The Odell Beckham trade took many in the football world aback. Trading an elite wide receiver in his prime just after signing him to a five-year deal a year prior was considered an unthinkable move, at least it was before Tuesday.
Ahead of a boxing match at AT&T Stadium, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked what his thoughts were after Beckham, previously an NFC East rival, had been traded.
Beckham was a thorn in Dallas' side during his five seasons in New York. In seven career games against the Cowboys, OBJ reeled in 35 catches for 477 yards and five touchdowns.
Now he'll be terrorizing teams in the AFC North, in another division and conference, far away from Jerry's 'Boys, who have bigger things to worry about this offseason.
"We know we've got to put the money in the guys that'll get us here and it just happens we're lucky to have (Dak) Prescott ... we've got (Amari) Cooper, we've got guys we really need to spend our money on. Lawrence, DeMarcus Lawrence," Jones explained. "We've got some great players. It reminds me of when I came into the NFL. We had great players. ... We slipped Deion Sanders into there. We've got a base core team, young."
