Odell Beckham Jr spent his offseason trying to escape from Cleveland. The three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver first requested to be moved while he recovered from ACL surgery due to an injury he suffered against the Cincinnati Bengals last season.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the most recent request for a trade came after the Browns were beaten at home on Sunday by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“The 15-10 loss to the Steelers, in which Beckham played 43 snaps for 73%, was the fourth time in six games that Beckham finished with receiving yardage in the 20s or less — something that happened only three times in his 59 games with the Giants.”

The Browns are planning to release Beckham as soon as the two parties can reach a financial deal. Beckham’s father, Odell Sr took to Instagram three days ago and threw some shade at Browns QB Baker Mayfield. On his post, he shared a video of the quarterback overlooking or missing throws to his son.

The Browns were unable to move Beckham before Tuesday’s 4PM trade deadline. Now, it appears that he will be released by Cleveland. It is very likely that another NFL franchise will pick him up on waivers.

If Beckham, who is owed $8.05 million by the Browns, is not claimed via waivers, he becomes a free agent and can sign anywhere he pleases. That is the dream scenario for Odell and his agent, Zeke Sandhu. There are a lot of quarterbacks in the NFL licking their chops, and one would think Tom Brady might be among them.
