Earlier this week, the Cleveland Browns officially released Odell Beckham Jr and he passed through waivers without being claimed. That meant he became a free agent for the first time in his NFL career and is free to sign with whomever wants him.
Cleveland must pay Beckham $4.25 million but will save $3 million.
According to Dianna Russini, former Browns WR Odell Beckham has narrowed his decision down to three teams; the Chiefs, Packers and Saints.
Russini adds Beckham could make a decision on where to sign as soon as today.
Green Bay is reportedly his No. 1 preferred destination. It is said that he has spoken to the Patriots and had been connected with the Seahawks earlier this week, though both now seem like less likely landing spots.
Beckham wants to spend the rest of this season with a playoff contender and in a winning environment. League insider Evan Massey also suggested Green Bay is the most likely landing spot.
For the 2021 season, Odell has 17 catches for 232 yards and zero touchdowns in six games this season. He had only two 100-yard games in 29 games after joining Cleveland in the 2019 blockbuster trade with the New York Giants.
