Odell Beckham Jr. trade has Giants fans questioning their very existence

Odell Beckham Jr. trade has Giants fans questioning their very existence

He'll never admit it, but outside of Cleveland, no one was happier than Jason Garrett to see Odell Beckham Jr. leaving the NFC East.

It didn't take long for both Channing Frye and Jordan Clarkson to sound off in the comments, warning Beckham that he's going to have to trade in his shorts for fur when he lands in Cleveland. After Beckham's trade to the Browns, Gilmore will still have to cover Beckham in 2019 - it's just that Baker Mayfield, not Eli Manning, will be throwing the ball.

"And now they have traded OBJ".

Trading away top pass rusher Olivier Vernon and allowing Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins to walk in free agency were great clues that NY probably wasn't going to be competing for the NFC East title this season.

Saints to sign running back Latavius Murray to 4-year deal
Ingram, also 29, is a two-time All-Pro who put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in New Orleans in 2016 and 2017. He started 19 of 34 games, including two playoff games, since signing as a free agent two years ago.

Beckham has missed 16 games over the last two seasons, but he was still very productive in 12 games last season (77 catches for 1,052 yards, six touchdowns).

Peppers is a talented player who will also help to replace Collins at safety, but he is still developing and isn't on the level of Collins. This, as we now know, was clearly a misleading statement to the Giants' fan base.

I'm honestly baffled by Gettleman and the Giants front office lack of awareness to the fact that they had a window to build a contender with their core of players in their 20's, including last year's rookie sensation Saquon Barkley. You're probably right. He asked if there was an outstanding talent coming out of next year's draft, and there are quite a few - but they're mostly pass rushers.
