Odell Beckham Jr. is now a member of the Cleveland Browns, but we're still talking about him. That will probably be the case for a while. Today, we're doing so because NFL insider Adam Schefter said in his podcast on Tuesday that the Giants had a better deal for the star-rated receiver than Jabrill Peppers and Cleveland's 17th and 95th picks in the upcoming draft.
"I know, I know, there were other teams that offered the Giants more than the Browns for Odell Beckham Jr. So if the Browns come up with this offer, what the Giants thought was good, why not – and I did Never made such a deal ̵1; but why do not you say hey, that's a great deal, give us 24 hours. We want to see what's available before we make that deal with you. What was the onslaught on the 12th of March? "
Schefter does not provide substantial evidence of what these better offers might have been, so we have no way to judge. The perception of an offer is subjective, and this seems above all to be an opinion of Schefter.
The only thing we know as fact, because GM Dave Gettleman has so much admitted, is that the giants "had numerous conversations with the San Francisco 49ers about Beckham, but the sides" could not agree ".
In his column "Football Morning in America" this week, Peter King preemptively threw cold water at Scheffer's claim that giants could have made better returns on Beckham. He wrote:
Because Beckham's stock had been tarnished, it's doubtful that he could have fetched better than 17-95 peppers from the 49s for picks and / or a player in the next two drafts. The Niners have been snooping in Beckham for months. But they just do not go well together. The Giants need high picks and / or productive players. The Niners did not want to make a big selection this year or in the next few years, and DeForest Buckner was supposed to fight a defensive attack by the stars … and the Giants might not have come up with next year's first-rounder and this year's Second Rounder (36th) want to settle for a total) plus a lesser player than Buckner (eg security Jaquiski Tartt). The giants need help now. So Gettleman picked up the bird. He made the stitch.
Sounds like King says the 49ers did not want to hit Gettleman's first two rounds of litmus test.
Here's what Gettleman said on Monday about what the giants are getting for Beckham:
"To move Odell, the other team had to throw it out of the park. As I said, we did not actively buy it. Calls came to us, "he said. "For us, we get Jabrill Peppers, whom we believe are a very good security in this league. He is young, we contracted him for three years at a reasonable price. To get another (first round) this year's number 17, I think, and to get such a value in this kind of design, and to get a third round that fills our dance card for April. it was just too much, not to forget. This was too valuable for us.
