Browns QB Baker Mayfield said that WR Odell Beckham Jris frustrated when he is not getting the ball and we are losing.”

However, Beckham later explained that he’s not advocating “just giving me the ball to appease me or anything like that” and he just wants to help alleviate some pressure on his quarterback. 

“Take something off his plate,” Beckham said, via “I’m more than happy to take something off his plate and put it on me. I can take it. I can handle all this stuff, so just put it on me and see what happens. . . . I care for this game period, so whether I’m emotional during the game or whatever, it’s because I care, so like I say, I’m a big boy. I can handle any criticism, any words that are said about me, anything. I’ll take more on my plate, I’ll take that responsibility 10 times out of 10.”
