The Giants officially completed the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.

The Giants are receiving the Browns' first-round pick this year (17th overall), a third-round selection (95th overall) and safety Jabrill Peppers, who was a first-round pick in 2017.

“We’re very excited to have Jabrill,” Gettleman said. “A lot of people remember him from his days at Paramus Catholic. He’s coming back home. I spoke to him last night and he’s excited and thankful and couldn’t wait to get here. Jabrill is a quality safety in this league and he is a legitimate linchpin on the back end of your defense. The way this game is being played, your safeties are critical in pass defense.”

Beckham signed a five-year contract worth $90 million plus incentives last August. In 12 games in 2018, Beckham recorded 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns.
