The father of Cleveland wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. posted a video on social media Tuesday highlighting times when Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield didn’t throw the ball to Beckham when he was open. The fallout over what has happened in the days since seems to have pleased Odell senior.
On Thursday, Beckham Sr. publicly thanked the creator of that video, which seemed like he was doing so because his son exactly the outcome he was looking for.
Beckham Jr. had just one catch for 6 yards during Sunday’s 15-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
On Thursday, Odell was excused from practice for a second straight day. It does not appear he will play another game for the franchise.
The Browns didn’t trade Beckham ahead of the deadline. So now the sides are trying to figure out the next steps while the receiver stays away from the team. As all players are after the trade deadline, Beckham would be subject to waivers if released.
