1. Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr.

The Broncos game only provided more disappointments from Odell Beckham Jr. He dropped another pass and it turns out that chemistry problems aren’t exclusive to Baker.

Beckham also slipped on an out…it looked ugly because it would’ve have been a catch. The ball was so well placed, it still it Beckham on the shoulder, despite the misstep.

The fan base started riding Beckham after the drop–and then he got hurt on another pass he probably should’ve caught. He’s batting shoulder problems and landed hard on the fall. Now, both shoulders are bothering the one-time great.

In the end, he caught 2-of-6 targets and he becomes more irrelevant by the week. Perhaps they trade him, but since the front office won’t be able to get much in return, just giving him away may do more bad than good. Reports indicate he’s beloved in the locker room, so let him ride this season out.

For the season, Beckham’s pulled in 16 of 33 targets–meaning he’s caught 48 percent of the balls thrown his way–WOOF!

As for 2022, it’s simple: If it comes down to keeping Landry or Beckham, I’m taking Jarvis Landry all day, everyday over his former college teammate.

If Beckham is on the Browns in 2022, mark it down as a stunner. Also worth noting, Landry has more career yards (7,145) than Beckham (7,056).
