Cleveland Browns: Could Odell Beckham Jr be demanding return to The Big Apple?
After one drama filled season with the Cleveland Browns, Odell Beckham Jr could be looking for a return to New York – just not the same team that drafted him.
It wasn’t a pretty year in 2019 for Odell Beckham Jr. The Cleveland Browns acquired Beckham from the New York Giants in a blockbuster trade prior to the 2019 season.
Although he didn’t miss any games, he struggled through injuries and chemistry with his coach and quarterback, leading to a disappointing year for both he and the Browns.
It wasn’t just a tough season on the field for OBJ, however, as he struggled with plenty of off the field drama as well.
Be it the watch he wore during a game, the cleats that were out of uniform, or the reports of asking for teams to “come get me” while playing, drama followed Odell wherever he went in 2019.
That drama has continued to follow him into this offseason as well, it seems, as the a new report has emerged saying that Sports Illustrated was told by an anonymous NFL source that if the Browns do move on from Beckham, he wants to go back to The Big Apple and play for the New York Jets.
While the source didn’t say Beckham is demanding a trade, they did say that if he were to be moved, he would prefer it to be New York.
With Beckham’s history in the city with the Giants and his star power in this league, he’s more than able to manage things and have everything end up how he wants it.
If a trip back to New York to play for the Jets, who have the cap space and need for a superstar offensive playmaker such as OBJ, is what Odell wants, you can bet that’s what Odell will get.
