Former New York Giants’ star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly wants out from his current organization, the Cleveland Browns.
Will Odell Beckham Jr. be one-and-one with the Cleveland Browns? We don’t know for sure, as there are still four weeks remaining in the 2019 regular season. However, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, that’s exactly what OBJ wants.
Glazer mentioned on the Fox NFL Sunday pregame show that Beckham has told others he wants to be out of Cleveland.
Whether that means a trade or release is yet to be determined, as that’s ultimately up to the organization.
However, a trade could be more likely. Beckham is under contract through the 2023 season.

Beckham’s current deal stems from the five-year, $90-million extension he signed with the New York Giants prior to the 2018 regular season.
After just one year, Big Blue dealt him to Cleveland for first-round and third-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft along with veteran safety Jabrill Peppers.
The first-round selection for the Giants ended up becoming defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence. The selection in the third round was linebacker Oshane Ximines.
Beckham has had a disappointing year in his inaugural campaign with the Browns. In 12 games, he’s caught 57 balls for 805 yards and two touchdowns. He’s racked up 100 or more yards receiving in just two games this year.
