Odell Beckham Jr. enjoyed a strong reputation as a New York Giants player.

He was signed by the Cleveland Browns in 2019 and arrived in the AFC with huge expectations.

However, his time with the Browns has been marred with injury. The LSU graduate has failed to establish himself as a fixed feature in head coach Kevin Stefanski’s offence. The former Minnesota Vikings coach has backed a rushing offence centred around Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.

There is still no confirmation from Stefanski and Co. that they are open to the idea of letting OBJ depart before deadline day. The 28-year old recently returned from injury.
