Odell Beckham Jr. loathes Cleveland?
Blog King, Mass Appeal
CLEVELAND — Homesick already? Odell Beckham Jr. despises Cleveland and he prefers to play football in Los Angeles, this according to Fox Sports analyst Colin Cowherd who labeled the Browns a “dumpster fire” during a Twitter pontification on Friday. Cowherd also called Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield a “baby.” Beckham was acquired in March via trade from the New York Giants in exchange for safety Jabrill Peppers and two high draft picks.
Cowherd may have a point.
After all, it took nearly a month for Beckham to appear at his introductory news conference in Cleveland and he didn’t look particularly beatific to be there. You can already tell he misses the New York spotlight. Hell, there’s practically no media coverage in Ohio.
“Nobody will be honest about this Cleveland thing,” Cowherd tweeted.
“It has a chance to be a complete and utter dumpster fire… Odell [Beckham] didn’t want to go here, the owner is a control freak, John Dorsey is a control freak, Freddie Kitchens could be over his head, and I’m not even mentioning Baker (Mayfield), who’s just a kid, a baby.”

“Nobody will just say the truth,” Cowherd continued. “Odell Beckham’s not happy. He’s not happy. Look at him! Does he look happy? This thing has a chance to be an absolute mess. Freddie Kitchens, with these egos and these stars? I can tell you I have this as well sourced as I can have it on Odell Beckham. He didn’t want to go to Cleveland! He wanted to go to LA….”
“Now… he’ll make it work, but this was not his choice.”
Mayfield took offense to Cowherd’s claim, calling it complete “bullshit” before daring the 55-year-old commentator to visit the Dawg Pound. “Come to Cleveland and ask O if he actually likes it,” Mayfield tweeted. “Just because you say you have a source doesn’t mean you’re not full of BS.”
“And while you’re at it… come see if I’m a baby…”
Damn, that sounds like a threat.
Nevertheless, do you agree with Cowherd?
Are the Browns a trainwreck waiting to happen?
