NFL Notes: Odell Beckham, Dwayne Haskins, Draft


Odell Beckham

Browns WR Odell Beckham let loose on social media during a Q&A about his departure from the Giants. 

“Ask any one of my teammates of who I was as a teammates and a man and a person,” Beckham wrote to a person calling him a cancer, via NFL Media’s Kevin Patra. “…yes I’m cancer to a place that’s ok wit losing because I want to win that BADDD. Ur absolutely correct!”

Beckham also took issue with Giants GM Dave Gettleman‘s comments. 

“‘We didn’t sign him to trade him…’ you don’t get married to get a divorce,” Beckham wrote. “… I tried my best, the situation I had been in since I got there never changed … we were still losing. PERIOD… money doesn’t bring happiness brotha… remember that.”

Dwayne Haskins

Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins mentioned that there are five teams that have expressed the most interest in him during the draft process. 

“A lot of teams,” Haskins said, via Pro Football Talk. “The Raiders, the Redskins, Broncos, Dolphins, and the Giants. Those are the teams who have shown the most interest in me.

Hasksin added that he wouldn’t be opposed to sitting for a year and learning behind a veteran quarterback. 

“Whatever team I go to I just have to be ready to play whether that’s year one or year two and I don’t have a preference whether that’s to play right away or play year two or year three,” Haskins said. “I just want to be the best quarterback I can be for that franchise. Patrick Mahomes definitely did a great job learning [behind Alex Smith]. I learned from J.T. [Barrett] my first year at Ohio State, so it isn’t foreign nature for me, so I’ll be comfortable with either/or.”

Hey Odell Beckham Jr.!!!!! You should REMEMBER the last words of your last sentence during your infantile rant. Beckham clearly states, “money doesn’t bring happiness brotha… remember that.” Well! Dave Gettleman traded you, so you can be happy with your college buddy Jarvis Landry and college position coach in Cleveland. Your problem Mr. Beckham is that you are unfortunately a team cancer in every negative sense of the word. Your OBJ persona does NOT appeal to anyone and it cost you your career in New York. The GMEN gave you every chance to get yourself together, including signing you to… Read more »
