Odell Beckham Jr

Odell Beckham Jr has joined the Cleveland Browns in a surprise trade deal from the New York Giants.

The 26-year-old wide receiver has only ever played for the Giants, joining in 2014 and signing a five-year $95m (£72.5m) contract extension last year.

In return, the Giants get a first- and third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft and Browns safety Jabrill Peppers.

Beckham Jr, famous for his trademark one-handed catches, was rated the third best wide receiver in 2018 with 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns.

“I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to be a part of this organisation and the direction they are headed,” Beckham Jr said.

“Browns fans deserve a winning football team. This is a fresh start for me and it’s going to be great to join Baker [Mayfield, quarterback] and Jarvis [Landry, wide receiver] on this team.”
