After his calmest game of the season, Odell Beckham Jr. receives support from another star who knows a bit about playing in Cleveland: LeBron James.

Beckham Jr. recorded just one reception for six yards on his lone target on Sunday in a 15-10 home loss to the Steelers. OBJ has 17 catches for 232 yards and no touchdowns this season, and he has two catches or fewer in four of six games.

The recent streak continues what has been a tough time for Beckham Jr. since arriving in Cleveland in 2019. He scored over 1,000 yards in his first year with the Browns, but got off to a slow start in 2020 before moving on. suffer an ACL tear in late October. . He missed the first two games of this season before coming back in week 3.

James has supported Beckham Jr. for several years, dating back to the days of the wide receiver with the New York Giants.

It’s unclear what James meant – and what the Browns might do – to actually #FreeOBJ. Cleveland is unlikely to trade its disgruntled wide receiver before the 4 p.m. ET trade deadline on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Beckham Jr. is under contract until 2023, although the contract does not have guaranteed money in 2022 or 2023, according to Over The Cap.

It was an eventful Tuesday for the team, to say the least. Beckham Jr.’s father, Odell Sr., posted a heartbreaking Instagram video on Browns QB Baker Mayfield for not finding Beckham Jr. when he is open.

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski also touched on Beckham Jr.’s struggles, saying: “I would tell you first and foremost that I have to do a better job. I really do it. I have to make sure I do. Put him in a position to play a few games, and I haven’t done a good enough job. “
