For the price of a mid-first-round pick, a third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers, the Cleveland Browns acquired one of the best receivers of a generation on Tuesday.

The Browns landed Odell Beckham Jr. in a shocking trade with the New York Giants, one that figures to significantly alter the landscape of not just the AFC North, but the entire NFL. Quarterback Baker Mayfield now has arguably both the most talented and deepest collection of weapons in the NFL and there’s no telling how far such an offense can take the team.

Naturally, the football world had no shortage of reactions to the trade.

Plenty of people needed a minute to process the news.

Then there was the litany of people preparing themselves for what figures to be the best Browns team in years, possibly decades.

Current members of the Browns, and Joe Thomas, were especially happy to hear the news.

Of course, as a possible juggernaut rose in Cleveland, the New York Giants and general manager Dave Gettleman were widely criticized for parting with one of the most talented players in the NFL.

And all of that is just our first taste of an NFL where the Cleveland Browns are a legitimate threat. We’ll see what happens if they actually start to make some noise during the season.
