According to Colin Cowherd, Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wants to get out of Cleveland amid the ongoing chatter involving him and the Minnesota Vikings.
During his show, Cowherd revealed that the same source that told him Tom Brady was headed to the Tampa Bay Bucs is also telling him Beckham “wants out” of the Browns, who acquired the popular wideout via trade in March 2019.
“He’s not gonna make a big deal. He’ll deny it. He wants to get along with everybody. … Let’s just say this: OBJ will not go public, [but] he knows Minnesota is a good place. He knows it’s a good fit,” Cowherd shared.
The recent rumors surrounding Beckham was the Vikings reportedly willing to give up a second and fifth-round pick in next year’s draft for the star receiver.
However, the trade chatter has been dismissed as “false” and “fake news.”
In December 2019, he said that he’s not going to bolt from the franchise amid a tough first year campaign.
“It’s done. It’s over with. I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be here. We’re going to figure this thing out. It’s just too special to leave,” Beckham said, per Mary K. Cabot of cleveland.com.
“I didn’t buy a house here to sell it. I know people have said ‘I didn’t sign and trade them’ before but I didn’t buy a house here to up and leave it and do renovations on a house and build a dog house.”
