Giants owner: Trading Beckham came with 'reluctant approval'

PHOENIX (AP) For all the off-field shenanigans, verbal discord and injuries, Odell Beckham Jr. still is a special player. Giants owner John Mara recognizes that in the wake of the team trading the standout wide receiver to Cleveland earlier this month.

"They made an offer that Dave (Gettleman, the Giants' general manager) and Pat (Shurmur, the coach) found compelling, and we ultimately approved it," Mara said Sunday at the NFL owners meetings. "It was a reluctant approval because I like Odell."

Mara, whose grandsons cried when told of the trade, acknowledged it's "not going to be easy" to see what Beckham does for the Browns. He didn't specify if he might bawl as well.
