Jarvis Landry on Odell Beckham: He’s not trying to leave

When Odell Beckham‘s arrived in Cleveland this offseason, he was able to team up with his former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry in the Browns receiving corps.

The partnership hasn’t led to the kind of on-field success that the Browns hoped to have this season and the last week has featured plenty of discussion about whether the tandem might be splitting up after this year. Beckham wouldn’t discuss a report that he might be looking to move on after last Sunday’s game, but Landry said he doesn’t believe Beckham is looking for a way out of Cleveland.

“It’s not even about trying to go somewhere else,” Landry said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. “For him, he’s a guy that comes to work every day. He’s a guy that’s playing through injuries. All the things you want out of a player. . . .  He doesn’t want to leave and he’s not trying to leave.”

Beckham’s previous comments have been vaguer and another round of similar thoughts in the next few weeks won’t do much to quell speculation that another move could be coming in 2020.

  1. So, which is better…

    – Odell is happy and never did say “Come get me”

    – Odell wants out and is pleading with SF, NE, everyone but NYG to “Come get me, PLEASE!!”

    Well, the offseason is coming and we need something to obsess about, so…

  2. Ah, what part of “I want to be traded” do you not understand?

    I hope the Browns keep him, he’s cancer and I wouldn’t want him anywhere on my team even if is coming off the waiver wire much less giving something up for him is a trade. Let the Browns keep him, they aren’t going anywhere and keeping OBJ on the roster is just a way of guaranteeing that .

  3. Whoops, meant to say I haven’t seen someone try this hard at pushing such an obviously false narrative since the Russia hoax. If you’ve ever actually taken his words in context, you would know that pretty darn easily.

  4. he’s not *trying* to leave until he does.

    …where there’s smoke there’s fire.

  5. All this man wants is to shine. It’s funny how people throw dirt on his name just because he doesn’t do it the way your father told you it should be done. Guess what – your father never shined. I know this is going to set some brains on fire. Too bad.

  6. OBJ is happy where he is.
    He doesn’t want to leave.
    It’s all of you are making him leave.
    Just leave the poor fellah alone.

    😉

    Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. What a bunch of unlikeable whiners.
    I’d much rather root for guys like George Kittle than OBJ. (and I’m not a 49ers fan)

  7. It’s amazing people compare him to TO and AB. The worst he ever did was hit a kicking net because he’s competitor. Haters gonna hate.

  8. This is why as a Giants fan I am still giddy that they got a 1st round pick for him. How many articles have been posted over the last couple of months like this? Have there been any about what a great game he had? Anything about what a great teammate he is?

    Shine, really? Then how come every team he joins gets worse with him on it?

    There’s a big difference between shining and wanting the spotlight. Beckham, and you, can’t seem to tell the difference.

    It is amazing. TO & AB were winners, who do (TO) and likely will (AB) wear the gold HOF jackets.

    Beckham hasn’t even won a playoff game, let alone made a team better. He’s a drag.

    Average receiver at this point. Why is so much made about him?

    ________________________

    He caught a pass from Eli with one hand… not much after that.

  12. Hahahaha, Landry sounds like the Steelers talking about AB at this time last season.

    “Nah, he’s not trying to leave. He’s just super-competitive and frustrated.”

  13. 2 best teams in football . 49 & Ravens . how are they winning ? run the ball and stop the run. Diva WRs do not get you to the SB . OBJ worth is dropping by the day. not sure teams are lining up to trade for him.

  14. He has been playing injured all year so it’s hard to judge his time in Cleveland. Next year will give us a more clear picture.

  15. It is amazing. TO & AB were winners, who do (TO) and likely will (AB) wear the gold HOF jackets.

    Beckham hasn’t even won a playoff game, let alone made a team better. He’s a drag……..

    So by that logic Calvin Johnson is a drag and hasn’t made a team better… Larry Fitzgerald for the most part has been a disappointment and hasn’t made a team better. Julio Jones? DeAndre Hopkins? These guys have a combined 0 rings and not many more playoff wins than that. Your logic is flawed. Look at Emanuel Sanders this year.. went from nothing to stud in the same year by switching from a bad team to a good team. Receivers don’t make teams better. They are weapons for quarterbacks and can add another dimension to an offense. OBJ is averaging well over 1000 yards a season in his first 6 seasons. If that’s a drag please tell me who is doing so much better that they make him seem like a bad receiver. I’d love to learn something new.

  16. Cleveland here – WILL THE DRAMA NEVER END ! I’m beginning to think we should rename our team The Queens (as it drama queens). Everyday it seems like it’s one thing or another. (But I must admit Myles Garret ripped off his tiara and prom gown and went total “street” on that Pittsburgh QB).

    OBJ has been injured every year form his rookie year started off with hamsting and it just continues.. O SO FRAGILE is OBJ in mind and body..

  18. Next time I go out I’m gonna tell every woman I meet, I’d gladly go home with you, then tell my wife I’m not trying to leave her and see how that works.

  19. Who knows Beckham best Landry or the media? Jarvis Landry named Browns 2019 Walter Payton Man of the Year

    I think he wants to play for a good QB

  22. It’s okay OBJ. Everyone but Browns fans and Howard the Duck want to leave Cleveland too. I would worry if he WANTED to stay.
