Report: Odell Beckham Jr. wants out of Cleveland

Rumors continue to circulate about Odell Beckham Jr’s status in Cleveland.

Earlier this week, Odell Beckham Jr. wouldn’t say that he wants to return to Cleveland next season, and now Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reports that Beckham has been telling teammates he wants out and even telling opponents during games to “come get me.”

You cannot dismiss Glazer’s reporting, especially on Beckham, as he was the only one saying that he would be traded from the Giants when the Giants’ brass adamantly denied the fact.

The Browns appear to have made a mistake hiring Freddie Kitchens, as he has been dysfunctional with offensive play-calling duties. Cleveland seemed to be set up for a strong 2019 but couldn’t get the offense on the same page. Beckham Jr. hasn’t been vocal about his dissatisfaction this season, but there’s little doubt that he doesn’t like how the offense has run.

He will again have many suitors but teams will likely be a little more wary this time around. His talent is still high and he would be an upgrade to any passing game in the NFL.
