Odell Beckham says he intends to remain with Browns
Odell Beckham Jr. has given his strongest signal yet that he intends to stick it out with the Cleveland Browns.
On Wednesday, Beckham joked that he’d spoken to CFL teams about playing there before stating that he wasn’t going anywhere and would stay in Cleveland.
Odell Beckham jokes he’s talked to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts about playing for them then adds: “I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be here (with the #Browns). We’ll figure this thing out.”

This will not be enough to stop the weeks of speculation we’ve seen since it came out that Beckham spent the month of October asking rival teams to come get him. It is, however, something the Browns will want to hear. He still has four years left on his contract, and the Browns did not trade for him to have him as a short-term rental, even if there’s been a bit of drama as a result of his presence.
Beckham has 910 receiving yards this season, but only two touchdowns. The Browns are betting that they’ll be able to keep him and he’ll settle in for the long-term with improved numbers.
