Report: Odell Beckham Jr ‘not afraid’ of return to New York

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

As receiver Odell Beckham Jr’s long-term future with the Cleveland Browns emerges as an offseason storyline, the 27-year-old could reportedly at least be open to a return to the city where his career began.

According to SportsNet New York’s Ralph Vacchiano, Beckham Jr. isn’t afraid of a return to New York, specifically the Jets, despite the drama that surrounded his career with the New York Giants.

Beckham Jr. spent the first five seasons of his NFL career in New York with the Giants. While he attracted plenty of attention and some drama, he also earned All-Pro honors twice and was a three-time Pro Bowl receiver.

He reportedly wants out of Cleveland, even expressing it to opponents during the season, following a disastrous first year with the Browns. While the front office might try to stand firm and keep him early in the offseason, it may not take long for the star receiver to get his way and receive a change of scenery this offseason.
