@MikeFrancesa
I hear Browns, who are clueless, looking to trade Odell


Kick the tires?

OBJ's salary is more of an issue than his personality if there's even a remote desire to bring him back.
OBJ for Engram?

There's nothing like experiencing frustration and failure to get someone to think "My way isn't working so great. Maybe I should try it their way."

Probably a joke but no thanks.
he has no guaranteed money after this year  
UConn4523 : 9/15/2020 12:53 pm : link
so if he's traded he's going to either want A. and extension or B. future salary converted into guarantees. That's the risk trading for him from a financial standpoint.
no longer

Why?

You could get OBJ just with one E now probably.
I have no use for OBJ  
Rick in Dallas : 9/15/2020 12:55 pm : link
He quit on the Giants. It was the right move to trade him. I remember all the heat DG took from BBI and the talking heads for that trade.

Not true at all. He isn't the weapon he once was but he's still got plenty. The question is about motivation and attitude which is completely different and justified.

As far as comp Cooks was traded (along with a 4th) for a 2nd - so I'm guessing that it would have to be atleast be in that range.
Can't resist this one...  
truebluelarry : 9/15/2020 12:58 pm : link
I'll give them Tate & Engram  
90.Cal : 9/15/2020 1:01 pm : link
for OBJ.
No thanks  
eli4life : 9/15/2020 1:01 pm : link
I don’t think the other players would like the poop smell in the locker room 😂
Take him as long  
Bubba : 9/15/2020 1:04 pm : link
as the Browns pay 2/3 his salary.
Can't kick tires  
Des51 : 9/15/2020 1:05 pm : link
that are flat.
Engram stinks  
Gman11 : 9/15/2020 1:11 pm : link
but at least he isn't a malcontent. So, I wouldn't do that trade straight up. In fact, I can't think of a reason the Giants would want Beckham back even if it was in exchange for a bag of kicking tees.
Bold Prediction  
Trainmaster : 9/15/2020 1:13 pm : link
OBJ ends up on the 49ers where he originally wanted to go.

49ers have nothing at wide receiver.

Browns ask for a 2nd rounder and settle for a 3rd rounder plus a non starting player.

I  
AcidTest : 9/15/2020 1:14 pm : link
was being facetious. I don't want OBJ, and I'm sure the Giants don't either. The 49ers are a possibility as someone said, assuming this rumor is real.

“I’m going to have to get adjusted to the speed because he has an arm,” Beckham said, according to Cleveland.com. “He throws that ball hard. Just catching from him the first day, it was like, ‘Wow! This is completely different.’”

FatMan in Charlotte : 9/15/2020 1:38 pm : link
like SF may have to decide whether Odell the talent is worth the disruption that comes with it.

Just being able to catch a ball is one thing - doing it while not derailing a team atmosphere is another
Odell

I agree, I think it could happen. They have some cap room and can make more if need be.

I'm not saying this for hyperbole, if I am a contending team, I wouldn't want OBJ on my team for free.

future Jet.
Another Shockey  
weeg in the bronx : 9/15/2020 1:46 pm : link
Loads of talent, could have been a NY icon, forces his way out because of his ego and ultimately becomes an afterthought. Id say it a terrible shame but he got a huge contract out of the deal!
I'l give you Louie Dumps  
ghost718 : 9/15/2020 1:46 pm : link

you are all like jilted lovers  
HomerJones45 : 9/15/2020 1:47 pm : link
the Browns should trade Odell because Mayfield sucks and can't/won't get the ball to him down the field. He's wasted on the Browns and the Browns might as well trade him and get something they can use
He will do well in Houston  
George from PA : 9/15/2020 1:47 pm : link

Also, let's not forget that there were a few people who proposed trading Beckham well before DG actually did, and they were treated like Galileo.
3 x ~$15M after this year  
bigbluehoya : 9/15/2020 1:49 pm : link
with $0 guaranteed is a worthy gamble for somebody. I wouldnt give up a lot, but an exchange of broken toys or a mid/low draft pick wouldn't be a bad move, even for the NYG.

I'm sure I'm in the minority on that view, but to me the upside well outweighs the downside given the ability to cut financial ties cleanly at any time.

I expected  
BigBluesman : 9/15/2020 1:57 pm : link
Beckham to rebound some this year. He's not who he was but he has enough to become relevant again for another season or two. I'm starting to think that Baker Mayfield is what will hold him back from that. Look at the stat line from Sunday. No way OBJ dropped all those passes. If he is traded, I would expect him to produce better.

Maybe a little to early to say for certain but all signs point to that they seemingly have transitioned from one franchise QB to another. That isn't common, or easy for a GM to do, and even that alone would make it plainly clear that DG hasn't been a disaster.

Only time will determines how good a job he has done as the Giants GM. If he gets the QB, head coach, and a few other pieces in place that go on to compete for championships, then he will have been a very good one.
Anyone look on a Browns fan site?

He may have gotten the QB right which is obviously a feather in his cap but his FA moves have been atrocious and we have already cut a 1st round pick whom he used 3 picks on. He has squandered assets and this team still looks woefully deficient in talent despite having almost 30 draft picks the last few years.
He'll end up somewhere  
David B. : 9/15/2020 2:11 pm : link
Guys like him always do. Probably in the NFC East.
He needs career rehab in Foxborough.  
glowrider : 9/15/2020 2:22 pm : link
I’d like to see him moved to the slot where he may still show off elite short area quickness. The sooner that happens, the better. Those soccer skills could be very handy and he can still get his numbers.

SuperRonJohnson : 9/15/2020 2:23 pm : link
for OBJ!
OBJ's cap number  
kdog77 : 9/15/2020 2:30 pm : link
According to overthecap.com, OJB's current contract counts about $14-15M against the cap over the next 4 years. That is pretty reasonable for #1 WR in the NFL. I don't want to trade assets to get OBJ back, but I can imagine that playoff caliber teams with holes at WR would probably take look. The 49ers seem to make the most sense from needs perspective, but Browns would probably have to eat $6-7M of his 2020 salary to make it work with their current cap number.
7th round pick and EE for OBJ  
NYG007 : 9/15/2020 2:30 pm : link

Okay, I’m gonna recycle from the OBJ poop thread.  
Crispino : 9/15/2020 3:08 pm : link
We need a #2 receiver like OBJ.😆
And let’s get real. Unless OBJ can play center or tackle, he’s....  
Crispino : 9/15/2020 3:10 pm : link
far from the help we really need.

What coach would want him? He could have went to the Patriots with Brady, I think they could have handled it. I don't think the Patriots would want to mix him with Cam. What has he done since his injury? If he was open, he would be posting it to Twitter. I don't think he is the same guy anymore. He had elite separation...had.
this place is weird  
djm : 9/15/2020 3:24 pm : link
just about everyone hates spending money on players but now you want to trade back for BEckham?


I wouldn't trade anyone for him. He isn't a bargain anymore even if he plays well, and i'd love him here if he was still a great player. He isn't. And he's expensive. Don't get me wrong I love a good make up story and I think Beckham's rap here is more myth than reality, but this is a business. We traded him at the right time.
They are trying to trade him because...  
BillKo : 9/15/2020 3:27 pm : link
.... he's not the same player he was or at least the same player they thought they were getting.

He's been banged up a bit - admittedly defenses were taking borderline cheap shots at him the first two years - and he also had the couple of other injuries which have slowed him into a good receiver - but not top echelon anymore.

And now you get the weirdo attitude BS w/ the guy.......not worth it.
Beckham for Peppers, Lawrence, and x-man  
Blue Dream : 9/15/2020 3:39 pm : link
I could see Gettleman doing it just to spite the fans and the media who killed him last time.
