Report: Odell Beckham Jr. wants a raise following trade to Cleveland

it did not take long after his trade to the Cleveland Browns for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to speak up about wanting a raise.

Apparently, the new deal Antonio Brown received from the Oakland Raiders following his trade from Pittsburgh is influencing OBJ’s thought process.

OBJ is already the highest-paid receiver in the league stemming from a deal he inked in 2018 that paid him an average of $18 million per year.

It would appear that he wants to even further distance himself from the wide receivers that rank below him, starting with Brown at $17 million per season.

The Browns gave up plenty to secure OBJ, so we will see if they are willing to open up their bankroll to fulfill his wishes.
