Odell Beckham Reveals Which Team He’d Never Play For
Odell Beckham reveals which team he’d never play for in a new interview.
Coming into this NFL season expectations were very high for what Beckham would be able to achieve with the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns gave the New York Giants a lot in exchange for the talented wide receiver, and the hope was he be an instant shot of adrenalize for the offense.
Baker Mayfield had a strong rookie campaign last season, and the hope was he would be able to build on that this year.
Cleveland was described by many as a dark horse contender for the divisional crown.
Things did not quite go according to plan, though.
The wheels quickly came off the car as the year progressed and the Browns now find themselves sitting at 6-8 through 14 games.
It goes without saying that this team won’t make the playoffs, but the real problem is the dysfunction that has followed it all season long.
Two weeks ago, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that Beckham had been telling multiple rival organizations to come and trade for him.
Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports would eventually confirm that report.
This was a startling revelation for multiple reasons.
One, the Browns gave up an arm and a leg to acquire Beckham just one season ago.
Two, publicly demanding other teams trade for you is just a new level of disrespect.
And three, it spoke volumes about the lack of respect Beckham had for his young quarterback.
This week, Beckham was pressed on his wanting out of Cleveland. While answering reporter questions, the wide receiver did reveal the one team he would absolutely never play for – no matter what.
That team? The Pittsburgh Steelers.
Updated w/ more video on Odell Beckham Jr. saying ‘I’m not going anywhere’ — and the part #Browns fans will love: ‘I definitely for sure ain’t going to the #Steelers. That’s never going to happen’ https://t.co/mx5WCmDw9W

“I definitely for sure ain’t going to the Steelers,” he said.
“That’s never going to happen.”
While Beckham not openly petitioning to leave for a divisional rival is no doubt a small win for Cleveland fans, it still doesn’t change the other issues at hand.
The Browns need to get on the same page offensively – and quick. Because if Beckham is this frustrated and vocal about it in his first year with the organization, you can only imagine how bad things will get next season if things don’t improve.
