Yesterday, the New York Giants reportedly agreed to send Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns for a 2019 first-round draft pick (No. 17 overall), a 2019 third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. The Giants were not actively shopping Beckham but they were listening to offers, and when they found one they liked, they made the deal — no doubt changing the course and direction of their team now and for years to come.
In another blockbuster deal, the New York Jets and former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell have agreed on a deal. ESPN first reported the signing and says the deal is for four years and $52.5 million. The deal gives new coach Adam Gase and second-year quarterback Sam Darnold a big-time playmaker, arguably the best player at his position before Bell opted to sit out all of last season rather than sign with Pittsburgh.
NFL free agency officially begins today.
