Odell Beckham Jr. trade has Giants fans questioning their very existence

The 26-year-old receiver was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014 and he has made three Pro Bowls. The Giants are in rebuilding mode.

In what may go down as the biggest surprise of the 2019 offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles along with fans were shocked to hear Tuesday's announcement that Odell Beckham Jr. has been traded to the Cleveland Browns. That leaves the Browns searching for his replacement at strong safety. However, he has been an insanely productive player in his career.

Beckham has missed 16 games over the last two seasons, but he was still very productive in 12 games last season (77 catches for 1,052 yards, six touchdowns).

The Giants are GOING FOR IT ALL, clearly.

This, she said, illustrates the difference between Beckham in private versus the public perception of him.

The storm will sweep right through the Rockies, the Upper Midwest, the central and northern Plains and more of the USA heartland. The National Weather Service warned the storm would create a myriad of weather hazards across the US through Thursday.

Lastly, the team is still undecided about the quarterback position.

Media members tried to sort out what this means for the Giants franchise and quarterback Eli Manning. Landry filled the role past year, and while he did a very good job of it, Cleveland hasn't seen this kind of one-two punch at the position since it was cheering on Webster Slaughter and Reggie Langhorne (and Brian Brennan). Manning isn't almost what he once was, and keeping him only make the team's direction that much more confusing.

And for a coach heading into the final year of his contract, like Garrett, needing to put together back to back playoff appearances for the first time since 2007, rebuilding is exactly what you want to see from a team in your division.

None of these moves, outside of maybe the Vernon-Zeitler trade, makes any type of sense to me.
