Before the season began, the expectations quickly skyrocketed for the Browns when they acquired Beckham Jr. However, nine weeks into the season, Cleveland owns a 2-6 record and the All-Pro wide receiver’s role in the offense is in question.
This season, Beckham Jr. has totaled 39 receptions, 575 yards, and just one touchdown in eight games. Therefore, he is on pace to have 78 receptions for 1,150 yards and a career-low two touchdowns in 2019.
Without a doubt, the pairing of OBJ with Baker Mayfield hasn’t gone according to plan. In addition, Freddie Kitchens seems to be a bit over his head with the playcalling this season. When you are unable to get Beckham Jr. involved, there’s something wrong with your gameplan.
Due to the underwhelming results in Cleveland, no one would be surprised to see Beckham Jr. request a trade. The Packers are a team that could definitely inquire about the electric wide receiver.
Currently, Green Bay is desperate for a consistent option at wide receiver alongside Davante Adams. Many have speculated that the New England Patriots could become suitors for him. But a duo of Aaron Rodgers and Beckham Jr. would be just as lethal as Tom Brady and Odell Beckham.
In the event that the Packers are able to acquire Odell Beckham, they would easily become the favorites in the NFC in 2020.
