Odell Beckham Jr: New York Giants star traded to Cleveland Browns

The blockbuster move, first reported by Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, will see the Browns send the 17th-overall pick from this year's NFL Draft to the Giants, plus an additional third-round pick and starting safety Jabrill Peppers in exchange for OBJ.

Still, it is quite a haul of assets for a rebuilding Giants team and makes the compensation the Pittsburgh Steelers received for dealing Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders, a third- and fifth-round pick, look even worse.

There have been talks about the New York Giants considering moving Beckham since earlier in the offseason, but nothing has come to fruition.

The Bucs can thank the Browns trade for Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., for their latest addition.

In training camp last August, Landry told cleveland.com that his good buddy Beckham would like to join him in Cleveland.

The rest of the league weighed in on Twitter after the sudden news of the Beckham deal broke the internet. The 28-year-old Smith led the Ravens with 8½ sacks last season - including three in one game against Tennessee - and has 18½ in his 58-game career. The Browns had been mentioned since last week as a likely destination for him. But also throughout the National Football League where former Browns lineman Joe Thomas was among those to express his excitement about the deal. Before today, they were a solid young team who were on the rise.

Mayfield dined with Beckham and Bronco's pass-rusher Von Miller in January, and said at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards that he wouldn't mind having either here. Or maybe it's just the nature of the business that any free agent running back is going to struggle to really pull in a huge amount of money.

And just like that, a transcendent player is gone before ever winning a playoff game with the team that drafted him No. 12 overall five years ago. He spent the last five years with Chicago. However, fans would likely rather have Odell Beckham Jr. and the No. 6 pick instead.

He was NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014 and had at least 1,000 yards in each of the four seasons he was healthy. If you want to rebuild without Odell, you don't sign him to that contract. He finished with 16 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games.

With the move, the Browns' odds to win the Super Bowl LIV next season have increased.
