Peter King breaks down the genesis of the Odell Beckham Jr

Giants GM defends Beckham Jr trade and says Browns 'knocked it out the park'

In late February, Gettleman declared that the Giants didn't sign their top wideout to a five-year, $90-million extension last year to trade him. Beckham didn't commit a singular egregious act that caused him to get traded.

"Because of Odell's talent and personality, this was a decision we did not enter into lightly", said Gettleman, who has run the Giants since Jerry Reese was sacked in December 2017.

Here is what the Patriots current have at wide receiver: Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Bruce Ellington, Matthew Slater, Braxton Berrios and Damoun Patterson. Gettleman referred to the deal as an acquisition of two first-rounders, considering Peppers was the 25th overall selection in 2017. Gettleman forcefully defended his move, invoking "The Godfather" by stating that the Browns "made an offer we couldn't refuse" and declaring "this was purely a football decision".

The Cleveland Browns landed Beckham in exchange for a first- and third-round pick in this year's draft and safety Jabrill Peppers. "We were not actively shopping him".

Gettleman called Beckham a tremendous talent, but said the Giants got three assets in return, at the very least.

"Talks were initiated by the Browns". He said the San Francisco 49ers called and the teams had numerous conversations without reaching a deal. "At the end of the day, you have to say, "Gettleman is out of his mind" or 'he knows what he is talking about when he evaluates players.' That's really where it's at". We've got positions to address. "We're building. I don't understand why that is a question". "Our plan is to address those positions, plain and simple", he said.

"You gotta trust me".

The recent personnel moves have put the Giants under a microscope, especially because the team has made the playoffs once (2016) since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012.
