Giants QB Eli Manning says Odell Beckham Jr. is the most talented teammate he’s ever had
The New York Giants recently made a blockbuster trade by sending their once-prized wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. When asked who the most talented player he’s ever shared the field with, quarterback Eli Manning’s answer was simple:

Manning will have his work cut out for him from here on out as the Giants are now in a big-time rebuild after the deal was made. Unfortunately for Manning, his career is nearing an end and now his favorite target of recent years is now playing for another team.
Beckham Jr. is poised for a big season playing alongside his former LSU teammate and best friend Jarvis Landry as well as getting the opportunity to catch passes from Baker Mayfield. To think of what Mayfield’s face looked like when hearing the team traded for Beckham.
The Browns roster is already flooded with talent but adding a talent like Beckham is not an opportunity any team would pass on, especially at the price the Browns were able to get him for.
Beckham, 26, could be spending a long time with the Browns and his future is incredibly bright. Cleveland made a legitimate jump in the right direction and now possesses an offense many defenses are likely not thrilled to face going forward. Now with a young and promising quarterback, Beckham could have his best years yet which is scary considering he already has eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards in nearly every season since entering the league in 2014.
