The relationship between the Cleveland Browns and Odell Beckham Jr. just got so much worse.
Odell came in ready to practice on Wednesday, but the team excused him from practice.
This news came less than 24 hours after Odell Beckham Sr. posted a video on social media early Tuesday highlighting times when Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield didn’t throw the ball to Beckham when he was open. Odell Beckham Sr. then responded with three green check marks in the comments section of a post that said Mayfield was “either hating on Odell or he just doesn’t want him shining.”
Beckham Jr. had just one catch for 6 yards during Sunday’s 15-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Mayfield ranks just 26th in QBR and has only six touchdown passes. For Odell, he currently ranks 151st in the league in receptions.
The Browns did not end up trading Beckham by Tuesday’s deadline and now that decision has turned into an even bigger problem for the locker room going forward.
On the other hand, they could also look to release hm from the roster, as noted below:
The receiver is under contract for two more seasons but has no guaranteed money left on his deal.
