Safety Jabrill (juh-BRILL) Peppers was originally selected by the Cleveland Browns in the first round (25th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Last night, the National Football League world was in a state of shock as the news broke that star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, had been traded from the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns. Beckham finished the game with 12 targets for five receptions, 38 yards and zero touchdowns.
Here are some of them regarding both Beckham and Peppers.
Unless they make a move with one of their high draft picks, this will be the first time since 1984 the Giants have two first-round picks in the same draft. If nothing else, trading Beckham hurts the plan to get one more marginally effective season out if Manning.
The Browns found that and much more in Beckham, a home-run hitting target with a penchant for screen-melting highlights.
The imagined look on Eli Manning's face at a Prescott-to-Beckham touchdown to beat NY aside, it's safe to say a sizable contingent of Cowboys fans would have flat-out revolted (at least at first) if the mercurial wideout had been brought to Dallas. Cleveland had already signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and traded guard Kevin Zeitler to the Giants for the services of defensive end Olivier Vernon, so the defense is stout.
But not even The Killers could put on a Mr. Brightside face after this trade.
