Per Adam Schefter, the Giants are getting a big haul from the Browns. The are getting Cleveland’s 2019 first-round pick (17th overall), the Browns second-round pick and safety Jabril Peppers, who was a first-round pick by Cleveland in 2017.
Paul Schwartz of the New York Post confirms the deal:
Confirmed: Giants have traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns for a first round pick (No. 17 overall), third-round pick and safety Jabril Peppers. Odell is gone.

All I have is WOW! Can’t say I saw that coming #13 to the Browns. Remember it’s a business. Fans gotta be going crazy! #nyg

How the Giants can deal Odell Beckham Jr. in an obvious tear-down move and still commit to Eli Manning in 2019 is crazy.

I mean I thought Odell wouldn’t finish his new contract here but I didn’t think they’d move on from him this soon.

Of course Gettleman said again at the combine he didn’t sign Odell to trade him. And last year he said you don’t give up on talent. So of course he traded him. The Giants are now officially the Miami Marlins. #TankingForTua
