(CNN)An NFL superstar is on the move, and it's to a destination that would have been considered inconceivable a couple of years ago.
New York Giants trade WR Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns
The New York Giants have traded wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., as well as linebacker Olivier Vernon, to the Cleveland Browns. In return, the Giants get safety Jabrill Peppers, right guard Kevin Zeitler, the No. 17 pick of this year's NFL draft and a 2019 third-round pick.
The trade became official when the league year began at 4 pm Eastern time on Wednesday.
"He's probably if not the one, one or two best receivers in the National Football League," Browns general manager John Dorsey said of Beckham. "Very rarely do you get a chance to acquire a player of this magnitude. He's at a relatively young age. He's got a lot of football left in him. Great hands, great work ethic, committed, competitive, he really wants to be great. And that's all you can ask for."
Beckham, 26, is arguably the NFL's most electric player -- on and off the field. Last year, the Giants gave him a reported $95 million contract extension in August.
