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.”

  1. 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 a ridiculous $95M contract. Yet! You still managed to annoy management while staying out of The Media’s eye.

    Now! You are Cleveland’s problem for supposedly the next 5 years. I will bet anything that you will NOT last your new contract in Cleveland. Because! Your EGO will get the best of YOU and everyone around you. Remember! DIVA receivers are never winners. Look at Cris Carter, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Chad Ochostinko, Dez Bryant, Jarvis Landry and now YOURSELF OBJ. All of you have NO Super Bowl rings to talk about.

    For Dave Gettleman to clearly state, “NOW THE CULTURE HAS BEEN CHANGED” on the heels of your recent departure that speaks volumes with GMEN FANS. It seems yourself, Olivier Vernon, Landon Collins, Snacks Harrison and Eli Apple were all CANCERS in the GMEN family. Because! There has to be ONE common main reason to move on from that much talent in less then a calendar year. And contract situations are only a small part of it.

    I have a few parting words of advice for you Odell Beckham Jr. Now! You are on your 2nd team and counting. I think you should shut your mouth, keep your head down and work your tail off. All of your on-field and especially personal life drama is uncalled for, in any and all aspects of your life and the NFL. You should create a new inner circle for yourself with people you can truly TRUST. Because! When the dust settles and your career is over those people will be the only ones standing by your side.
