Browns acquire Beckham from NY

If things go terribly wrong, the Browns, barring a restructure, can get out of the deal without a salary-cap hit after the 2020 season.

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.

Reactions to the trade poured in, including from Mayfield, who posted a photo of OBJ, Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and himself on Instagram as well as posting a single word on Twitter: "Movement". Beckham engaged cornerback Josh Norman in the octagon, lost a fistfight with a kicking net, proposed marriage to said kicking net, took a boating vacation before his terrible playoff performance against Green Bay - and then punched a hole in a Lambeau Field wall - and sat with Lil Wayne and ESPN's Josina Anderson and questioned everything from Eli Manning's arm to the team's heart.

On his personal website, Martin wrote an entry titled "Kill me now" which tore the Giants limb from limb for their decision to deal Beckham. I never would have thought that was possible. At the risk of rambling even further, I'll just tell you that Browns fever has been highly contagious since Baker Mayfield started dropping dimes last November and the Browns won five of their last seven games. "[Leaving NYC is] bittersweet, but it is what it is".

Beckham will cost the Giants $16 million in dead cap space this year as a result of him being traded, with NY freeing up $5 million in salary cap space.

The Cleveland Browns landed one of the best offensive weapons in football and simultaneously turned the team they acquired him from into the laughingstock they used to be. Despite missing four games last season, he still logged 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. The worry is that eventually, he will wear out his welcome as he did in NY.

"I'm extremely excited about the opportunity to be part of this organization and the direction they are headed", Beckham said in the news release. After spending the vast majority of his career at defensive end, he lined up as an outside linebacker in the Giants' 3-4 defense this past season. That's better than the Chargers, Bears and Colts (all at 16-to-1), as well as the Vikings and Eagles (both at 20-to-1). The Giants were not going to win next season anyway.

Manning set a career-high for completion percentage (66 percent) previous year, but the eye test has shown a cooked quarterback for about three seasons. He'll be likely moving back to his comfort zone in Cleveland.
