The NFL world is upside down.

After one day in free agency that was highlighted by huge salaries for linebackers, day two featured moves by the Arizona Cardinals and then a trade that could alter the NFL landscape.

The Cleveland Browns, yes those Browns, have come to an agreement for a trade for New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The compensation was slight for the Browns, as they get maybe the best wide receiver in the NFL for their 17th pick, a late third and Jabrill Peppers, who would likely not fit in Steve Wilks defense.

The Browns get to pair Beckham Jr with their franchise quarterback in Baker Mayfield, giving their young signal caller the wide receiver one the team lacked.

Now the Browns look loaded on offense and have improved on defense as well.

The AFC North is on the downtrend, and that could make the Browns the division favorites.

No matter what, they have found a way to build on their success from 2018 and look headed in the right direction.
