Browns among the "contenders" for OBJ according to report.
Despite several April Fools rumors, Odell Beckham Jr. is still a member of the New York Giants, but there remains a very real possibility that Beckham Jr. is dealt before the start of the 2018 NFL season. Last week, the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard reported that the Giants were "officially open to fielding offers" for Odell Beckham Jr.
There are a number of teams interested in the 25-year old Pro Bowl receiver and while the G-Men are reportedly seeking two first round picks in any trade, there's a case to be made that they'd settle for less.
According to Jason La Confora of CBS Sports, the Cleveland Browns, a team that has several draft picks at their disposal, are among the "contenders" looking to land an offensive weapon.
Via CBS Sports:
"No team has more draft capital and general manager John Dorsey will think outside the box and he could actually afford to pay Jarvis Landry and Beckham -- reuniting the best buds and college teammates -- and still field a quality roster. Especially with a cheap quarterback he is about to draft. IF Beckham's price becomes more like a couple of second round picks there is no reason the Browns can't be very involved."
La Confora also lists the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks as "contenders," but the Browns could be an interesting team to watch given all the moves they've already made this off-season and the number of draft picks at their disposal.
Beckham Jr. is reportedly prepared to hold out if he and the Giants, or any team, are unable to agree to a new contract extension before next season. As it stands, he's set to make around $8.5 million during the 2018 season as part of his fifth-year option.
