Rapoport explains that the new Browns regime would like for Beckham to show some level of engagement in the offseason including a larger presence in OTAs and conditioning, as they try to learn a new offense.
According to Rapoport, Beckham is likely to remain in Cleveland for at least one more year if he’s willing to do as much.
Beckham’s first year in Cleveland did not go as many assumed, but the Browns have responded by making sweeping changes to the organization in an attempt to get the team back on track.
A few weeks ago, Beckham underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury he battled throughout 2019. He dealt with the injury since training camp, but did not miss a game in 2019.
Beckham, 27, was taken with the No. 12 overall pick by the Giants back in 2014. He was set to make a base salary of $8,459,000 for the 2018 season when he agreed to a new five-year extension worth up to $95 million and includes $65 million in total guarantees.
The Giants traded Beckham to the Browns this offseason for the No. 17 overall pick, their second third-round pick and S Jabrill Peppers.
Beckham stands to make base salaries of $16.75 million and $14 million over the next two years.
In 2019, Beckham appeared in 16 games for the Browns and caught 74 passes for 1,035 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
