It’s so hard, to say goodbye, to yesterday! The 3-time NFL Pro-Bowler, Odell Beckham Jr. officially said goodbye to New York and Giant fans. On Wednesday, the New York Giants announced the blockbuster trade of the superstar receiver to the Cleveland Browns after five seasons. In a post on Thursday, Beckham, Jr pens an emotional letter to fans as he heads to his new home in Cleveland, Ohio.
“So many mixed emotions and feelings. This is all, a lot to process but it is reality. I don’t kno exactly what to say so just gotta keep it real and short. I want to thank the NY Giants organization for giving me an opportunity to do what God put me on this earth to do, I want to thank the organization and the owners for everything and especially giving me my first chance to be a part of the NFL.”
He continues, making sure to thank everyone from kitchen staff to a random guy named, Jose.
“I want thank everyone in that building from the kitchen staff to my main man Jose! I loved you guys dearly and always will. I gave u my all every Sunday. To the fans, some happy, some not, I just wanna thank u guys for making my experience in NY SOMETHIN I’LL NEVER FORGET! To the New Yorkers and REAL NYG fans… you guys will always have a place in my heart, a beautiful city … a beautiful place. Thank You for every last moment and experience. Without them, I wouldn’t be exactly who I am today ! LUV”
As the star receiver joins his new football family, he shares his thoughts on starting on a new journey with Browns fans.
“I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to be part of this organization and the direction they are headed. I’ve already witnessed the energy fan bring to that city having been to some playoff games at The Q. Browns fans deserve a winning football team. This is a fresh start for me and it’s going to be a great to join Baker and Jarvis on this time.”
Beckham compiled 5,476 yards on 390 receptions with 44 receiving touchdowns in 59 games with the Giants. New York selected Beckham with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft out of LSU, and he instantly developed into one of the NFL’s top receivers.

In Cleveland, Odell joins quarterback Baker Mayfield who will lead the way on offense with running back Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in the backfield. Beckham will also join forces with former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry at wide receiver. With OBJ in their radar, the Browns are a quick favorite to reach the playoffs next season, which would mark their first postseason berth since 2002.
"What is wrong with you?"
