The trade of Odell Beckham Jr. has New York Giant fans feeling as if the front office doesn’t care about them. First, they let All-Pro safety Landon Collins walk in free agency (to the Washington Redskins, of all teams, too) and then the insufferable indignity of sending OBJ to Cleveland.

Being a former vice president in a Fortune 500 company, I see what the Giants are doing here. It’s not personal. It’s business. Addition by subtraction.

In the film “Wall Street,” the Michael Douglas character advises the Charlie Sheen character to “never get emotional about money” because that’s when you make poor decisions.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is taking that advise as well. Sure, the fans loved these players, but the team wasn’t winning. Both ended up being too expensive to retain with so much infrastructure yet to be fortified.

The Giants actually used Beckham to replace Collins, adding 23-year-old Jabrill Peppers in the trade with Cleveland to team with veteran Antoine Bethea. Beckham is being replaced in the offense by veteran Golden Tate.

Yes, we know Tate is not the talent Beckham is, but can end up being better for the Giants’ offense. Sounds crazy, but it’s not.

The Giants’ offense performed just fine in the second half of the season in 2018 with running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram picking up the slack for Beckham.

Tate provides the Giants with a reliable, productive team-oriented presence on offense. He grew up a Giant fan. But here’s the big difference between Tate and Beckham: Tate plays every game.

Tate has only missed one game over the past five seasons, while Beckham has only played 16 games once in his five years with the Giants and appeared in just 16 of their last 32 games.

Deion Sanders once said, “You can’t help the club from the tub,” meaning if you’re hurt all the time, it doesn’t matter how great you are.

That had become the case with Beckham. He wasn’t on the field enough to make the complete impact the Giants needed him to. Tate will be there and the Giants, believe it or not, will likely be better off.
