The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Odell Beckham, Jr. feeling as though he's being targeted with PED tests

Ever since joining the Cleveland Browns, Odell Beckham, Jr. has been making headlines for the wrong reasons. One of the most electric receivers in the game, OBJ hasn't been a huge factor on the field but does continue to make headlines anyway.

First, it was him skipping OTAs and since then, it's been a lot of little stuff. From unapproved visors to the wrong color cleats, Beckham has seemed to be under a microscope.

Apparently, that's happening off the field as well. OBJ recently said the league is now testing him for PEDs more than anyone else. He claims many players can go months without a test, whereas he gets hit twice a week with a random test.

We look at that story and more in today's Daily Dawg Tags.

Odell Beckham Jr. tells he’s upset over volume of random drug tests: ‘Nobody is getting tested like me’ — Hayden Grove,

“(The NFL) made me come in Monday when we had an off day. Had a drug test," Beckham said. “Made me come in Thursday after the game. Had another drug test.

“Every week, twice a week.”

This isn't the first time Odell Beckham has said the league has a vendetta against him. He's often said he feels like the most scrutinized player in the league. He's never done anything serious but has gained unwanted attention for wearing an unapproved watch, a tinted visor, and the wrong cleats. Now he also feels like he is being targeted with the PED testing which has him extremely frustrated.

Baker Mayfield wins referee criticism appeal

Baker Mayfield was fined for criticizing the officials in their loss to Seattle earlier this year. However, he ended up winning his appeal. The league may have looked at the film and agreed, which would have been hard not to do. That was a rough game for the refs.

Cleveland Browns have no room to take the Miami Dolphins lightly

Cleveland has a winnable game this weekend with the Miami Dolphins coming to town. They just need to make sure they don't look past this opponent.

"Garrett was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for his violent actions and he’ll have his appeal heard Wednesday. As the Browns returned to practice Monday without their best defensive player, Richardson said Rudolph should have been disciplined for grabbing Garrett’s face mask and scratching him."

Richardson isn't alone in this belief. The league seems content to give Mason Rudolph a slap on the wrist, which is ridiculous. Garrett shouldn't get a pass on what he did but none of it happens if Rudolph doesn't start the fight.
