Last week saw the Cleveland Browns succumb to yet another low when they lost their fourth match of this season to the Pittsburgh Steelers. While their recent strings of losses have mostly been because of sloppy mistakes, there is one more thing that has caught the eye of any is Odell Beckham Jr’s lack of involvement. It almost feels like none of the players like to pass the ball to him.
His partnership with Baker Mayfield hasn’t clicked since the past 2 and a half years. Things sunk to a new low in the last match for Odell, as it was his worse performance statistically hauling in just one pass for six yards. Thanks to the frustrating past two years at the Browns, and social media pressure from his family and fans, the Browns have decided to part ways with the WR. And as expected for a player of his stature, there is no shortage of suitors for him.
CONFIRMED! Cleveland Browns all set to release Odell Beckham Jr
Odell Beckham Jr will no longer be a Cleveland Browns player. A league source told Yahoo Sports that the Browns had reached a deal to release Beckham. According to the source, the deal has been in the works since Tuesday night. As per the source, the Browns and Beckham’s agents were still discussing financial arrangements on Thursday. Once the formalities will get sorted out, it will eventually lead to the Browns placing Beckham on waivers.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk also was another source who confirmed Beckham’s release. On Thursday night, he claimed that the Browns want to release Beckham on Friday after reaching an agreement on a new deal. As per Mike, after “careful thought,” the team concluded it “is in the best interest of all parties concerned that Odell no longer plays for the Cleveland Browns,”

New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders interested in snapping up the Wide Receiver
When a player of Odell Beckham Jr’s stature wants to leave his club, it’s normal that he will have many suitors. According to ever-reliable Jordan Schultz, New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders are amongst the two teams interested in signing the wide receiver.
Both the teams have been struggling with their own wide receivers and Beckham Jr will be an instant starter at both teams. While the Raiders last night released their wide Receiver Henry Ruggs III for facing DUI charges, New Orleans Saints are amongst the worst group of pass-catchers in the NFL.
