Reports: Browns, Odell Beckham Jr. negotiating terms of release

The Cleveland Browns and Odell Beckham Jr. have been negotiating terms of the wide receiver’s release, multiple media outlets reported.

ESPN reported Beckham could be released in the next few days after the Browns rework his contract to avoid a major salary cap hit.

Beckham, 29, was excused from practice for a second consecutive day Thursday. He was told not to attend Wednesday’s practice one day after his father posted an Instagram video showing quarterback Baker Mayfield either not throwing the ball to his son or missing him when he was open.

According to ESPN, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski addressed the team before Wednesday’s practice and informed players that Beckham would no longer be a Brown.

Both Stefanski and Mayfield said Wednesday that they had not heard from Beckham since his father’s posts went viral.

Beckham, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, finished with just one catch for six yards in Cleveland’s 15-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. He has 17 catches for 232 yards with no touchdown receptions in six games this season.

Beckham has 504 catches for 7,062 yards with 51 touchdowns in 88 career games with the New York Giants (2014-18) and Browns. He has caught seven touchdown passes in his 29 games with Cleveland.

Beckham is under contract for two more seasons, but has no guaranteed money left on his deal.
