s safe to say, both sides aren’t exactly happy with the return. However, Giants fans can sit back and enjoy the madness Beckham is once again stirring, as Brown’s fans are already imploding.
Big Blue ended up with Kevin Zeitler, Jabrill Peppers, Dexter Lawrence, and Oshane Ximines in the deal. It’s fair to include Zeitler due to Olivier Vernon being a cap-cut casualty anyway. Gettleman managed to gain an integral piece on the offensive line for a lost cause, who has been a ghost for the Browns since making the move.
Beckham, on the other hand, has gone six straight weeks without recording 100 yards or more through the air and has just three touchdowns on the season with a quarterback who was expected to be better in Baker Mayfield. This is a testament to Eli Manning’s skill-set and how well he was able to utilize Beckham over the years.
The New York Giants don’t miss Odell Beckham Jr.:
Several days ago, Beckham made a controversial statement, stating, “no one knows what the future holds.” Of course, the media had a field day with his comments, but he made it clear he wanted to be in Cleveland pursuing a playoff birth this season.
However, Browns fans have already begun singing a familiar tune.
Unbelievable, it took all of 12 games for the Odell Beckham Jr, the drama queen diva every bit as egocentric as AB, to implode & ask out of Cleveland. Unforgivable mistake by John Dorsey to fork over a #1 pick, Kevin Zeitler and Jabrill Peppers for such a meager return.

Odell Beckham vague on future with Browns amid worst season
â¦@objâ© are you fucking kidding me what did you think you were going to throw your spikes on the field and then win the Super Bowl this year? We need guys like you and Baker to be leaders https://t.co/Pp0uezgv9c

This marks only three tweets out of the 10’s I scrolled past in less than three minutes. Not that the Giants are any better with OBJ on the field, but the drama has quieted down significantly since his departure. The losses continue to pile up, and head coach Pat Shurmur has emerged as the target for every adverse event.
New York has one of the more intimidating media networks, and that’s a reality players and coaches sign up for when they elect to try and resurrect an organization desperately gasping for air.
