Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. sparked speculation with a coded tweet on Friday. There was much speculation in the comments that the Cleveland Browns star would talk about his future with the team.
“When you know… you just know,” Beckham wrote in a highly analyzed post that received more than 2,000 retweets and 12,000 likes within a few hours.
If you don’t know… If you don’t know…

Obviously, the vague six-word tweet could be about anything. But since Beckham’s future in Cleveland is an ongoing topic of conversation, the discussion was directed in that direction.
“Say goodbye to Browns fans” was one of the most requested comments.

Odell Beckham’s future in Cleveland at The Question.
Beckham spent less than two exceptional years in Cleveland, marked by injuries. He played most of his first season and is currently recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in October.
It’s Beckham’s price that makes it an interesting topic of conversation, especially if the Browns don’t get Pro Bowl-like production from the 28-year-old collared runner. He earns $15 million a year, plus salary, until he becomes a free agent in 2024.
Despite these concerns, the Browns insist that Beckham is an important part of their future.
“I’ve said it many times, Odell is a good soccer player,” Browns principal Andrew Berry told reporters last week. “He has integrated well into our program with Kevin and his teammates. Frankly, I just want to have as many good players on the roster as possible. He’s dynamic.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski has kept in touch with Beckham during his rehabilitation and is looking forward to his return to the Berea facility.
“I know he is working hard in his rehabilitation to get better. I’m glad he’s back,” Stefanski told reporters. “I know it wasn’t easy for him to be away from his teammates, especially when the games got bigger and he made the playoffs. I know he really wanted to be a part of it.

Beckham may have the reputation of being a diva outside the locker room, but inside he’s a great teammate. The latest proof came this week from Browns attacker Jack Conklin in an interview on the Pat McAfee Show.
“My locker was next to Odell (Beckham),” Mr. Conklin continued. “I talked to him about all kinds of things after practice. Whether we were upset about different things or not, we were able to put it all aside. I think that’s what makes a good team and what makes teams better and better when you have this open communication between the guys. You can get frustrated about something, but if you can get it off your chest and hear what the other person has on their side and why they think it’s going to work, that helps make things better.
Beckham responded to comments via Twitter.
