What’s the best fit for OBJ, if/when he’s traded?

With the Giants reportedly applying a price tag to a potential Odell Beckham trade and with Beckham reportedly interested in being traded (to the Rams, maybe elsewhere), momentum continues to build toward a deal being done.

So if a deal is done, which team would be the best team to make that deal?

Chris Simms and yours truly discussed the subject during Thursday’s PFT Live, with a three-round draft aimed at finding the right fit. The results show that I made the right choices, and that Simms, while making an admirable effort, was way, way off.

Check out the video, and drop your own thoughts in the comments.

  1. A team that wants to go backwards.

    He has an insane amount of talent. But that talent doesn’t outweigh the negatives he brings to an organization.

    And we haven’t even touched upon the fact that he has said many, many times that Odell wants to be paid the highest WR in a salary cap league.

    Buyer beware.

  2. As a 9ERS fan I say trade him to the Rams.

    Not only will all the personalities in that locker room start to implode that team from within but they’d be mortgaging there future away.

  3. The Giants are stuck with him unless they just unload him for a 5th round pick.

    His contract would need to be performance based with very little up front. He would need to go to a team with an established coach and GM that would have no problem sitting him and shipping him out of town.

    Someone instead will give up low draft picks, pay him 15mill+ per year with 30mill upfront and doom their franchise for 5 years.

  4. No one will touch him for anywhere near what the Giants want for him. In a short period of time he has proven to be a malcontent, not dedicated (boat situation), immature (sideline tantrums), and recent drug video. He is a suspension sure to happen. Not to mention contract is up in a year.

    if he loves to get yelled at by the QB and get the stink eye Packers on line 1 thru 10!

    —————————————————————————————–

    Obviously a know-nothing ^^^.

    Packers would NEVER trade two firsts, even for Jesus himself.

    Only the Vikings do that — for much less.

  6. The most obvious fit is New England because OBJ would probably appreciate the upgrade in QB and in coaching. To play for the greatest coach and with the greatest QB would be a privilege and OBJ knows it. However, Bill is generally reticent to throw ridiculous money around. Probably won’t happen but Belichick is the one coach who could straighten him out and develop a better rounded team player.

  7. “Best fit” for OBJ would be with a “young gun” QB/team, e.g., Carr/Oakland-Vegas, Goff/Rams, Wentz/Philly where he would have a potential 7-10 year window to get his act together in time to earn a bus ticket to Canton.

  8. In OBJ’s only game at Green Bay — his lone playoff game to date — he crapped the bed with several drops.

  9. It’s not about where the best fit is, it’s about who gives the best picks.

    Cleveland has the best picks, and they have Cap Room to sign him Long term.

    If I am the GIANTS, I trade him. Get more picks, continue to re-build.

    A WR is NOT worth $17 – $18 million per season. Put that Money at OL and at Corner.

  10. It’s amazing when a player is considered the “best fit” by process of elimination.

    Conversely EVERY other great player is a “great fit” on any team.

  11. Don’t a guy who goes to Florida for vacation before a playoff game on my team, unless my team never goes to the playoffs. That means Cleveland would be a good fit. The 2018 Seattle team would be a good fit too. LOL

  12. You hear a rumor about a trade, then start salivating until you are satiated with the manifestation of said rumor. Cut it out. Let these things play out.

  13. Would it be crazy to think Carolina might be a good fit for a franchise on sale? Locked up w a deal for the next 4/5 seasons w Cam at QB…I’d think a franchise like that could easily get top dollar since it is for sale. All you’d be doing is trading away potential outcomes for a sure one by letting go of future picks. Hmmm

  14. Sad to say, I would take him in Green Bay. The talent level on offense is dwindling.

    But I expect it would be an unmitigated disaster if it happened.

    “Packers would NEVER trade two firsts, even for Jesus himself”.

    The packers would however trade two firsts, two seconds and a third for John Hadl. Thanks for playing though.

    57 likes, cant believe there are 57 packer fans that don’t know about the Hadl trade. Just goes to show you the packers have the most bandwagon fans.

  17. As a Packer fan I’d love to see him in Green and Gold, but honestly, Green Bay as a culture isn’t right for Beckham. He belongs in someplace more like LA or Miami or Seattle.

    Are the Patriots going after Beckham by getting rid of Cooks? Use that pick and #31 for OBJ?
    ———-

    You are out of your mind if a) you think Beckham is even going anywhere and b) just to entertain the ridiculous hypothetical, that two end-round 1sts are enough.

  19. Belichick does not value receivers like that, and Odell ain’t going there to be paid like Edelman, so cancel this foolishness before you even begin having rosy dreams about it.

    KEEP him with the Giants. I like the distractions he brings the team. -a Eagles fan

    You have one fluke season and begin chirping like your team has won four or five Super Bowls. Quaint.

    Like he doesn’t smoke the Eagles every time they play.
