Well, it appears WR Odell Beckham Jr. is not going to be traded before the deadline. Of course, this means he will remain a member of the Browns likely for the remainder of the season. Unless, by some off chance, he is released from the club.
The atmosphere around the practice facility is going to be quite awkward after everything that has occurred in recent days. Specifically between Odell Beckham’s father…
Check this out:
The father of #Browns Odell Beckham Jr. posted an 11 minute video on Instagram today. The video showed multiple times that QB Baker Mayfield missed Odell Beckham Jr. Was also active in comments. pic.twitter.com/oFbJl4ExA9

Yikes. That probably took a lot of time and effort to create a video basically trying to prove how terrible his son’s quarterback is at the game. Certainly, Baker had to have taken note of this and the other odd part is OBJ did nothing to stop Dad from posting this or deleting it, too.
Cause if I was in his place I would tell Dad you need to take that down right away cause, as Terrell Owens once said in tears, “That’s my quarterback!” This simply shows that OBJ must agree with his father’s points and not like the way everything is going with his quarterback.
It’ll be interesting to see how the quarterback and wideout interact and get along within the facility. It’s crazy cause Baker essentially knows OBJ doesn’t want to be in Cleveland, doesn’t like him as the quarterback and would rather be playing for another team.
However, the two are just going to have to suck it up and find a way to play well together unless something radical happens. It starts in Cincinnati with the Browns heading there for a battle against AFC North Rivals. We’ll see how the two play and if something gets figured out.
If they are unable to work together, it could certainly spell even more trouble for the Browns as the season progresses.
