Odell Beckham's list of preferred trade destinations included Broncos

The New York Giants' decision to trade star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Tuesday lends credence to the idea that we shouldn't pay attention to lip service team executives offer the public.

They are words most fans thought they'd never hear... but the Giants sent Beckham to the Cleveland Browns for their 2019 first-round, second third-round picks and safety Jabril Peppers.

But expectations changed a year ago, when Baker Mayfield was selected first overall in the 2018 National Football League draft.

Beckham will also be teaming up with former LSU teammate and Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Some of the talking heads on ESPN are suggesting the Giants might package the 6th and 17th first round picks to move up a few slots and take a QB to replace Eli Manning.

It's a stunner of a deal and, frankly, an incredible steal for the Browns. Football fans in MI noticed, too, but not only because of Beckham going to Cleveland.

Trump plans to scrap preferential trade status for India
The total India-US trade was $126.2 billion in 2017, with a $27.3 billion deficit for the US, according to the USTR. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer announced that India and Turkey would lose their GSP status within 60 days.

The Cleveland Browns got a massive bump in the latest Super Bowl odds. I was not expecting (Beckham to come, too).

When Martin isn't furiously trying to finish the "Game of Thrones" series, he's cheering for both NY football teams.

It was clear over the last few seasons that Beckham Jr. had grown exhausted of the Giants and their losing ways. The Giants were not going to win next season anyway.

He played five seasons in NY, making the Pro Bowl in his first three. If the Giants were blown away with an offer, the move might have made more sense. I've felt that from the Carolina game where they didn't discipline him, they've ruined everything.

With the trade of Beckham, the offense has lost its top playmaker, although one could argue the Giants started shifting that role to halfback Saquon Barkley last season.
