Baker Mayfield trusts Odell Beckham ‘wholeheartedly’ amid exit rumors

Baker Mayfield

Odell Beckham’s future with the Cleveland Browns appears less and less clear with each passing week, but Baker Mayfield isn’t letting it bother him.

Mayfield said Wednesday he trusts Beckham “wholeheartedly” while declining to speak on whether he believes Beckham wants to be back with the Browns in 2020.

That question about Beckham’s future is a big one. Having reportedly told opponents he wants to leave Cleveland, it’s not really clear if he wants to stick with Mayfield as badly as his quarterback appears to want to stick with Beckham. Mayfield’s efforts to defend Beckham and his production actually led to him going a bit too far and having to apologize. The quarterback is being a good teammate, but the jury is out on whether Beckham is as committed to the partnership.

Beckham has caught 59 passes for 844 yards and only two touchdowns this season.
