Odell Beckham Jr. is not happy with his current situation and his time in Cleveland appears to have reached an impasse. Things have gotten so bad that he reportedly may as well not be with the team.

Moments after his father shared video on social media that trashed Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield on Monday, Beckham’s friend LeBron James tweeted “#FreeOBJ.” The comments came just two days after Beckham had his worst career game on Sunday.

On Wednesday, Beckham was told by the team not to attend practice as his agents and GM Andrew Berry discuss options. This comes after the Browns were open to trade calls for Beckham before Tuesday’s trade deadline.

No deals were reached.

In addition to Beckham’s absence from practice, head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Wednesday afternoon that he had not spoke to the wide receiver in 24 hours. In response to a question that asked if Cleveland is preparing to be without Beckham against Cincinnati on Sunday, Stefanski said: “I would just tell you today he is excused and we will see where this goes.”

Now, a new report is contradicting Stefanski’s public statement. Per Michael Silver, the head coach told his players that they may as well imagine Beckham is not on the team.

Silver did say that the drama between the Browns and Beckham is playing out behind the scenes. He reported that Beckham has handled the situation as best he can.

It will be interesting to see what comes of this feud.

As of right now, Beckham is under contract for two more seasons. However, he does not have any guaranteed money left on his deal.

Beckham will be due a $1 million roster bonus on the first day of training camp on the first day of the next two seasons, but that’s it. Meanwhile, Cleveland would save $15 million on their salary cap if it was to trade or release him during the offseason.
