RUMOR: Cleveland Browns “Listening” To Trade Offers For Odell Beckham Jr.
The Cleveland Browns were crowned by many as the “NFL Offseason Champions,” after they made several moves that was unlike the franchise we used to know.
Those offseason moves have not gone according to plan as the team is off to a 2-3 start and quarterback Baker Mayfield continues to struggle behind center.
According to the latest rumors, Odell Beckham Jr., who has just 23 catches for 335 yards and one touchdown, might be on his way out after being traded there by the New York Giants.
Sports radio host Dan Sileo took to Twitter and basically confirmed that the Cleveland Browns were fielding calls to trade Odell Beckham Jr.
He listed the Patriots, Eagles, and 49ers as potential suitors.
Also, Instagram account “JPAFootball” (with 127,000k followers) also claims a source told him the Browns are reportedly “listening” to offers for Beckham. The same teams are mentioned.
Even Fox Sports radio host, Colin Cowherd, stated the Browns should part ways with OBJ.
“…I would strongly consider trading OBJ and there are three reasons for this,” said Cowherd.
It’s highly unlikely the Browns make that move, given that they sent a first-round pick, Jabril Peppers (a recent first-round pick) and a second-round pick to the New York Giants to acquire Odell.
Again, take this with a grain of salt and just treat it as a rumor and nothing else.
