Report: Odell Beckham Jr. open to Browns reunion
Odell Beckham Jr. left the Browns in spectacular fashion last season, but that doesn’t mean he has completely closed the door on Cleveland forever. In fact, one report says Beckham would even be open to a reunion with the Browns.
A Twitter user tweeted at Beckham a few days ago that he should “come back” to Cleveland. Beckham didn’t shoot that possibility down.
“Lol that’s an interesting one,” he wrote back (lol is an acronym for “laughing out loud”).
Lol that’s an interesting one

Not only did Beckham not shoot down the possibility of a Browns reunion, but a reporter confirmed that Odell is open to the situation.
Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot says Beckham is open to a Browns reunion because he liked many of his teammates there and got along with the team’s owners. Beckham’s issue was a lack of chemistry on the field with Baker Mayfield. That was reflected in Beckham’s pedestrian numbers for Cleveland (no touchdowns in 2021), compared to his red-zone excellence with the Rams (five touchdowns in eight regular season games). But the Browns have a new quarterback in Deshaun Watson and plan to get rid of Mayfield.
Given the way Beckham left Cleveland, we definitely wouldn’t count on a reunion. Would the Browns really want him back knowing the way he’s capable of blowing things up if he’s not happy? You know what they say about “fool me once …”
