Davante Adams’ 6-word recruiting message to Odell Beckham Jr. on Instagram
Heading into 2019, everything was supposed to be great for the Cleveland Browns. A couple of months later, everything seems to be crashing down. The Browns are just outside of the AFC playoff picture, and one of their prized offseason acquisitions is reportedly looking for a way out. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has apparently been looking for a way out since October, and one suitor has come calling.
Well, maybe not a serious suitor. But Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams doing some recruiting is a telling sign. Beckham clearly isn’t happy in Cleveland, and teams believe he could be on the move. The Packers are probably not a realistic landing spot, but there are plenty of places that are.

If Browns general manager John Dorsey does indeed ship Beckham off, the Browns organization as a whole takes a hit. It would show the inability of a coaching staff to incorporate one of the best receivers in the NFL in the offense. The trade that brought Beckham to Cleveland would be considered a loss for the Browns. Sending Beckham away after just one season would be the most Browns-like mistake ever, and would affect Cleveland for years down the line.
The thought of Aaron Rodgers throwing the ball to Beckham Jr. is fascinating to think about, even if it’s unrealistic to happen.
