Johnson comments on benching 00:01:00
Trumaine Johnson reacts to not starting against the Browns. It was a surprising move that Gase said wasn't due to discipline reasons.

Decimated by injuries, including linebacker C.J. Mosley (strained groin) and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (sprained left ankle), the Jets trotted out a revised defense against a Browns offense littered with dangerous skill players but did not play Trumaine Johnson until the cornerback was forced into action.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. gave Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams a piece of his mind on the field and taste of his own medicine off of it on Monday night.

Williams, when asked a question about Beckham this week, started his reply with, "Odell who?" 

Beckham downplayed a lot during his press conference following his team's 23-3 win against the Jets. One thing he couldn't help himself with was his thoughts on Williams.

Before the regular season began, Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines in late August when his wide-ranging interview with Sports Illustrated went viral.

The former Giants wide receiver told Ben Baskin of SI that New York sent him to the Browns "to die," setting off his latest disgruntled comments about his team from 2014-18.

Prior to Week 2's 8:15 p.m. kickoff against the New York Jets on ESPN, Beckham further explained those words in an interview aired during the Monday Night Football pregame show with Randy Moss.

Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff at MetLife Stadium between the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills just got a bit more interesting.

A day after Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that Bills quarterback Josh Allen "had a chance to be a starter," repeating the head coach's take on the Wyoming product as the Giants evaluated the position ahead of the 2018 NFL draft, the Bills took notice.

According to Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic, a tweet published by NFL Network's Kimberly Jones with Shurmur's comments about Allen appeared on televisions displayed inside the Bills' facility Thursday.

Amidst all of the Baker Mayfield - Daniel Jones drama, it looks like Saquon Barkley is here to help clear up Mayfield's comments from the GQ Magazine interview.

"Baker reached out to me," Barkley said. "Through a mutual friend he got Daniel's number and sent Daniel a text and basically, just in case he didn't have the right number, or switched his number, he had said, 'Can you make sure Daniel gets this?' That was really it." 

Barkley was selected by the Giants with the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, one pick after the Browns took Mayfield. So it makes sense for Mayfield to reach out to Barkley and get reassurance that Jones received his message.

Welcome to your new world, Daniel Jones. Get used to it.

Baker Mayfield may have been wildly out of line when he ripped the Giants for making Jones the sixth overall pick in the draft, but the truth is he's just the latest in a very long line of Daniel Jones critics. Giants fans seemed horrified by the pick. Many in the media crushed it.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley is setting the bar as high as possible.

In an interview with Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks, Barkley was informed that his rookie-year teammate Jonathan Stewart said Barkley can be the best running back of all-time. 

Asked if he was right, Barkley said, "Yes. I believe so. I believe that I can be the best running back to ever play the game."

Giants GM Dave Gettleman told the media that he heard "one very reasonable" offer for his No. 2 overall pick last Thursday, but the rest were nothing to truly consider. 

And then there was one that never came to be. 

Baker Mayfield's agent, Jack Mills, told Andrew Brandt's podcast that the Patriots would have tried to trade for the Giants pick at No. 2 to land the Oklahoma product. Obviously, this trade could have never come to fruition when the Browns took Mayfield with the first overall pick.
