The Cleveland Browns are poised to release star catcher Odell Beckham Jr., according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.
Beckham, who turned 29 on Friday, was unable to move before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday, the same day his father caused a stir on social media by sharing a video of the Browns quarterback, Baker Mayfield, without throwing passes to his son. In addition to Beckham Sr.’s post, NBA superstar LeBron James tweeted: “OBJ will show again why it’s special. WR1 #FreeOBJ.”
Cleveland subsequently excused Beckham from his team’s practices on Wednesday and Thursday, and NFL journalist Michael Silver reported that head coach Kevin Stefanski had told his players that OBJ ‘was essentially not on the team at this time. moment’.
Browns general manager Andrew Berry has been meeting with Beckham’s representatives this week, and Rapoport added that his release will come after the club and Beckham agree to a modified contract. But regardless of when the play occurs, it appears that three-time Pro-Bowler Beckham played his last game in Cleveland.
In 29 games spanning two and a half seasons with the Browns, Beckham caught 114 of 210 goals for 1,586 yards and seven touchdowns. In six games in 2021, he caught just 17 of 34 goals for 232 yards and hasn’t scored a TD. In Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh, Beckham had a catch for six yards, the lowest mark for a complete game in his career.
