Giants Co-Owner Was \'Reluctant\' To Trade Odell Beckham 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Mar 25, 2019 12:31 pm

New York Giants ownership considers the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns among the toughest moves they have ever made.

John Mara even insisted that he gave a \"reluctant approval\" after thinking about it.

The Giants traded Beckham for a first-round pick, third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. The deal came seven months after Beckham received a five-year deal worth up to $98.5 million.

\"I will tell you it was a reluctant approval on my part because I happen to like Odell [Beckham Jr.] very much, and I recognize the unique talent that he has,\" Mara said. \"It\'s not easy to trade that player to another team.\"
