On Sunday, the Browns struck a deal with the Bills to trade WR Corey Coleman. With that, the Browns now have a spot open on their roster.
So, what does this matter for the Giants? Well, Browns WR Jarvis Landry still has hopes of playing with his former college teammate Odell Beckham Jr.
Landry lobbyed for the Browns to trade for the Pro-Bowl wideout in the past, and the same can be said now with a roster spot open in Cleveland. Also, Beckham has yet to sign a contact extension with the Giants, and the start of talks between his agent and the front office haven't been productive so far.
So, Landry says if both teams can make it happen, why not make a deal.
'If things like that are able to happen and the team can make it happen, then why not?" Landry told Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. "He definitely would be (up for it). He would be."
Landry and Beckham have obviously had conversations about playing together, and even Beckham lobbyed the Giants to sign the former free-agent this offseason before he landed in Cleveland.
"We've had talks," Landry said, "but at the end of the day, I want him to be happy. I want him to get what he deserves and you can't put nothing on that regardless of where it's at."
But Landry may be over his head -- at least, for now. The Giants may be at a standstill at the opening of contract talks, but the want to sign Beckham to an extension is there. Co-owner John Mara has made it public that he wants the star receiver to be a Giant for life, but with this specific extension, he wants Beckham's camp to be "reasonable."
A trade at this point in the season, especially after the dedication Beckham showed to the Giants over the offseason by showing up to voluntary workouts and not holding out at camp, wouldn't make any sense.
Landry and Beckham will likely continue to dream of being in the same uniform one day. But it is highly unlikely that will happen in Cleveland this season.
