Odell Beckham Jr unsure of his future with Browns
Odell Beckham Jr has already been the subject of trade rumors in his first season with the Cleveland Browns, and some believe the team could look to move him this offseason. Not only is Beckham unsure if that will happen, but he also can’t predict whether or not he will want to remain with the Browns.
Beckham was asked on Thursday about his future in Cleveland, and he said he is very happy with the Browns but cannot speculate about how he is going to feel down the road.
Odell Beckham, asked about his future in Cleveland: “I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen. … Whether I’m going to be here, want to be here, don’t want to be here. This is exactly where I’m at now. I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.” pic.twitter.com/mBNCWJevPw

Beckham did say there is nowhere else he wants to be playing at the moment, but his comments were a far cry from “I want to be a Cleveland Brown for life.” A lot of that has to do with the fact that he already went through this with the New York Giants, so he knows nothing in the NFL is a guarantee.
The Browns entered the season with huge expectations, and the addition of Beckham was a big reason for that. However, he has not been able to establish all that great of a rapport with Baker Mayfield, though he is still on pace for a 1,000-yard season.
Unless Beckham wants out, the Browns probably will not shop him around aggressively this offseason. They seem more likely to bring in a new coach than they are to make major changes to their roster, even if some around the NFL think a big trade could be coming.
