After the season, will Odell Beckham trade be likely?

So no I don’t think the Browns will trade Beckham this season. Now what happens following this season is still unclear.

When I was asked by my buddies the other day, why wouldn’t the Browns try and trade Beckham after the season, especially after the season? Their contention was that, if Beckham has a hell of a season, and has career totals, why not try to get the maximum value from trading him then?

As interesting as that proposition sounds, I wouldn’t even consider that option.


It’s simple. Beckham is a talent in the NFL that only comes around so often in the league. And the Browns have him on their team, which is trying to get that Vince Lombardi Trophy. If Beckham has that career season that we are all hoping for, then why wouldn’t I rather expect even more from a player like Beckham, who is by all accounts, focused on mastering his craft.

The other part of this trade Beckham at the end of the season argument is that the Browns are looking to resign players like Mayfield and Chubb to bigger contracts in the future and the money won’t be there to keep players like Beckham. Once Mayfield signs that big contract he’ll never have the talent on the team like he does today because the Browns can’t pay players like Beckham in the future and the Browns will miss their window of opportunity to get that Super Bowl.

Speculation is what fuels all of us who follow our favorite sports teams.
