Prior to the Cleveland Browns’ opening season loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, word got out that Odell Beckham Jr. would sit the contest because of his continuing rehab on his injured knee.
The Browns moved the ball pretty well without Beckhamr Jr., some of that being due to the Chiefs’ defense being its usual disappointing self, but most of it being because the Browns’ offense is well suited to function without Beckham Jr.
Before the game even began, though, Beckham Jr. went to Instagram and posted a cryptic message that might or might not have been tied to him being unavailable for the game.
He had this to say after it was announced he wouldn’t be playing in Game 2.
Around the time of Stefanski’s announcement, Beckham Jr. shared a video of himself driving, while listening to “7am on Bridle Path” — a song on Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” album.
He filmed a specific portion of the song, in which Drake raps about secrecy.
“I wish everyone could tell me exactly what they need from me / The first second they speak to me / I’m not with all the secrecy / Secretly beefin’ me behind closed doors But playin’ it peacefully for the streets to see My n—a, have some decency.”
