Odell Beckham Jr warms up

One item in Odell Beckham Jr.’s contract settlement with the Cleveland Browns shows just how badly he wanted to leave the team.

As part of his agreement with the Browns, Beckham agreed not to seek termination pay from the team. That means the wide receiver is giving up guaranteed money to leave Cleveland.

Players very rarely want to give up guaranteed money in the NFL. That Beckham is doing so speaks to his obvious desperation to get out of Cleveland. Given how quickly this developed, one has to wonder how long Beckham has wanted out in the first place.

The Browns also went out of their way to make sure Beckham would be a free agent after the season, and also made it unlikely he will be claimed on waivers. That means he can pick his landing spot, so there was some mutual benefit to this.
