Odell Beckham Jr. is free agent after clearing waivers for Cleveland Browns

Adam Schefter said he could possibly see Odell Beckham Jr. in a few days before signing with a team. (1:33).
Odell Beckham Jr., a former wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, cleared waivers Tuesday. He is now eligible to sign as a free agent with any team.

Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Beckham would like to spend the remainder of the season with a playoff candidate and in a winning environment.

Sources told ESPN that Beckham is being considered by multiple teams with proven offenses and winning records. Sources say that Beckham has already been approached by certain players to pitch the merits of their team.

Beckham was expelled by the Browns from practice last week as negotiations continued between the sides. This was completed Friday. Beckham was released officially Monday. Beckham could be taken by any of the 31 other teams but no one wanted to file a waiver claim or pick up his $7.25m renegotiated contract by Tuesday's deadline at 4 p.m.

Beckham must be paid $4.25 million by Cleveland, but Cleveland will save $3 million

Beckham, 29 years old, had 17 catches for 231 yards and zero touchdowns this season. After joining Cleveland in the blockbuster 2019 trade with New York Giants, Beckham had only two 100 yard games in his 29 games.

He requested to be traded but never had an on-field relationship with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. Beckham was effectively forced to be released last week by his father sharing an 11-minute video via social media of plays in the which Mayfield failed to pass the ball. This was hours before the trade deadline.

Three-time Pro Bowler, he had 1,035 receiving yards his first season with Cleveland. However, a season-ending knee injury ended his season in 2020. He was out when the Browns won their first playoff game since 26 years.
