As part of the package in the Beckham deal, the Giants added Jabrill Peppers, a 23-year-old safety from East Orange, NJ, who excelled at MI and, after a rough rookie year with the Browns, improved greatly last season.
By Wednesday morning, after a flurry of interest from reports surfacing of a trade for New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Cleveland had attracted more bets and more money to win the Super Bowl than any other team. General manager David Gettleman said he didn't extend Beckham just to trade him, but there were indications head coach Pat Shurmur did not appreciate some of Beckham's antics. Beckham finished the game with 12 targets for five receptions, 38 yards and zero touchdowns.
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.

After the successful day, By changed his own Twitter profile to "Billy's Donuts". "This means so much to my family", he tweeted. On Sunday, Billy wrote on Twitter that the shop had completely sold out of donuts and kolaches.
Meanwhile, the return for Beckham was more substantial.
Few fanbases around the league were happier than Cowboys Nation to hear about the blockbuster trade between the Giants and Browns on Tuesday night. However, in the end, he landed in Cleveland. And they will not have a first round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft to address those needs. After starting 13 games as a rookie, Peppers has started all 29 games in which he played.
By unloading Beckham, the Giants have committed to Saquon Barkley as the face of the franchise.
