"Thank You for every last moment and experience."
Odell Beckham Jr. took to instagram on Thursday morning to say thanks to the entire New York Giants organization from top to bottom, including the ownership and fans, after being traded to the Cleveland Browns earlier this week.
OBJ's post reads:
"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.

The Giants selected Beckham 12th overall out of LSU in the 2014 NFL Draft, and he racked up over 1,300+ receiving yards with 10 or more touchdowns in each of his first three seasons.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Beckham is hoping the Browns restructure his contract, as his guaranteed money is reportedly limited to $16.7 million in the 2019 NFL season alone. CBS Sports' Jason La Confora reports that the Browns have already been in contact with his representatives regarding his wishes for a restructured contract.
In 12 games last season, OBJ caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. The Browns acquired the 26-year old star in exchange for their 2019 first round pick (17th overall), a third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers.
