"We truly wish him well in Cleveland, and we want to wish OV the best and nothing but success for both of them".
Jabrill Peppers, who starred at MI before he was drafted by the Browns with the 25th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, was sent to NY in return, along with the No. 17 overall pick in April's draft and the third-round pick the Giants got from the Patriots.
The Giants will get a second chance to draft a quarterback this year, with the No. 6 overall pick.
Manning set a career-high for completion percentage (66 percent) previous year, but the eye test has shown a cooked quarterback for about three seasons.
Upset and sometimes embarrassed by his on-field emotional outbursts and off-field controversies, the Giants dragged out a decision on Beckham's future until just before the start of his fifth season, signing him to a five-year extension worth $90 million with $65 million guaranteed. And it was obvious that Dorsey felt the same after trading for Olivier Vernon and agreeing to terms with free agent defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.
Jabrill Peppers is off to NY to play for the Giants.
It's been a long drought for Browns fans, but this franchise in its current incarnation has proven that it not only has the wherewithal to develop talent through the draft, but also that it's not afraid to go in hard on the big move when necessary. Unfortunately, Barkley is about all Giants' fans have to hang their hat on right now.
