Yes, that would be a Cleveland Browns logo printed on the football being clutched by the 25-five-year old superstar. With the Los Angeles Rams acquiring New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks on Tuesday, the Browns appear to be the frontrunner to strike a deal with Dave Gettleman and company for Beckham Jr.
A potential swap of the first and second picks has been rumored as well as Cleveland maybe parting ways with the fourth pick overall. With not many suitors able to offer the assets required to obtain Odell while also paying him his desired contract, Cleveland and John Dorsey seem to be in the perfect position.
