Baker Mayfield seems to think Odell Beckham wants to remain with Browns
Baker Mayfield spoke with the media on Wednesday and addressed Odell Beckham Jr.’s status with the Browns.
Beckham is having a poor season with Cleveland and playing through a sports hernia injury. He reportedly has told opponents to come get him. But what he’s telling opponents may be different from what he’s telling Mayfield.
Baker told reporters that he trusts Beckham and that he knows what the two talk about.
#Browns QB Baker Mayfield on whether Odell Beckham Jr. wants to be back next season: "I can't answer that for him. I mean there's all the rumors going around, but I have my conversations with him and I know what we talk about so I trust him wholeheartedly."

Mayfield’s comments seem to suggest the two are on good terms, or at least that Odell is telling him something different from what the rumors suggest.
The Browns made a big splash by trading for Beckham during the offseason and entered the year with plenty of hype. That all quickly came crashing down as the team struggled to start the season and has a losing record at 6-7.
