Odell Beckham has torn ACL

The news on Browns receiver Odell Beckham‘s knee injury is as bad as feared.

Beckham told Josina Anderson that his ACL is torn and his season is over.

That’s a devastating injury for Beckham, who will now begin a long process of rehabilitating and hoping he can be back on the field when the 2021 NFL season starts.

It’s also a major disappointment for the Browns, who thought when they traded for Beckham last year that they were getting the best wide receiver in football, but have so far seen him fall short of expectations and now are seeing him deal with a major injury.

At 5-2 the Browns are in very good shape to compete for a playoff berth, but losing Beckham hurts.

  1. Not worth 14+ million per year. Trade him in the off-season.
    Name the last top-5 receiver who won the superbowl. That’s what we thought

  2. Baker looked more comfortable with Beckham out of the game. I understand Beckham is an incredible talent, but he doesn’t seem to have the best chemistry with Baker. I’m looking forward to more reps for Higgins and Peoples-Jones and hopefully better chemistry throughout the offense.

  3. I wish Odell nothing but the best, but we play better without him. With that being said, I hope he ends up on a team where he can shine.

  4. Beckham has been more of a negative distraction than a play-maker for the Browns.

  5. Browns fans saying they play better without OBJ are delusional. He opens up the offense for everyone. Please show the man some respect, whether you like him or dislike him (usually the reason why makes no sense). Hope he gets well soon.

  6. Odell is definitely a goofball, but not a bad person. He should have kept quiet and stayed in New York. But that’s all hindsight now. I hope he saved his money.

  7. I would consider Tyreek Hill a top 5 WR, he won a SB.

    But I’d take DK, Hopkins, and Thomas over him. After that you could probably argue the next 4-5 guys. Hill, Allen, Woods, Diggs.

  8. Well, now he’s free. Albeit nine months later than he wanted to be.
    They wont keep him, at that cost coming back from ACL, he wasn’t that much a part of the offense anyways. They can win without him as evidenced from yesterdays win.
    He never got the right team for his skills.

  9. I think his days in cleveland are officially over. I’m interested to see if baker continues to improve when OBJ is off the field. This might not be as bad as it initially seems.

  10. Betting that’s his last game as a Brown. He will get a one year “prove myself” contract and we will see if he recovers from this injury and hasn’t lost a step.

  11. OBJ is an incredible athlete, but only a good WR. He made a ton of money off of 1 incredible catch. I never thought of him as a top 15 wr.

  12. OBJ is all about legacy. Well, his Browns’ legacy is never being on the same page and getting hurt on that very sort of play. If he wouldn’t have wasted so much time on league banned visors & watches and other crap I’d almost feel sorry for him.

    I know we live in the moment, but in no world is DK better than OBJ.

  14. I really can’t say that this hurts the Browns. He may have been drawing coverage, but as a receiver, he had not been doing a whole lot. This team needs to trust the run and stop turning the ball over.

    ==================

    1) They played much better without him yesterday.
    2) What has he done to merit respect? Never elevated his team to greatness, never won a playoff game (and only made it to one of them), never made the difference when it counted, has been an unhelpful distraction for his teams on an off the field (including those ridiculous in-game uniform violations last season), got banned from LSU for two years for his self-centered stunt after their championship win. The evidence is clear that he’s me-first, and hasn’t been a good return on any investment made in him to date. It takes more than ability to earn respect.
    3) I also hope he gets well soon and recovers fully.

  16. He has a $14 million dollar guaranteed contract next year. You can’t trade him because nobody is going to take on that contract and they have to pay him no matter what so he’s not going anywhere unless the Browns are willing to pick up a large portion of his contract just to move him.

  17. Never want to see anyone get hurt. Even if they are a spoiled brat with serious ego problems. Browns will be better without him though. Just watch.

  18. OBJ us a tremendous receiver. However-and this is Baker Mayfield’s fault-he always looks at Beckham first and holds the ball too long to try to get it to him.

    When Mayfield has no truly number one receiver he seems to play better. Just an observation.

    In another system with a different quarterback i believe OBJ will be outstanding.

  19. Browns will be a better team Odell was not a team player it was all about me, he was good but his distraction was not so good.

  20. It seemed that whenever OBJ was in the game that Baker would always look to him first no matter what or subconsciously think I have to get the ball to OBJ. Sorry that he is out, but I think that Baker will now have more freedom in his head to go with whoever is open.

  21. He wasn’t the “best wide receiver in football” when they traded for him.
    He was a product of one great catch & the hype of playing in New York. Oh, and his own self-created drama.

  22. get well odell. also how quickly those who are saying hes not good forget just how outstanding he can be. for a reminder go back and watch the cle vs dal earlier this season. dude can really ball out when situations right.

  23. Leveon Bell out. Odell B out. Antonio Brown a walking disaster. Yet teams still sign these loud mouth primadonnas.
