Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz USA TODAY Published 9:53 PM EDT Apr 25, 2019 Eli Manning finally has an apparent successor. The New York Giants drafted Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the first round of Thursday's NFL draft, positioning him as the eventual replacement for their 38-year-old passer. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has remained steadfast in his commitment to Manning amid calls for the team to move on to a younger option. In 2018, he passed up the likes of Sam Darnold (taken No. 3 overall by the New York Jets), Josh Allen (No. 7, Buffalo Bills) and Josh Rosen (No. 10, Arizona Cardinals) to select running back Saquon Barkley, who was named the NFL's offensive rookie of the year after leading the league with 2,028 yards from scrimmage. "We went into last year thinking that Eli had plenty left, and he proved it," Gettleman said in a news conference last week.

Art Stapleton NFL writer Published 10:57 AM EDT Mar 13, 2019 The hardest sell for the New York Giants right now will be convincing their fans – really anyone, for that matter – that they are playing to win in 2019 after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. It's OK for Big Blue to admit they are rebuilding. The question of the moment: Will they? Because that's where we're at in assessing how the Giants move forward without one of the most dynamic players in the NFL following Tuesday night's stunning deal with the Browns in which they got in return a first-round pick, a third-round pick and hometown favorite Jabrill Peppers. They also received the fourth-round pick back from the Browns that they flipped for a fifth-rounder last week in the Olivier Vernon-for-Kevin Zeitler swap. From the outside, the Giants appear to be a team without direction. Ownership and general manager Dave Gettleman are taking heat – and in some ways, deservedly so … [Read more...] about Odell Beckham Jr. trade: Will Giants admit they’re now rebuilding?
Mike Jones and Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz USA TODAY Published 8:35 PM EDT Mar 12, 2019 For the second time in a week, one of the NFL's premier wide receivers is on the move. The Cleveland Browns will acquire Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants in a trade, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot become official until the start of the new league year at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo was the first to report the agreement. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Giants would receive the No. 17 overall pick from the Browns in this year's draft as well as the team's second third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers. The move brings an end to Beckham's tumultuous run in New York just months after he signed a five-year, $90 million extension last August. Despite the deal, Beckham publicly criticized quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants' offensive scheme, … [Read more...] about Odell Beckham trade: Browns land WR from Giants in swap
