Pittsburgh got a 3rd and a 5th for Antonio Brown. The Giants, by contrast, should get 5 or 6 starters in this deal, between Peppers, the draft picks and the cap relief.
Never believed the rumors,

and i'am a little bit confused now,but i trust DG and maybe it's really the best for this franchise!!
At least he is closer to Canton now...

I don't give a shit about his boat trip. I do give a shit about his drops in the GB game.

Even as bad as we've been he won us more games than he lost for sure, but his inability to grow up was frustrating.

guy did a lot for the franchise - gets a quick call from Gettleman - "Hey, you're going to Cleveland." Pretty classless if that's how it happened.


What should he have done, brought him out to lunch to break the news? If Mara and Gettleman were fed up, thatís on beckham and getting a phone call is what was deserved.

I really liked Beckham, I didnít want him traded but it sounds like he was going to start dictating how business should be ran. He got traded, end of story.

he didn't have the leverage to do anything but play out his contract.

sometimes you part ways with an employee - generally good thing to try and be professional and classy when its' done.

You can isolate on the dropped TD if you want, but since when is that a mortal sin? It's not enough that he's a top 5 player, there's no room for not catching every pass? That's a strange standard, that he has to be perfect.

In that same game, he also played out of his mind after that point and tied the game in the clutch with a massive play.

ManningLobsItBurressAlone : 3/13/2019 7:30 am : link
the posters here saying that "Peppers is the other 1st rounder," when trying to justify the return. He is not, he has burned 2 years off of his rookie deal already, and we only have him for 2 more at a cost controlled rate, before the 5th year option. Most of the major benefit of a new 1st round pick is having those 4 years, and Peppers does not. I don't see that as equal, especially when his play has been a tick above average (really only recently).

DeepBlueJint : 3/13/2019 7:34 am : link
Antonio Brown went for what? OJB went for what? We have the 6th, 17th and 38th. Hmmm.

Evidently, star receivers are not that valuable.

Meanwhile, I recommend the G-men acquire free agent Keven White, trade their 38th to Arizona for Josh Rosen and use the 6th and 17th pick for DEFENSE starting with Sweatz.

AB and Beckham  
lpdcan28 : 3/13/2019 7:36 am : link
are two of the best wrs in the game.
steelers get a 3 and 5 for AB
giants get a 1, 3, and a good safety.
apparently there must of been other factors that led to this beckham trade. so is this trade as bad as many are saying it is?

Anyone calling Odell Beckham a cancer cannot be taken seriously. And the least intelligent thing anyone can write is some version of "Well, we didn't win anything with him" as if he was the main reason why as opposed to a defense that has been bottom of the sport awful 4 of the past 5 seasons.

Shockey saying they won nothing with him is just a fact. Doesnít mean it was his fault, just that it wasnít working.

I feel cheated  
Torn Tendon : 3/13/2019 7:52 am : link
Plax ended that offense early. We never got to see Smith and Nicks together in their prime. Same for Nicks and Cruz. And Cruz and Odell. Now Odell and Barkley has been taken away.

My fear now is that the Giants will use the two 1st rounders to move up for a QB and that QB ends up as a bust.

I would feel better if they trade down with the 6th, perhaps the 17th for draft capital in 2020. But, chances of that are slim to none.

Let's look at two scenarios. Scenario 1 is what would have happened if they hadn't given OBJ a long-term deal and franchised him for 2019. (Remember, the Giants didn't use their franchise tag this offseason.) Scenario 2 is what actually happened.

Scenario 1: $8.5 million paid to Beckham in cash, $8.5 million on the Giants' 2019 cap, $0 in dead money on the 2019 cap

Scenario 2: $21.5 million paid to Beckham in cash, $5.5 million on the Giants' 2019 cap, $16 million in dead money on the 2019 cap

The cap issues are meaningless compared to the comparison of what we could have traded OBJ for last year, coming off the injury, versus now.

We could have PERHAPS gotten a 1st for him. Now we've gotten a 1st, 3rd, and Peppers, along with a ton of cap space next season.

I'm not in love with the trade, but I think we did better than if we'd either traded him last year or franchised him (because if he was a headache with a huge new contract, imagine what he would have been like playing under the tag).
If the Giants  
JonC : 3/13/2019 8:20 am : link
get their ER at #6 and an OT prospect at #17, they will have solidified two major weaknesses.

Now they need two WRs, and SS isn't far from his walk year in the slot.

Things change on a dime in the NFL. Fans here thought the defense would wreak havoc after 2016 ... never happened. OB in the HoF wearing Giants Blue? Probably not gonna happen.

"antics" were never that bad, but the Giants obviously disagreed. Many others have cited the specifics. Other teams knew the Giants were weary of Beckham, and that invariably reduced his price. It wasn't a fire sale, but he was traded at a significant discount.

We need to move forward now, and hope that Gettleman finds good players with the new draft picks. We also need to hope that Peppers is our long term safety.

I read the first three pages of this thread and most of the posts echo my sentiments as well.

I've been a die-hard Giants' fan for over 50 years and although I'm not going to lie to myself and claim that I'm done with this team, I am really pissed!!!

Fuck Mara for dictating this trade needed to be made.

Fuck DG for getting a shitty return.

And now that I think of it, fuck OBJ as well. If OBJ had acted more like a professional our over-reactive ownership wouldn't have felt they had to trade him.

I wonder if Mara will have the balls to step in front of a microphone and at least explain this to Giants fans. Doubtful!

At this point I fully expect that the next move this team will make is to extend Eli. Clueless John probably thinks that's what we want.
