Odell Beckham Jr. resists calls to join Cam Newton on Patriots, has 'unfinished business' with Browns

Yahoo Sports

Wherever Odell Beckham Jr. goes, trade speculation seems to follow.

This time, the people are wondering if the Cleveland Browns wide receiver will ask for a trade to the New England Patriots to join his good friend Cam Newton, who signed with the Pats on Sunday. A comedian named Bob Menery tweeted at Beckham on Monday about that very thing, but Beckham shot it down quickly.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood made a prediction that Beckham would be traded to the Pats before the season ended, which Beckham swatted away by proclaiming his dedication to Cleveland.

Beckham’s words probably give Browns fans some comfort, but it wasn’t crazy to wonder if he’d want to join Newton in New England. OBJ and Cam aren’t just good friends, they’re also training partners. Just two days ago, Beckham posted a video of the two of them working out (and spraying sweat onto the camera).

And he posted one two weeks before that.

There was a slim possibility that the two of them could have been on the same team in the upcoming season. Adam Schefter said on his podcast Monday that the Browns were the only other team that even spoke to Newton about a contract this offseason, but that conversation didn’t amount to anything.

Despite the trade speculation that never seems to end, Beckham said he’s committed to finishing his business with the Browns. Considering that the Browns finished 6-10 last season after a promising start, and Beckham had a pretty down year as well, there’s more than enough business for OBJ to start finishing.
