Skip Bayless says Odell Beckham Jr. wants to play with Aaron Rodgers on the Packers
Skip Bayless says Odell Beckham has privately suggested he’d like to play in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers.
OBJ did just sign a huge extension and the Browns just traded for him, but it would cost CLE less than $3M in dead cap to deal him again.
Contract isn’t onerous for GB

It wouldn’t take a whole lot of dead cap money to trade Beckham for the Browns this offseason and it would make a lot of sense if the Browns decide they don’t want the headache surrounding Beckham anymore.
This report comes a few days after Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that Beckham has been going up to opposing coaches before games and telling them to “come get me, come get me.”

Glazer also mentioned he doesn’t think the relationship between the Browns and Beckham will end well. Glazer is pretty well in tune with Beckham and he was the first one to suggest that he might be traded from the New York Giants.
If the Browns do decide to trade Beckham, it would make a lot of sense that he would want to go to play for the Packers.
Since coming into the league, Beckham hasn’t had an elite quarterback. He started with Eli Manning who was past his prime and struggling. The hope with going to Cleveland was that he would become a true number one for Baker Mayfield, who had a solid rookie season.
Instead, Mayfield and Beckham have had issues getting on the same page and he only has two touchdown receptions.
Getting Rodgers to throw the ball to him would no doubt help his numbers and he would be another big-time receiver for the future Hall of Fame quarterback.
