Report: Browns don't think pick dealt for Odell Beckham will yield 1st-round talent

If a report out of Cleveland Browns camp is to be believed, their deal for Odell Beckham Jr. is more of a bargain that meets the eye. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein said on the network's “Move the Sticks” podcast that the Browns didn't place first-round value on the No. 17 pick they dealt as the centerpiece of the package for Beckham due to a dearth of first-round talent in the upcoming NFL draft. “I had heard that the Browns considered there to be 15 players that are first-round player...

Why NFL insiders believe Raiders could be most improved team in 2019

Why NFL insiders believe Raiders could be most improved team in 2019 originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com Let's get this out of the way first: The Oakland Raiders had a rough 2018 season.

Gettleman goes on offense over Odell Beckham deal and Eli

The executive also defended quarterback Eli Manning, saying the belief the 38-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP can't play well anymore is a "crock." He laughed off the idea that the trade for 29-year-old guard Kevin Zeitl...

Giants GM defends Beckham Jr trade and says Browns 'knocked it out the park'

The New York Giants general manager, Dave Gettleman, has defended his team's decision to trade away Odell Beckham Jr, one of the best players in the NFL. The Giants sent Beckham to the Cleveland Browns in return for first- and third-round draft picks and safety Jabrill Peppers. Beckham had clashed with the Giants in recent seasons but many believe the Giants had given up one of the best wide receivers in the league cheaply – especially after they had only just paid the 26-year-old a $20m si...

10 hours that changed the NFL: Inside the Odell Beckham Jr. trade

The Giants wanted two first-round picks for Beckham, but I believe Gettleman knew that bounty might be tough to get because Beckham had proven himself a difficult player to handle. The Browns discussed some other players. But Gettleman, smarting from the prospect of losing safety Landon Collins in free agency to Washington (still hard to fathom why the Giants didn't franchise their unquestioned defensive leader, Collins, at $11 million for 2019), had studied one Cleveland player he wanted: ...

Golden Tate, who is not Odell Beckham, says the Giants are building something

The New York Giants traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, and the decision was derided to a nearly universal extent. A few days later, and the Giants have a new wide receiver on the roster in Golden Tate, who is unsurprisingly optimistic about his new team's outlook. He said so during an introductory media conference Friday, via the Giants' website: After speaking with (Pat) Coach Shurmur and my position coach (Tyke Tolbert), I'm really excited where we're headed.
