It’s not everyday that a superstar wide receiver becomes available but the New York Giants were okay with trading Odell Beckham Jr. if the price was right. That’s where John Dorsey and the Cleveland Browns came into the picture. Dorsey traded a 1st round pick, 3rd round pick, and Jabrill Peppers for Beckham Jr. and put the rest of the league on notice. This is almost feels like what the Los Angeles Rams were able to do last off-season and we all know how far they ended up going (Super Bowl).
While it’s hard to tell if Cleveland will be able to make it through the AFC side of the playoff bracket especially with New England over there. You have to believe the Browns will win the AFC North. Beckham Jr. brings instant offense to this group and Baker Mayfield is such a gifted thrower of the football. Between Jarvis Landry and Beckham Jr. there’s enough firepower there to really do some damage. There’s mismatches all over the field and Mayfield has enough moxie to make it all work. It should also be mentioned that Landry and Beckham Jr. are former college teammates and are actually friends outside of football. Hopefully that will help Beckham Jr. get past some of the struggles he had in New York. Winning takes care of everything and right now the Giants and Browns are worlds apart. Lets face it some of Cleveland’s opponents are going to get exposed trying to keep up with this high flying passing attack. It’s been a long time coming for the people in Northern Ohio but it’s definitely been worth the wait because things are better than they’ve been in the last 25 years. Therefore it’s truly an exciting era for this franchise and give Dorsey all the credit in the world. He took over the GM position and immediately brought a swagger to this ball club and they never looked back.
