Peppers, a 2017 first-round draft pick, was sent to the Giants as part of the Beckham deal.

Discussing the topic of Odell Beckham Jr. getting traded from the Giants to the Browns, New York-based NFL Network reporter Kim Jones had an emotional, personal story about her relationship with the wide receiver.

Jones, who has been with NFL Network since 2012, said this is the Beckham she hopes the world will get to know in Cleveland.

The Giants will get a second chance to draft a quarterback this year, with the No. 6 overall pick.

Manning set a career-high for completion percentage (66 percent) previous year, but the eye test has shown a cooked quarterback for about three seasons.

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. The man has killed off more beloved characters in his books than you can even imagine, and they have been formed into one of the most popular TV shows ever.

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.

"We're very excited to have Jabrill", said Gettleman.

One can imagine what Giants fans think of the move. In committing franchise-player money over five years to a genuine star, then bailing on him less than seven months later, the Giants organization showed why it has missed the playoffs in six of the past seven seasons. Unfortunately, Barkley is about all Giants' fans have to hang their hat on right now.
