Cleveland Browns and Giants revise terms of Vernon-Zeitler trade

He signed a five-year deal with the Giants in 2016 and was elected to the Pro Bowl two years later.

However, Glazer claims Cleveland wasn't his first choice with Los Angeles instead being his preferred destination, but the National Football League insider believes Beckham ending up in Cleveland is actually the ideal place for the 26-year-old. Odell is a great teammate and person. The decision backfired nearly immediately, as Beckham hinted nearly right away that he wanted out of NY, and the Giants got off to a 1-7 start.

Bet Cleveland to go over 9.5 wins, bet them to make the playoffs, and bet them to win a playoff game, because the value is too good to pass up. He'll be likely moving back to his comfort zone in Cleveland.

Some of the talking heads on ESPN are suggesting the Giants might package the 6th and 17th first round picks to move up a few slots and take a QB to replace Eli Manning. I understand he gets a bed rap, he is emotional, so I am I - we've connected on that level - but I do think there's a different side to him.


After Cleveland locked up that deal, Tampa Bay was able to convince Browns receiver Breshad Perriman to agree to a one-year, $4-million contract.

The Los Angeles Lakers star took some time away from his disastrous season by jokingly thanking the Browns for giving him the first ever Beckham jersey.

Two years ago, the Browns earned the first-overall pick in the draft after a winless season. Now? He was awarded the team's Ed Block Courage Award near the end of a 2017 season in which he played through a painful thumb injury. Cleveland now has eight selections starting with its second-rounder (No. 49 overall).

It's interesting to imagine what it would have been like if the Broncos were able to trade for Beckham.
