Odell Beckham, Jr. On His Future w/ The Cleveland Browns – I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen
NFL star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr.’s first season in Cleveland has come to a disappointing 5-7 amidst of one his least productive seasons of his career. On Thursday, the 27-year-old spoke with reporters after a team practice on his future with the Browns. He begins,
“No one knows what the future holds, like tomorrow. I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen.”
“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.”
While OBJ has four years left on a five-year extension he signed with the Giants back in 2018, the Browns now owns his rights. After just one season, OBJ carries the highest salary on Cleveland’s roster. However, OBJ didn’t fully commit to the Browns as he’s learned his lesson on speaking on trade rumors from his fallout with the Giants.
“I feel like I’ve been here before, asking questions about the next team while I’m on a team already. That’s something I just tune out for right now. Catch me in the offseason and see what happens.”
Browns coach Freddie Kitchens was asked if OBJ has expressed any frustration with his production on the field.
“Odell has not been a problem at all. Really, if it was not Odell, we would not be even asking these questions about that kind of outlier type stuff. Odell has been fine. He has been good. Helps everybody, helps the young guys. Baker and Odell have a good dialogue. Everything is good.”
Through 12 games, OBJ has over 50 catches, with 805 receiving yards and just two touchdowns. He also has gone six consecutive games without topping 100 receiving yards for the first time in his NFL career.
