NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo is reporting that the New York Giants have traded their star wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., to the Cleveland Browns.
The Giants reportedly traded Beckham to Cleveland in exchange for a first-round pick (No. 17 overall), along with the Browns’ second third-round picks (No. 95) and safety Jabrill Peppers.
“The deal is done,” Garafolo tweeted. “I am not joking.”

The news comes just one week after Giants general manager Dave Gettleman insisted he didn’t sign Odell Beckham just to turn around and trade him.
Since entering the NFL in 2014, Beckham ranks third in targets per game (10.5), fourth in receptions per game (6.6), third in receiving yards per game (92.8) and third in receiving touchdowns, according to NFL.com.
