Odell Beckham Jr. rejected speculation that he wants to leave the Cleveland Browns and join his friend Cam Newton in New England.
While a free agent earlier this month, Newton posted a short video on YouTube working alongside Beckham. After Newton signed an incentive-laden year-long deal worth up to $ 7.5 million with the Patriots on Sunday, many wondered if Beckham would try to team up with the former league MVP.
Comedian Bob Menery republished one of OBJ-Newton’s training videos and wrote, “@obj to New England? Hmmmm Welcome to New England Cam! #Do your work.”
Beckham replied, “Lol, no sir boss! But you have my brother, wishing for nothing but the best and LUV.”
Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood also chimed in, tweeting, ‘@obj the Patriots before the season ends. BANK IT!
However, Beckham stood firm and replied, “You can find me on The LAND homie! We have unfinished business. “
Beckham, 27, has been the subject of trade rumors since Cleveland went 6-10 last season despite high expectations. It was also a bad year for Beckham, who had just four touchdowns, his lowest total since missing most of 2017 due to a high ankle sprain.
In April, there were rumors that the Browns could send Beckham to the Vikings, although Cleveland called the rumor “completely false.”
Beckham told reporters in December: “I am not going anywhere.” I will be here. Let’s solve this. It’s too special to go. “
He has four years left on a five-year, $ 90 million contract ($ 40 million guaranteed) he signed with the Giants, who traded the Bowlers three times to the Browns in exchange for Jabrill Peppers, Kevin Zeitler and the Browns first. and third-round draft picks in March 2019.
The Patriots don’t have many talented wide receiver options for Newton, who was released by the Panthers this offseason after being plagued by injuries the past two seasons.
