Saints Were Close to Trading for Odell Beckham Jr

In what was a quiet trade deadline in the NFL, Odell Beckham Jr. was one of the more well-known players constantly under trade rumors leading up till today, but of course, he is still with the Browns.

One team, however, did have interest in Beckham–the New Orleans Saints. According to ESPN’s Kimberley Martin, the Saints were in serious talks with the Cleveland Browns to acquire Beckham but were unable to come to an agreement which is reported to have been due to OBJ’s salary.

This comes as a surprise as Beckham has been underutilized after returning from injury and clearly didn’t want to be there. Despite OBJ’s protest, the Browns still believe Odell can make a big difference as they make a push to the playoffs.

The Browns are currently in last place in the AFC North with a 4-4 record. However, they’re still just one win back of the first-place Ravens, who sit at 5-2.
