It seems like we heard Odell Beckham Jr. trade rumors monthly since it was taken over by the Cleveland Browns from the New York Giants in March 2019.
Those rumors haven’t subsided after a 2020 season that saw Beckham Jr. fight through seven games before you suffer a torn ACL. It now appears that the Browns are at least ready to listen to offers for the Pro Bowl recipient.
“I don’t think there will be a trading partner out there for him. I think he’ll be on the team this season. ” Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot was recently listed. “But I would also say, while I believe Odell and Jarvis (Landry) will be the two main recipients this year, I still think that if someone made an offer to Odell for the Browns, I still think someone would do it to you I don’t think they’re 100 percent bound to have him on the team this year. ”
Outside of OBJ, who suffered a ripped ACL last season, his contract is the biggest hiccup in terms of a potential trade. OBJ was signed as a member of the Giants back in August 2018 and plays over $ 90 million under a five-year contract. He will deposit $ 15.75 million against the cap in 2021. Very few teams currently have this type of cap.
The good news? After the 2021 campaign, there is no more dead money on the recipient’s contract. This makes a restructuring one of the ways teams could inquire, potentially leading to a trade this off-season. If so, look at three ideal destinations.
