Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
Ever since Odell Beckhma, Jr. joined the Cleveland Browns he has been on the trading block. Or at least it feels that way since he’s constantly having his name dropped in trade rumors.
For the record, the rumors are always disputed and the young wide receiver hasn’t been shopped by the Browns. Instead, they’ve been thrilled about what he can do for them in 2020 and he’s apparently just as excited as they are.
OBJ played all 16 games last season for Cleveland but he was never fully healthy. After having offseason surgery, he feels like himself again and says he has unfinished business with the Browns.
He also says he’s not going to the New England Patriots, even though his name once again popped up in trade rumors.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
