While the free agency spending frenzy runs wild, the Giants and Browns found a way to overshadow it Tuesday night: a trade of Odell Beckham Jr.

New York is sending its star receiver to Cleveland for first- and third-round draft picks in April and safety Jabrill Peppers in the second blockbuster trade in four days.

The news sent Giants fans into meltdown mode on social media.

On Saturday, Pittsburgh sent unhappy wideout Antonio Brown to Oakland, a deal Brown forced.

Beckham is the NFL's highest-paid receiver; he got a five-year, $90 million extension last August. 

He comes off two injury-plagued seasons, but when healthy is a game-breaking target, just like Brown.

The two trades become official Wednesday when the league's business year begins.

People with knowledge of the moves told The Associated Press of the trades, speaking anonymously because the transactions can't be announced until after 4pm EDT on Wednesday.

Beckham is known for his gravity-defying catches and breakaway skills, but also for being temperamental. 

He was suspended for one game in 2015 for his on-field battles with cornerback Josh Norman, then with Carolina.

Beckham is a standout wide receiver who has made spectacular plays during his career - perhaps most notably the one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on November 23, 2014

Cleveland suddenly looks like a force in an AFC North in which both Baltimore and Pittsburgh have been weakened in the offseason. 

With Beckham reunited with receiver Jarvis Landry, a teammate at LSU, it gives quarterback Baker Mayfield two top targets. 

The Browns, who went 7-8-1 last season after not winning a game in 2017, haven't made the playoffs since 2002.

Giants fans were not happy about the move and it spurred a barrage of memes on Twitter. 

One Giants fan wearing Beckham's No. 13 filmed himself drinking alcohol to dull the pain of losing Beckham.

'There is no f****** plan, it's a mess, it's a joke,' tweeted one disgruntled Giants fan. 

Browns fans, however, were elated.

One Twitter user joked that LeBron James, the basketball star who left the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, will be running back to his old home town after the Browns acquired Beckham.

Steve Harvey, the television host who lived in Cleveland as a young boy, tweeted: 'Cleveland starting to look a lot like Christmas!' 

The mega-trade came hours after another busy day of dealmaking.

The money flowed out of New Jersey, with the Jets agreeing Tuesday to contracts with three players: wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy, and linebacker C.J. Mosley.

The team also will re-sign cornerback Darryl Roberts.

It streamed out of Green Bay, with the Packers getting deals with edge rusher Za'Darius Smith, linebacker Preston Smith, safety Adrian Amos and offensive lineman Billy Turner. 

The Packers also cut veteran linebacker Nick Perry.

And it poured out of Oakland once more when the Raiders kept their vault open and agreed to a four-year contract with safety Lamarcus Joyner. 

The Raiders previously made big moves on offense by trading for Brown and agreeing to a deal with tackle Trent Brown.

Given the 'legal tampering' freedom the league now allows for two days, well, let Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta describe the mayhem.

'Unfortunately for us, the market is irrational at times and we can't be held responsible for what other teams want to pay,' DeCosta said. 

'All we can do is try to negotiate in good faith with agents and the players.'

Odell Beckham Jr dances in locker room after inking 95Million NFL contract

NFL Star Odell Beckham Jr CUTS HIS HAIR (First Pics)

NFL star Odell Beckham Jr is known as much for his hairstyle, as his play on the field. Well now he's got a new look.

The NFL star unveiled his new hairstyle last night - and he cut off MOST of his hair. Odell's new hairstyle is a lot more muted.

Odell still has Golden tips on his hair, but he has a much more conventional look.

So why did the star cut his hair? According to reports, Odell's hair was damaged from all the coloring he was doing. So he cut off the tips - and now his hair is much healthier.

We like the new look.

Odell1


On January 29, 2015, during a live ESPN broadcast from Glendale, Arizona, home of Super Bowl XLIX, Beckham, partnering with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, attempted to establish a new world record for the most one-handed catches made in a minute. He shattered the previous record of 10 as he caught 33 passes. However, this achievement was short lived as CFL wide receiver Andy Fantuz recorded 50 one-handed catches in a minute to set the new world record

Odell Beckham Jr.’s Bud Address Gay Talk with Dancing Video {WATCH} Odell Beckham Jr. Suspended After Losing Cool Against Josh Norman

Odell Beckham Jr. likes million-dollar deals and on Monday he celebrated signing a five-year $95 million NFL contract, sealing the title as the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history.

The New York Giants star player secured the bag, big time. And with the O’Jays’ ‘For the Love of Money’ playing in the background, the Daily Mail reports that Beckham danced around his locker room, celebrating the new deal, while stripping off his shirt and yelling the song’s catchy hook: “money, money, money, money!”

According to reports, the five-year extension is worth up to $95 million, with $90 million in base value and an additional $5 million available through incentives.

Based on last season’s stats he could be worth the hefty payday. Beckham made 288 catches for 4,122 yards and 35 scores through his first three seasons, all Pro Bowl campaigns, according to reports. He made 25 grabs for 302 yards. Also scored three touchdowns in four games last season before a broken ankle injury sidelined him.

Beckham released a statement about the historic new contract.

“Honestly, I don’t even know how to explain it,” Beckham said in the team’s release. “I don’t know if it’s a relief, I don’t know – it’s a combination of everything. You’ve worked all your life to get to this point and it’s finally here. I have to thank Mr. Mara, Steve Tisch, Mr. Gettleman, coach (Pat) Shurmur, Eli (Manning), all the guys I played with in the past years. Everybody was really a part of this—my mom, my dad, my family, everybody who was supporting me through this. It’s just such an amazing feeling, I can’t even explain. Most importantly, I have to thank God for being able to put me back together mentally, physically, spiritually. This is just truly amazing; I don’t even know the right words to describe. It was just a time of patience and waiting and I knew that it would get done, it just was a matter of when and I’m just so happy that it is finally done now.”

But with more money, let’s hope there won’t be more problems.

Beckham’s become quite popular with his blonde hair and steel-like physique. The ladies love him. And just last month, he was caught up in another scandal after former friend claims he paid a woman $1,000 for sex, according to new court documents revealed by TMZ Sports.

A former friend, Ishmael Temple, who is suing him for an alleged beatdown, and made new claims saying there’s proof the New York Giants wide receiver tried to pay for prostitution.

Temple’s attorney Emmanuel Nsahlai reportedly sent an email to Beckham’s legal team saying they “have evidence of your client offering $1k to sleep with a girl from Arizona visiting L.A. known to my client.”

This latest sordid story breaks just a few months after Beckham was in the headlines for another scandal.

While the charismatic football star was on a Nike-sponsored trip to Europe last march, Beckham appeared in a video with aspiring French model, Laura Cuenca. In the clip it appears that she’s holding a credit card while cutting up a suspicious white substance. Beckham is sitting close by on a bed with a cigar of some sort in hand, while in front of a pizza box.

Cuenca took to Instagram to flatly deny the allegations writing:

“No. He did not take any drugs!” an adamant Cuenca reportedly wrote in her native French during a private exchange on Instagram to New York Daily News.

Stay focused, Beckham!

'The greatest catch of all time': Step aside Kim, Odell Beckham Jr broke the internet, NY Giants wide receiver's gravity-defying catch catches fire online with hilarious memes {VIDEO}

kavahra holmes & odell beckham jr

Best buds: Kavahra Holmes and Odell Beckham Jr.

*New York Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. knows he has an image problem.

Yes, there’s the perception that he’s a dirty player because of what he did on the field against Carolina Panthers player Josh Norman that earned him a one game suspension and fine from the NFL.

But the other elephant in the room  would be the accusations and whispers by players around the league questioning his sexuality.

Some think a lot of the talk is because of jealousy and some because of Beckham’s love of dancing. If that sounds stupid, we agree with you, but it is what it is.

The bottom line is he likes to dance and be himself. So we have to ask … when did dancing come to being equated with being gay? Dude looks like he’s just having fun to us.

Meanwhile, Odell’s ex LSU teammate and bestie, Kavahra Holmes, posted a video on Instagram basically showing the world that Odell could give a crap about petty whispers.

He captioned it:

“Lolll it’s crazy how we been brothers for so long and if anybody really knows us know anywhere we go they see us being clowns and dancing but of course it’s made as “we gay”
Lol ain’t no shade no where in the mix.. Strictly brotherhood and just cuz we dancing having fun don’t make us gay.. I dance with our without him and vice versa so the “gay” comments really funny .. We laughing … But we gone keep dancing lol.. Str8 up.. #SQUADDDDDDDDDDDDD”

it dont matter how much money the white owners give you, but they will never allow you to own a team, if you cant own your own businesses and create jobs in your community, the struggle remains, you want to know who is in charge look in the sky box the old white owners with their wealthy friends yelling out run negro run, how many came before you, hope that money is being invested well, enjoy life and the success, i am not impress i see the bigger picture, after all many stand for just the dollar but they cannot achieve anything like the white men do, thats why white people remain in charge they give it to you because you will give it right back not to mention their white daughter who is ready to take half or more from you, oh boy

I'm a Steelers fan and I never seen a three finger catch in my lifetime of watching football. I've seen him catch one handed catches at LSU, but this was just crazy....best catch I've seen so far.
