The Cleveland Browns have acquired wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network.
Per Garafolo, the Browns will send their first and third-round picks, as well as safety Jabrill Peppers to New York in exchange for the 3-time Pro Bowl selection.
Considered one of the most dynamic receivers in football, the 26-year-old Beckham has spent the first five seasons of his career with the Giants, totaling 390 receptions, 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns. In 2018, the 5-foot-11, 198-pound receiver recorded 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and 6 touchdowns in 12 games.
In coming to Cleveland, Beckham reunites with fellow wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who he played alongside during his college career at LSU. He also joins an offense that will now be considered one of the most potent in all of football, featuring quarterback Baker Mayfield, running back Nick Chubb, Landry and newly signed running back Kareem Hunt.
Shortly after news of the trade broke, Mayfield took Instagram to share a picture of himself working out alongside Beckham and Landry last offseason.
