Beckham’s miscasting in Cleveland was never actually acknowledged by either the team or the star wide receiver. Now? It’s suddenly a foregone conclusion that Beckham’s pairing with the Browns has not worked and, more importantly, will not ever work. In the wake of his father publicly slamming quarterback Baker Mayfield, and Beckham himself officially requesting a trade prior to Tuesday’s deadline, per Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, the two sides are finally working toward a split.
CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported Wednesday that the Browns are prepared to keep Beckham on their roster for the remainder of the season, only to excuse him from all team activities
Early Tuesday, Odell Beckham Jr.’s father shared an 11-minute video to Instagram of his son not being thrown the ball by Browns quarterbacks, primarily including Baker Mayfield.
The video was a screen recording of a YouTube video that goes week by week showing the Browns receiver being left open during a route.
