Myles Garrett tries to recruit Odell Beckham Jr. back to the Browns

Last year, receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wanted out of Cleveland. This year, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett wants Beckham to come back.

Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Garrett has launched an effort to get OBJ to return to the Browns. Garrett posted recently on Instagram the following message: “Come Home The Fellas Miss You.”

The gesture underscores the reality that Beckham’s teammates love him. That became obvious earlier this week, based on comments from Browns linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koromoah and Browns cornerback Greg Newsome on the Varsity House podcast.

Beckham’s teammates have a fondness for him, wherever he plays. And when Cleveland wasn’t big enough for OBJ and Baker Mayfield, the Browns players sided largely if not entirely with Beckham.

Now that Mayfield is on the way out, why not bring Beckham back? At a time when the team is taking repeated body blows for its decision to go all in for Deshaun Watson, it wouldn’t hurt to make the locker room a little happier by bringing back Beckham.

  1. I am pretty sure winning a superbowl beats anything Cleveland has to offer today.
    Maybe Beckham should be helping Garrett force his way out. Honestly I don’t know why the advertisers have not parted ways with the Browns yet.

  2. Who wants to play in those horrid uinforms, for a horrid fan base that always eats their own, and with no other than Baker Mayfield…most probably starting the season as Watson is sitting home?
    Another grease fire on the cuyahoga ready to ignite. .

  3. Getting AD back for at least one more season is more important than signing OBJ for the Rams. So with mayfield on his way out and even with Watson potentially suspended for a few games it’s really not a bad idea for him to go back to Cleveland. They have a strong roster and with Watson could make a run at the super bowl. Maybe they’ll play the rams in the super bowl…

  4. Whenever someone says the Browns have a stacked roster, you have to remind yourself that some of the players they are talking about being so talented are merely overpaid busts like Amari Cooper, David Njoku, and Jadeveon Clowney. Sure they have a decent defense and a good running game, but so do the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately for the Browns, they don’t get to play in the AFC South.

  5. I don’t think Beckham was ever happy in Cleveland. I don’t think he’s rushing back there.

  6. Garrett should worry about being available all 17 games and performing. Garrett should worry about not going off his rocker and hitting opponents with their own helmets. Garrett should stop playing GM and stop talking. Do your job.
