Beckham considered Dallas among his preferred destinations.
Cleveland entered the offseason with a desire for a field-stretching receiver to line up opposite Landry, which would give the Browns a threat at every level of the field. "We've already had him in here, and he passed his physical".
In return for Vernon, the Giants brought back Kevin Zeitler, who will move in as the starting right guard. "The way this game is being played, your safeties are critical in pass defense". General manager David Gettleman said he didn't extend Beckham just to trade him, but there were indications head coach Pat Shurmur did not appreciate some of Beckham's antics. The Browns are all-in on their window to win now and the front office is going to do whatever they can to add talent.
Much as the Steelers did in sending Antonio Brown to the Raiders, the Giants are absorbing significant dead money by trading Beckham.

That prompted co-host Joy Behar , who also disapproves of Trump, to say: "We're not here to be better people". The First Lady's spokesperson denied that she uses a body double in 2017.
The Giants now own two of the first 17 picks in next month's draft, which positions them to move up if they want to.
The Browns have options in free agency and don't have a pick until the second round of the draft.
The imagined look on Eli Manning's face at a Prescott-to-Beckham touchdown to beat NY aside, it's safe to say a sizable contingent of Cowboys fans would have flat-out revolted (at least at first) if the mercurial wideout had been brought to Dallas.
