Odell Beckham’s time with the Cleveland Browns didn’t start on the right note, but the talented wideout could turn his luck around next season. After all, it sounds like the front office want to trade him at the moment.
Beckham struggled to get on the same page as Baker Mayfield this past season. The former first-round pick had 74 receptions for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns, which is below his standards.
Trade rumors involving Beckham have been floating around for the past few months. However, the new regime in Cleveland hasn’t really said anything about moving on from the All-Pro talent.
On Tuesday, Browns general manager Andrew Berry commented on Beckham’s future. Any talk about Beckham being on the move was nonexistent during his press conference, as Berry said “We view him as a part of our future.”

Cleveland has Beckham under control for four more years.
The logical move for the Browns here is to give it another shot with Beckham on the roster. Management has to allow him to recover from his core muscle surgery and develop more chemistry with Mayfield.
On the flip side, it would be intriguing to see which teams would express interest in Beckham if he was available on the market.
