OBJ looking for new money.
Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly wants the Cleveland Browns torestructure his five-year $90 million contract, following Tuesday night's blockbuster trade.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Beckham is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Antonio Brown, who will now receive a little over $50.1 million from the Raiders through the 2021 season, up from $38.9 million under the deal's original terms. According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, Oakland also gave AB $30.1M guaranteed.
The 26-year old Pro Bowler signed his five-year $90 million contract with the New York Giants last August, and still has $72.7 million remaining on that deal. However, his guaranteed money is limited to $16.7 million in the 2019 NFL season alone.
According to CBS Sports' Jason La Confora, the Browns have already been in contact with OBJ's representatives regarding his wishes for a restructured contract.
In 12 games last season, OBJ caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns, as the G-Men finished in last place in the NFC East with a 5-11 record.
The Browns acquired Beckham Jr. from the Giants last night in exchange for their 2019 first round pick (17th overall), a third-round pick and safety Jabrill Peppers.
