The 29-year-old will therefore receive $ 4 million of the $ 7.25 million provided for in his contract with the Cleveland Browns and will be able to choose his next destination. He had already indicated that he wanted to wear the uniform of a club that aspires to great honors.
Wearing the Browns uniform for three seasons, Beckham is no longer the shadow of the player he was with the New York Giants for the first five years of his career, in part due to injuries. In six games this season, he has only got his hands on 17 balls, for 232 yards, without being able to reach the opposing end zone.
However, it was videos posted by his father on social media, in which quarterback Baker Mayfield can be seen targeting other receivers while Beckham is free, that stoked the smut.
