The Browns already have the nucleus for an offensive juggernaut. Now, the Giants have traded their ace WR Odell Beckham, Jr. to Cleveland per Mike Garafolo on NFL Network.

OBJ is in the prime of his career and will certainly take the top off the AFC North’s division thus making the Browns the favorite to win the division.

The Giants have said that they would never let OBJ go cheap, and maybe they did. In return, the Giants receive the Browns first-round pick in this year’s draft at number 17, the second third-round selection at number 95, plus SS Jabrill Peppers.

The Giants recently let S Landon Collins walk away without placing the transition tag upon him, so the safety position was front and center for their defense. For the Browns, this most certainly will make their offense one of the most potent in the AFC. WR Jarvis Landry reportedly played a major role in talking up the Browns’ interest to Beckham:

Cleveland gets Beckham for a long time, too -- he is under contract through the 2023 season. This is not a rental; he is here to stay, as long as the Browns want to pay him. What is your reaction to the Browns trading for Beckham?
