Report: Odell Beckham will eventually be traded by Browns
While another set of Odell Beckham trade rumors have been debunked for now, it sounds like his long-term future may not be secure in Cleveland after all.
Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman spoke to multiple sources who corroborated reports that there was nothing to the rumor linking Beckham to the Vikings. Those sources did, however, tell Freeman that they believe it’s only a “matter of time” before Cleveland does trade Beckham.
The root issue is that Beckham is viewed as a poor fit with quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield’s inconsistent accuracy is frustrating to Beckham, who demands accuracy from quarterbacks to get the best out of himself.
For now, all indications are that the Browns plan to keep Beckham for 2020. He’s under contract through 2023 though, and with top wide receivers traded more than ever, the reality is Beckham may not see out his contract with Cleveland in the long run.
