Cleveland Browns: Landing Spots for Odell Beckham Jr. This Offseason?
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is done for the season with a torn ACL. It appears as if quarterback Baker Mayfield is going to be better off without him. Because of it, where could Odell Beckham Jr. be traded to in the offseason?
The first team that comes to mind is the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers is running out of time to win a Super Bowl. They have Davante Adams and really no body else at the wide receiver position though.
The second team that comes to mind is the New York Giants. Look, I don’t think Odell Beckham Jr. wanted to leave in the first place. It is very possible that General Manager Dave Gettleman gets fired in the offseason and new management will want to take him to pair him backup with Saquon Barkley in the backfield and Daniel Jones at the quarterback position though.
The third team that comes to mind is the Chicago Bears. What if Allen Robinson does come back? They need a true number two receiver in Chicago to make the offense more dangerous with having a solid defense in place for Matt Nagy’s bunch though.
The fourth team that comes to mind is the New England Patriots. Cam Newton needs a talented wide receiver to work with in the worst way. They have no weapons on the outside for Bill Belichick’s bunch and they will need help for Julian Edeleman and N’Keal Harry is a bust though.
The fifth team that comes to mind is the Indianapolis Colts. General Manager Chris Ballard loves to make trades. This team needs another weapon on the outside with Michael Pittman Jr., Parris Campbell, and T.Y. Hilton. Philip Rivers won’t be there after this season most likely for Frank Reich‘s bunch. It could be Jacoby Brissett, Jacob Eason, or someone else though.
The sixth team that comes to mind is the Vegas Raiders. This team has been better. Derek Carr is having a much better season. They are young and upcoming. However, would General Manager Mike Mayock and Head Coach Jon Gruden want to deal with another Antonio Brown type of player though?
Odell Beckham Jr. is 27 years old. He is still owed over $15 million for the next three season and Beckham Jr. won’t be a free agent until after the 2023 season. Maybe he would retire before the 2024 or the 2025 season depending how things rolled out.
He caught 23 passes for 319 yards receiving and three touchdowns. In his career, Odell Beckham Jr. has caught 487 passes for 6,830 yards receiving and 51 touchdowns.
He is the heartbeat and the heart and soul of this wide receiving core. It could be tough to replace him but we will see.
They may miss Odell Beckham Jr. playing on the field, but in reality, they are going to be trading him in the offseason. The reason is that they are going to realize that Baker Mayfield is going to play much better for Head Coach Kevin Stefanski.
The Cleveland Browns will finally realize that Mayfield hasn’t been the problem all along and there will be no need for them to go with Case Keenum moving forward and the threat for him being benched won’t happen though.
Some teams could use wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in a second, but there is no need for him to be with the Cleveland Browns. The chemistry isn’t there with him and Baker Mayfield though.
Where will Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. be next season after getting injured against the Cincinnati Bengals and possibly being traded to? Leave a comment below.
