Cleveland Browns Trading Odell Beckham To Green Bay Packers?
Are the Cleveland Browns trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Green Bay Packers?
Last season, Green Bay made it all the way to the NFC Championship Game.
Behind the efforts of new head coach Matt LaFleur and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Divisional Round before ultimately falling to the San Francisco 49ers one round later.
While making it to a conference title game is nothing to sneeze at, the way in which Green Bay was so thoroughly dominated in a 17-point rout was deafening.
Rodgers is still an amazing player, there is no question about that. But he is now 36 years old. Quarterbacks do not get better when they exit their mid-30s, they get worse. The things he was able to do with little support before he may no longer be able to do going forward.
He will need help.
Recently, ESPN NFL insider Dan Orlovsky suggested a move that he believes might provide the Packers with precisely the sort of support Rodgers needs.
“If the Packers can shell out something like a second-round pick for Odell Beckham, and have Davante Adams and Odell Beckham on the other side – yes, they’ve got to win and get him the football to keep (Odell) happy – but Odell Beckham is playing better than people think,” he said.
Cleveland obviously has only had Beckham for one year, but clearly that marriage has not gone according to plan. At one point last season Beckham was literally begging opposing teams to trade for him.
Will Green Bay ultimately be able to put a deal together for Beckham? Time will tell. Should they? Absolutely.
