The Browns traded Peppers to the Giants along with a 2019 first-round pick and a 2019 third-round pick in exchange for Odell Beckham on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It was a blockbuster trade since Beckham is one of the top wide receivers in the league, but Peppers fills a much-needed vacancy at safety for the Giants after Landon Collins agreed to a deal with the Redskins. Derrick Kindred is the favorite to fill into the starting role vacated by Peppers on the Browns defense. Peppers had a solid sophomore season in 2018, compiling 79 tackles, a sack, five pass breakups and an interception. He has two years remaining on his rookie contract.
