The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news, including a look at why Odell Beckham, Jr. is more productive in Los Angeles
Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know by now that Odell Beckham, Jr. has been much better with the Los Angeles Rams in just nine games than he was with the Cleveland Browns in nearly two and a half seasons.
Beckham had 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight regular-season games for L.A. and then had 54 yards on four catches with a touchdown in their postseason win over Arizona. For comparison, he had 232 yards on 17 receptions in six games with Cleveland — and no touchdowns.
So why is he doing so much better in Los Angeles? Well, today’s Daily Dawg Tags gets kick-started with a look at Mary Kay Cabot’s video where she gets asked that very question.

"“First, Mary Kay Cabot and Dan Labbe answer why Odell Beckham Jr. having success in LA and why didn’t it work in Cleveland.”"
The biggest takeaway from this is Mary Kay saying the issue came down to Baker Mayfield and OBJ — meaning they just didn’t work together. Her opinion is that Beckham was inside Mayfield’s head as he felt he needed to force him the ball. She also said that both players can move forward now and Beckham is back on a potential Hall of Fame track.
It might be upsetting for some fans to realize he just simply didn’t work here but wishing him the best and not looking back is the right move for everyone.
"“Children were taken to their “safe places,” and their building went on lockdown as Cleveland Browns player Malik McDowell allegedly walked outside naked before a “violent attack” on a deputy in Florida Monday.”"
The more news that comes out about this situation, the more apparent it is that McDowell needs some serious help. These details are pretty disturbing, to say the least.
"“Wilson was the second receiver off of Kiper’s board, with USC’s Drake London going 10th the Jets. That’s the player the Browns should be eyeing, and while Wilson’s a nice consolation prize, London is the player I’d be trying to pick up.”"
Dudukovich is clearly on the Drake London hype-train as he thinks Mel Kiper taking Garrett Wilson is good, but that London would be better for the Browns. London is an insane athlete and would be incredibly tempting but there’s a lot of time between now and the draft to work all this out.
Our own John Suchan looks at four players on the Browns who could be used in trade propositions this offseason. Some of the names might be surprising, but he gives his take as to why they should be considered.
After successful surgery on his shoulder, Baker Mayfield took to social media to send an update to fans where he thanked them all for their love and support.
