Browns’ OBJ: “I’m Not Going Anywhere”

Maybe Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t want out, after all. On Wednesday, the mercurial wide receiver shot down rumors of a trade demand.

I’m not going anywhere. I’ll be here,” OBJ said (Twitter link via Mike Garafolo of NFL.com). “We’ll figure this thing out. It’s just too special to leave…We’regoing to be here. We’re going to do it again. And we’re going to be what we felt like we should’ve been.”

Earlier this month, it was reported that Beckham has been approaching opposing players and coaches with a plea to “come get” him. OBJ shrugged off those questions and jokingly said that he’s talked to the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts about playing for them.

Things haven’t gone according to plan for OBJ or first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens, but the Browns are reportedly planning to keep both of them in 2020. Realistically, the Browns have little choice, when it comes to Beckham. They sacrificed first- and third-round picks for the superstar earlier this year and he still has several seasons remaining on his five-year, $95MM contract.

For now – it sounds like OBJ is staying put. But, if anything changes, Beckham reportedly wouldn’t mind a return to New York with the Jets.

    They might have several years remaining on that contract, but how much of it is guaranteed after this season?

    Please. OBJ doesn’t have a vote whether or not he’s a Brown next season. It’s sorta funny how losing always follows him around. Go ‘pee’ on a goal post, or wear watches during a game; anything but actually focus on playing football.

      He has been on 2 terrible teams but sure its all his fault the Giants/Browns are inept.

          • JJB0811

            Do you even know what the word means? I said the teams he has played on are bad. That’s been true for about the past 4 years. How is that even close to racism? When have I ever written I was pro Baker, Eli or Jones and said everything is all some black wr’s fault.

            But keep clinging to some fantasy to make yourself feel good. Like that’s going to get you an autographed OBJ jersey, ha!

              Face it, you got trolled by some wanna be keyboard cowboy looking for some attention. Move along, let it drown in it’s own obscurity

          He puts up 1k yards yearly. For all the talk about how bad he has been in Cleveland he will still hit that mark. Thats a superstar WR for what the Browns have been getting out of players. But sure he once kicked a net and went on a boat so he should be out of the leauge.

            You’re not a superstar when you’re receiving 60 yards a game with no scores. His only decent game in 2 months came against the Dolphins. He gets completely shut down regularly. He’s a great talent but he’s done nothing this season.

            • amk3510

              And why do you think there is tension? A lot of times he has been open but Baker won’t hit him.

              • He’s dropped a lot of Baker’s balls. Any traffic around OBJ and sticky fingers become butter fingers.

                Looks like the corner of the end zone and the sidelines are the only place OBJ likes to catch the ball.

          • Whateverworks77

            Browns are probably getting the nfl rushing leader this year…what’s your point?

        • Yes, he did. He had one of the greatest starts to a career for a wide receiver in NFL history. It’s so stupid to attack him for his on-field performance. If you don’t like the antics or him acting like a diva, fine. But his performance has been unquestionably sublime.

          Remember that he has played for old Tom Coughlin, Ben effing McAdoo, Pat Schurmer, and Freddie Kitchens. The teams have been awful with awful coaching. Jerry Rice wouldn’t have been able to make those teams good.

    I’m so happy to hear this. I look forward to another underachieving season under Kitchens.

  4. sufferfortribe

    I’m not going anywhere, says OBJ, as Browns fans turn their allegiance to another team in town, the Cleveland Monsters……who suck just as bad, but are far more entertaining.

  5. crosseyedlemon

    Winnipeg Blue Bombers won the CFL championship in November without him, so OBJ will be waiting a long time for them to come calling.

  6. Kitchens is a bit of a dweeb loser who can’t control the monsters which Dorsey has conjured for him. The Browns need to bring in a real head coach who could channel the collective talents and egos into an effective team.

    Kitchens is the assistant coach that players go to cry to when the head coach hammers him, not a strategic genius whom they admire and try to please. Also-ran Kitchens. Also-ran Browns.
