Odell Beckham Jr., the father of Cleveland wide receiver Odell Beckham posted a video to social media Tuesday morning highlighting instances when Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield did not throw the ball to Beckham even though he was open.
Odell Beckham Sr. responded by adding three green check marks to the comment section. He said Mayfield was either hating Odell or just not wanting him shining.
Beckham Jr. only caught one pass for 6 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mayfield was again targeted by OBJ late in the game. Beckham Jr. however, went up for the ball using only one arm and didn't make the catch.
In recent weeks, Cleveland's passing game has been struggling. The Browns are now 4-4. Mayfield is 26th in QBR (43.0), and only six touchdown passes. Beckham is 151st among the league's receivers per target, and 139th among receptions per route. Both Beckham and Jones have both suffered shoulder injuries during this season.
According to ESPN's DiannaRussini, a source said that Beckham is not being traded by the Browns before Tuesday's deadline. She also noted that they have yet to receive offers that would make sense.
Beckham has two more seasons remaining on his contract, but he does not have any guaranteed money. Each of his two remaining seasons are subject to a $1 million roster incentive. This bonus is due on the first day in training camp. If they trade or let go of him, the Browns could save $15 million on their salary cap.
