Former Browns defensive back Jabrill Peppers was thrilled when he found out Cleveland had traded for Odell Beckham Jr. back in early 2019 – that is, until Peppers discovered he was part of the New York Giants’ deal.
It’s been nearly two years since the Browns and Giants made the blockbuster trade. The deal sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns in exchange for Peppers, a first-round and third-round draft pick to the Giants.
Peppers first found out about the deal on Twitter. At the time, all he knew was OBJ was coming to Cleveland (Peppers’ former team), and that was it. It was until a bit later Peppers discovered he was part of the deal, and that he’d be heading to New York to link up with the Giants. Let’s just say he was shocked by the news.
Almost two years later, the deal has panned out pretty well for both teams. Peppers is happy about how it turned out. The Giants safety had a hilarious admission about how he reacted to being traded for OBJ on Friday morning.
This is AWESOME: #Giants Jabrill Peppers said he first heard about #Browns trading for Odell Beckham on Twitter. His reaction was “Hell yeah, we just got Odell.” THen he was like, “Oh sh–” when he realized he was the trade return. He’s thrilled with how his homecoming worked out

Such is the life of a professional athlete. In the blink of an eye players are traded and have to head to a new city and team.
Jabrill Peppers has played well for a Giants team competing to win the NFC East. New York is tied with Washington atop the division. These last few games will prove critical to how the NFC East race plays out.
To stay on top the division, the Giants will have to beat the Browns this weekend. It’ll be a reunion of sorts for Peppers and OBJ as they face their former teams.
