Browns now heavily favored to land Odell Beckham Jr. in trade Trade rumors involving New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. have been brewing big time this week. It would now appear that the Cleveland Browns are the front-running team to land OBJ if a trade were to go down.

But now, this whole idea is hard to ignore. Even Beckham himself has been a little cryptic about a possible trade.

Before a training camp practice in August, I meandered through a line of Giants fans waiting to get seats for the afternoon workout and asked them their feelings on signing Odell Beckham to a long-term contract as part of a larger story.

The five-year, $95 million extension was still a few weeks away, and there was a noticeable uneasiness about the subject, almost like asking someone who they voted for and why. There was always a caveat. He can play here if he falls in line. He needs to prove to us that he’s all in on football. He should tough out more of those injuries.

Despite Beckham being one of the most singularly talented athletes in the franchise’s history, he never seemed to be fully embraced by a fan base that, at some point during the halcyon days of the Tom Coughlin era, had solidified their expectations regarding the team and what it means to be a Giant. We’ve seen these various mythos pop up over time in the NFL, almost always deteriorating at the first whiff of prolonged failure (how many will be fawning over the selfless Patriot Way three games into their second straight losing season when Bill Belichick is gone?) Beckham moonwalked in at a moment when the Giants were still about Eli and the General. Build the Bridgeand Finish. He amassed a Rolodex of gaffes that could be rattled off and instantly recognized like Seinfeld episode titles.

Report: Giants not actively looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr.

Report: Giants not actively looking to trade Odell Beckham Jr. Contrary to the seemingly endless rumors, the New York Giants are not actively looking to trade WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Justin Tuck has one message for New York Giants fans who think the franchise is not going in a good direction after trading Odell Beckham Jr: “Give it time.” “Long story short, I think Odell needed a new change of scenery as well as this team needed to move on and try to get what they got for him.

The Giants are signing safety Antoine Bethea, per source. He's 34 years old. Played under James Bettcher in 2017 in Arizona. This gives him familiarity in their defense and another veteran presence on the backend. The Giants were never going to spend big at safety (see: Tyrann Mathieu, Adrian Amos

The hamstring. The dog pee. The boat. The punch. The net. The fight. The interview.

There was never a horde running to his defense the way fans and ever-present alumni cocooned Eli Manning at the first sign of trouble.

Which is why the revisionist history these past few days following his trade to Cleveland for some picks and Jabrill Peppers feels a little tone deaf. The fan base ransacking the headspace of general manager Dave Gettleman for dealing away their best offensive weapon was, in its own small ways, enabled by their own questioning of Beckham’s value throughout his tenure, complaining on Twitter or to their human Hot Pocket filling of a local radio show host. Hell, Beckham even mentioned the division among fans in his farewell message. It’s not as if he didn’t feel it.

Giants discussing Odell Beckham Jr. trade

Giants discussing Odell Beckham Jr. trade The Giants are still involved in trade discussions with Odell Beckham Jr., according to a source who spoke with Jeff Howe of The Athletic. The Giants are still involved in trade discussions with Odell Beckham Jr., according to a source. One of the league’s best wide receivers remains on the market. — Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) March 11, 2019 We’ve been hearing conflicting reports on OBJ’s availability, but it appears that one of the league’s best wide receivers remains on the block. The Giants, we heard, would not seriously entertain offers unless they were "overwhelmed" by another club's pitch.

Got a text from a Giants fan friend asking how he could buy a Gettleman jersey just so he could I guess I can see why Giants fans are mad. Now is the time to check in with all your # Giants fans One year after giving him an extension, the Jaguars are moving on from their former first-round

Thomas gave this giant more than a nudge – he skied right over it and before he knew it, he was skiing on top of it as it slid down the mountain along with him. As Thomas sank beneath powder, through his acute panic he managed to pull the cord on his airbag. The roar of the giant fell silent seconds later

Maybe Beckham wasn’t perfect. Maybe he was a good guy and a lot of people in those training camp lines didn’t seem to notice, or didn’t want to. Maybe good teams don’t win with star receivers, so it won’t matter anyway. Or maybe they do.

But it’s hard for the outside football world not to think that this is isn’t a little bit deserved; a reality that enough fans willed into existence over the past few seasons. Beckham travels to a place so thirsty for competent football play that the cops were called on a fan running in circles on his front lawn celebrating the acquisition. So far, they seem happy to receive him as is.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday morning that he has since deleted, Beckham announced he is going “dark” from social media and his cell phone and “takin an emotional, mental, physical/blah blah blah vacation.” He said he is doing well but asked that people not call, text or FaceTime him unless it is extremely important.
