As part of the package in the Beckham deal, the Giants added Jabrill Peppers, a 23-year-old safety from East Orange, NJ, who excelled at MI and, after a rough rookie year with the Browns, improved greatly last season.
It didn't take long for both Channing Frye and Jordan Clarkson to sound off in the comments, warning Beckham that he's going to have to trade in his shorts for fur when he lands in Cleveland. If nothing else, trading Beckham hurts the plan to get one more marginally effective season out if Manning.
Upset and sometimes embarrassed by his on-field emotional outbursts and off-field controversies, the Giants dragged out a decision on Beckham's future until just before the start of his fifth season, signing him to a five-year extension worth $90 million with $65 million guaranteed.
In return for Vernon, the Giants brought back Kevin Zeitler, who will move in as the starting right guard. Landon Collins has also headed to the division rival Washington Redskins in free agency, with Peppers now as the obvious replacement (and downgrade) at free safety.
Jabrill Peppers is off to NY to play for the Giants.
At least, they have Saquon Barkley, their face of the franchise, but needless to say, Giants fans are distraught over this move.
