Brandon LaFell used the Odell Beckham trade as an opportunity to take a shot at New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman.

Following the blockbuster trade that was reported on Tuesday, Twitter reacted instantly. There was a surprising amount of optimism surrounding the Browns for once . Among the many to get in on the act was Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell, who commented “Gettlemen strikes again” and added some laughing emojis and facepalms.

Prior to joining the Giants, Gettleman was the general manager of the Carolina Panthers from 2013 to 2016. For one of those season seasons, Brandon LaFell was a member of the Panthers. Following the 2013 season, LaFell signed a three-year deal with the New England Patriots after Gettleman allowed LaFell to become a free agent.

It’s understandable why LaFell would be quick to pile on given his history with the Giants general manager.
