NFL Rumors: Odell Beckham Jr. Reportedly Sees Jets As 'Ideal Landing Spot' If Browns Trade Him

After a disappointing 2019 campaign that saw his stats decline as the Cleveland Browns yet again missed the playoffs, rumors are once again suggesting that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may soon be on the move.

In a report from Sports Illustrated published on Wednesday, the New York Jets could be a potential trade destination for Beckham, who played the first five seasons of his NFL career for the league's other New York team, the Giants. According to a source who spoke to the publication's Kristian Dyer, the 27-year-old wideout sees the Jets as an "ideal landing spot" in the event Cleveland decides to move on from him after just one season. However, the report also stressed that Beckham, per the anonymous source, is not actively asking for a trade but simply opening the door for a possible return to New York.

According to his Pro Football Reference page, Beckham mostly had strong numbers in 16 games with the Browns last season, catching 74 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. However, these stats were slightly lower than the ones he posted in his last season with the Giants. With quarterback Baker Mayfield's struggles also taken into account, Cleveland failed to live up to expectations in the 2019 season, finishing with a 6-10 record, as noted by Bleacher Report.

"I'm not going anywhere. I'll be here. We'll figure this thing out. It's just too special to leave. It's done. Just put it to bed. I'm going to be here. There's nothing more to talk about."
