Odell Beckham Jr. has been an out-right star ever since his one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys on National TV a few years ago. Before, and after, the Mayfield pick, general manager John Dorsey has been making clear the rebuild of the Browns was going to be faster, and more aggressive than might have been expected.
"Now he gets a chance to go back to what he naturally does: put his hand in the ground and be able to pressure the quarterback and apply some pressure", Dorsey said.
While some will argue that Manning should have been dethroned from his starting role years ago, the Giants are reportedly committing to the two-time Super Bowl MVP for the final year of his contract in 2019, which is expected to be his final year in NY.
Along with improving their offense, NY was also able to add former Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. From keeping Manning, to taking Barkley, to extending and then trading Beckham, the Giants appear to have no blueprint or reasoning for any of their moves. In what could be the most stunning trade of the off-season, the Browns are sending first-and third-round picks in the upcoming draft and safety Jabrill Peppers to the Giants for Beckham, one of the NFL's most top players.
Over seven seasons, Vernon has racked up 51 sacks, registering at least 6.5 per year since his second season in the NFL. "We truly wish him well in Cleveland, and we want to wish OV the best and nothing but success for both of them".
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield also took to Instagram to post about his new teammate. Manning is 38 and the team has only made the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012.
National Football League free agency is underway and the news of players moving to new teams is cranking out at it's normal insane rate.
