As a Browns fan, this one hurts to write, but it's the reality of the situation. The Browns have simply been so disappointing that it wouldn't be a shock at all if Odell Beckham Jr. pushes for a trade next season. Can anyone really blame him, either? The Browns offense is lifeless and can't get OBJ the ball. Imagine that. They can't get OBJ the damn ball. Crazy.
Rumors had already started to swirl that Odell could be on the move once again and out of Cleveland. According to B/R, rival teams are already planning to make a run at Beckham next season. It's going to be a thing and something the Browns will need to consider if things don't change quickly.
With rumors already in the air, Odell added fuel to the fire this week with comments about his future in Cleveland. "No one knows what the future holds. I couldn't sit here and tell you whether I'm going to be here, want to be here, don't want to be here. This is exactly where I'm at now and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. God has a plan," Beckham said.
Following the comments earlier in the week, Jay Glazer is now reporting that Beckham has told other players and coaches on opposing teams to "come get him." It appears that things might not last long in Cleveland for Odell.
While Beckham previously said he wouldn't rather be anywhere else, the overall comments are really vague and open up the door to people thinking he might not want to be in Cleveland going forward. With the way the season has unfolded, nobody can really blame Odell for having second thoughts, but it would be wild to see him traded twice in two years.
We picked out five teams that should absolutely try to make a run at Odell if he is indeed put on the trade block once again.
