Today on his 29th birthday, Odell Beckham Jr. is a free man. Well, at least he is free from the Browns. According to the Browns GM Andrew Berry the Browns have severed ties with their star wide receiver.
“After careful consideration, internal discussions and conversations with Odell and his representation, we’ve determined that it is in the best interest of all parties involved that Odell no longer play for the Cleveland Browns,” GM Andrew Berry said in a statement moments ago.
“We appreciate all his efforts and contributions while in Cleveland, but we’ve just reached a point where it is best that we move forward as a team without Odell. We are finalizing the process of granting Odell his release and we wish him well as he continues his career.”
Odell played three seasons in Cleveland for the Browns and was growing apart from the team. There were reports he requested a trade multiple times. The team did not listen though.
Now, Odell Beckham Jr. will be subject to the waiver wire. He may not like this, because right now the first pick is owned by the Detroit Lions. Here are five teams we could see putting in a waiver claim for OBJ.
