REPORTS: Odell Beckham Jr. Open To Make A Comeback To The Cleveland Browns Following Deshaun Watson Trade

Published 03/23/2022, 7:30 AM EDT

The 2021 Super Bowl-winning wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is open to going back to play with the Cleveland Browns. While the Los Angeles Rams GM Les Snead has shown a desire to re-sign OBJ, the landing of Deshaun Watson in Cleveland seems to have thrown a spanner into the works. The 3-time Pro Bowler has left the door open, and NFL fans might once again see him don the Browns jersey in 2022.

According to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, OBJ never lost his love for the city of Cleveland and the Browns fans. The trade to the Rams took place after an unsustainable relationship with QB Baker Mayfield reached a point of no return.

But some reports suggest that it was related to problems strictly on the football field, and everything was normal for OBJ off the field.

The feeling within the Browns roster seems to be favorable for OBJ. A notable attraction for him might be the Browns’ acquisition of QB Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans in a blockbuster trade. The move for the superstar wideout could be something that the organization might consider as they look to make strides next season.

Is going back to Cleveland the best option for Odell Beckham Jr.??

While a return to Cleveland might be something that is an option for the Rams stat, staying in Los Angeles with a stacked team isn’t bad either. With GM Snead calling his re-signing a complex situation, his serious knee injury during Super Bowl LVI has given the Rams something to think. A big question will be his recovery from ACL surgery which will likely keep him sidelined well past the beginning of the 2022 season.

The move to the Rams witnessed OBJ have a career resurgence while being a key player during Los Angeles’ championship run. While playing in 12 games with the Rams, including playoffs, OBJ ended up catching 48 passes for 593 yards and 7 TDs.

He also stepped up in a big way in the most crucial game of their seasons by scoring the first touchdown of their Super Bowl LVI victory.

The rumors about a trade to the Browns only gain more weight after the Rams signed free-agent WR Allen Robinson II. While the Rams have other areas of their roster to address, it seems re-signing OBJ might be a luxury. NFL fans will hope to see OBJ take the field as a champion, irrespective of where he decides to play next season.
