The Cleveland Browns may have lost their game to the New England Patriots yesterday, but it appears that at least one Browns player gained a new fan.
According to Boston Globe reporter Nicole Yang, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his nine-year-old son Ben waited outside the Browns’ locker room after the game to meet with one person: Odell Beckham Jr.
Per the report, Brady, Beckham and Ben had a “lengthy chat well after both locker rooms had cleared out.”

New England easily beat the Browns at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, winning 27-13.
Beckham was held to five receptions for 52 yards and no touchdowns in the loss. Though he did have a very nice 31 yard grab during the fourth quarter.
It should come as no surprise that Brady’s son was so interested in talking to Beckham, though. Despite his production he’s still widely considered one of the best – and most popular – players in football.
Brady has played with and against tons of wide receivers during his 20 years in the NFL. But none except Randy Moss have ever been as high profile or talented as Odell Beckham.
The Browns star might not be leaving Cleveland anytime soon, but there’s at least one member of Tom Brady’s inner circle who might love to see him in New England.
