Odell Beckham Jr. has contemplated leaving the New York Giants for the Cleveland Browns, according to close friend Jarvis Landry.
On Monday, the Brown’s wide receiver — who played alongside Odell at LSU — revealed to Cleveland.com that Beckham “definitely would be” up for reuniting with him through a trade to the Browns.
“If things like that are able to happen and the team can make it happen, then why not?” Landry said. “He definitely would be (up for it). He would be…We’ve had talks, but at the end of the day, I want him to be happy. I want him to get what he deserves and you can’t put nothing on that regardless of where it’s at.”
Coincidentally, the timing of Landry’s comments are in sync with Beckham’s ongoing contract negotiations with the Giants. According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Monday; “over the past several days, Odell Beckham Jr’s agent Zeke Sandhu & the #Giants engaged in good-faith negotiations on a deal that would make him the highest paid WR in the NFL, sources say.”
“They aren’t there yet, but the sides are encouraged a deal could be done before the season,” Rapoport tweeted.
