Could Odell Beckham Jr. return to Cleveland? According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, OBJ “is open to the possibility” of signing with the Browns. However, it’s uncertain if the Browns would have interest in a reunion.
Yesterday, Beckham responded to a tweet asking about his interest in joining the Browns, stating “that’s an interesting one.” Per Cabot, OBJ only wanted to move on from the Browns once his relationship with quarterback Baker Mayfield “reached the point of no return,” and the veteran “loved his teammates and Browns fans.” As Cabot notes, OBJ does have fans in owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam, and he still “has the full support of his former Browns teammates.”
In a world where OBJ does return to Cleveland, he’d be re-joining a completely revamped offense. Deshaun Watson is now under center, and while Jarvis Landry won’t be back, the Browns upgraded to Amari Cooper. Beckham would surely have a significant role in the Cleveland offense despite his inconsistent two-plus seasons with the organization.
OBJ joined the Rams after getting let go by the Browns, and he proceeded to haul in 27 receptions for 305 yards and five touchdowns in eight games (seven starts) down the stretch. He hauled in another two touchdowns in the playoffs before suffering a knee injury during the Super Bowl.
