Eli Manning Learned Giants Traded Odell Beckham Through News Ticker While Watching TV

The Giants made a potentially franchise-altering move last month when they traded three-time Pro Bowler Odell Beckham to the Browns, but the team's franchise quarterback found out just like the rest of us.

When speaking with reporters Monday, Eli Manning explained that he learned about the deal between New York and Cleveland while he was watching television and he saw the news ticker saying his teammate of five years had been sent out of town, according to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network.

Manning says he's been in touch with Beckham since the deal and mentioned they were good friends.
