The Browns did not officially place Odell Beckham on waivers Friday and they reportedly won’t do it on Saturday either.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Beckham will be waived on Monday after the two sides reached an agreement on a reworked contract. That means Tuesday is the earliest that Beckham could be claimed by a new team or become a free agent.

Per the report, any team that claims Beckham would be responsible for $7.25 million of his remaining salary. That would be a stretch for a number of teams around the league and Schefter also reports that the final two years of Beckham’s deal have been removed, so he’d be set for free agency at the end of the season.

The NFLPA needs to sign off on the reworked contract. Assuming they do, the next steps in the Beckham story will play out early next week.

  1. They don’t want him to suit up against them Sunday

    I hope the Raiders don’t sign this guy.

    He’ll be our next crises on TMZ if they do.

    Mayock needs to stock pile good character guys and not clowns like OBJ.

  2. I think OBJ will have a Randy Moss Patriots like career resurrection if he lands with the right team.

  3. There are very few teams that have the team and QB stability to deal with this guy. The list is the Bucs, Chiefs, Packers and maybe the Rams. The Packers and Chiefs are probably the only teams of that group that have enough targets to go to him. All the other teams like the Raiders or Saints only have one of the two forms of stability. If you think he won’t call out Carr or Siemian then you are off your rocker.

  4. Only 10 teams have the current Cap Space available. They are: Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Steelers, WFT, Panthers, Seahawks, Broncos, Eagles and Jags. If any of the other 22 teams want to try and claim him, look to see what moves they make to free up Cap Space in the next few days.

    My guess; he clears waivers. Unless someone wants to pick him up to get a future compensation pick down the road when he doesn’t sign a new contract with the team getting him off the waiver wire.

  5. Michael Thomas is at least out of the saints locker room for the season and hopefully for good,please don’t get another form of cancer in there witb this malcontent.

  6. Essentially, I agree with CHAWK above..comes down to who wants to buy a compensatory pick for 7.25 million. Frankly, I hope he gets ‘Kaepernicked’

  7. Oh Obj…..you LEFT ALOT OF $$$$ on the table. These guys have no idea what the real world is like.

  8. The Lions have the #1 Waiver, in need of a WR in the worse way, and cut Tyrell Williams today. I understand the hate about to come my way, but why not do it?

  9. So basically, he has a great highlight reel catch and a couple of 1000 + yard seasons, 5 years ago. What else has he done that is so special?

    OBJ had issues with Eli Manning before he got traded to the Browns. He now has issues with Baker and the Browns & will be waived. That’s not a great track record by any means. He has never been a team first guy like some of the greats, so comparing him to the greats is a mistake..

    I think it needs to be a team that has a proven QB/Coach combination and they need to sit him if he does not follow TEAM rules.

    Anyway, I hope he goes to the bottom feeder teams.

  11. No team will bite on the 7 plus million. He will clear waivers and sign a team friendly deal with the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick for the rest of the year.

  12. This guy is a one hit (catch) wonder.

    I remember when he burst onto the NFL scene. My friend and I were discussing his career path. I made my case this guy would flame out rather than be a stud

  13. This will be hilarious. Good teams would like him on the team, but don’t want the nonsense that comes with him. The teams that really want him would be a step down from the Browns. I could totally see him popping up on the Jets or Lions. He’ll get paid, but eventually it will sink in that he should of in Cleveland and should of acted like a professional. It should be fun to watch T.O. 2.0 self destruct either way.

  14. Raiders stay away from this guy and Jackson too. They are bad fits for the types of team players on the roster. Carr spreads the ball out to 6-8 receivers every game, OBJ will be upset that he isn’t getting the ball enough.

  15. He essentially was made a 1 year rental for only a few teams in the league…

    Or he becomes a free age t for everyone. I’d be surprised as to what contract he would sign if that happens
