In a stunning move, the Giants traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns who are a completely different team than a year ago.

The Joke’s Over: Odell Beckham Jr. is Coming to Cleveland

In Football by Ashlee Gecewich

The Cleveland Browns have made the news once again, but this time it has nothing to do with the number of starting quarterbacks they’ve had since 1999 or the fact they held a parade for going 0-16 in a single season. Nope, this time it’s for acquiring one of, if not the most, talked about wide receiver in the game currently. It has been announced that all the Twitter teasers and rumors have been confirmed, Odell Beckham Jr. is heading to the LAND!

Cleveland has given up a first and third round pick in the 2019 draft, as well as safety Jabrill Peppers all for #13. The trade is pending on both players passing their physicals.

The Browns have not seen the playoffs since the 2002 season and have not won a NFL Championship since 1964, three years before the Super Bowl era began in January 1967.

This trade gives hope, real hope, to Cleveland Faithful. Cleveland fans are some of the most resilient fans in all of sports. Year after year, they support their Browns, their Cavs and their Indians.

The Cavs won their Championship in the summer of 2016 and the town exploded with excitement. The Indians made it to the World Series in the fall of 2016 and they gained followers all over the country.

However, the city of Cleveland is a Browns town. The thought of Cleveland making it to the Super Bowl gives their fans chills. The city’s celebration would be nuclear!

My 8 year old son is stoked, he didn’t want to go to sleep. He instantly told his dad that he needs Madden ’20 because the Browns offense in the video game will be unstoppable! Things are exciting in Cleveland right now and while I have an 8 year old who cannot wait to see OBJ in a Brown and Orange #13, I have a 35 year old husband who is even more excited!

Congratulations Cleveland, the joke is over. You are no longer the laughing stock of the NFL.
