Odell Beckham Jr. may have admitted he was unsure of what the future holds, but the Browns receiver insisted that did not equate to unhappiness in Cleveland.
Beckham was traded to the Browns by the Giants in the offseason but the three-time Pro Bowler has failed to live up to the hype. He has caught just two touchdowns in 2019 and has gone six games without passing 100 yards receiving, a milestone he has only surpassed twice in 12 games.
With the Browns 5-7 and facing an uphill battle to make the postseason, Beckham was noncommittal when asked about his future on Thursday.

“What’s the future hold? I don’t know, I don’t know the answers for that,” he said at a news conference. “Right now, I’m just taking it a day at a time, trying to finish healthy, trying to win these last four games and see what happens.”
Beckham addressed the fallout from those comments on Friday, though he did not clarify if he wanted to remain a Brown beyond this season, with his contract in Cleveland running until 2023.
“Ok… I NEVER said I was not happy in Cleveland, just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story plzz,” he wrote on Twitter.
