This means that Odell Beckham Jr. will not get a chance for revenge against the Giants as the Browns do not play his former team. Beckham will play his former neighbors, the New York Jets. The only chance Beckham has of playing the Giants this season is if the two teams square off in the preseason.
The new-look Browns are expected to draw a crowd when they hit the road.
“The Browns are now a top 10 road draw and arguably in the top 5…Odell and Baker are the two most popular players to fans in their teens,” Eventellect founder Patrick Ryan told Darren Rovell.
The Browns have officially transformed from the laughing stock of the NFL to must-see TV in just a few seasons.
“Cleveland ticket broker Mark Klang Of @amazingtickets: “Baker and expectations would have had the highest prices in 20 years without Odell. With him, I expect the market to move another 20% on average for the 8 games,” Rovell tweeted.
The NFL has not announced the dates, times or national television schedule for 2019. Last year, the league announced the full schedule on April 20th, and we can expect the NFL to announce the 2019 information around the same time this year.
Here’s a look at the Browns opponents for 2019, per the Cleveland Browns.

Text from OBJ to me just now on the traded to #Browns “wow.”
Reported by @MikeGarafolo first. I reported on NFL LIve & @SportsCenter today an AFC North team was inquiring about obj with the #giants today. Yes that team was the #Browns…Just got off the phone w/ OBJ. Odell Beckham told me after he & I discussed what I heard about #Browns trade talk that Jarvis Landry called him & said t/ GM & the HC want you bad. Next thing you know, OBJ said Dave Gettleman called him and said “I am trading you to the #Browns.”
