Could Odell Beckham be looking to leave the Cleveland Browns?
The high-profile wideout has been seen working out a lot this offseason but he has been doing so with members of an opposing team.
First, it started out innocently enough as he was working with free-agent quarterback Cam Newton. However, Newton has now signed with the New England Patriots and OBJ is not only still working out with him, but other members of the Patriots have also been working out with them as well.
Beckham working out with members of the Patriots is going to eventually lead to rumors that he wants to be sent out of town — if they haven’t already.
There are two things to consider when hearing such a rumor. One is the fact that what Beckham and his friends are doing isn’t uncommon. Players in today’s era are constantly working out one with one another, which usually makes this no big deal.
However, there’s also a precedent when Beckham is concerned. Back in 2018, he had started having similar workouts with Baker Mayfield, Tyrod Taylor, and Jarvis Landry who were all with the Browns at that time.
Trade rumors went out of control and the Giants shut them down one by one. Then, the following season, they traded OBJ to the Browns.
None of that means Beckham wants a trade now or that the Browns are actively searching for one. But we also can’t ignore the past.
Beckham could be working out with whoever he wants and for whatever reason, those players are all on the Patriots. Surely with him being involved, the rumors will be coming — and once they do, they won’t be stopping.
