Is he definitely worth the headache?
Odell Beckham Jr.’s fast and messy divorce from the Browns shall be finalized on Monday, as Cleveland is anticipated to waive the disgruntled receiver after restructuring his contract to facilitate the transfer.
Each team within the league can have the chance to select Beckham up on waivers, however they higher suppose twice earlier than submitting a declare.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Beckham “doesn’t wish to go to only any team.” He’s hoping to go to “a playoff contender and in a successful atmosphere, the place he believes he could be comfortable and productive.”
Honest sufficient. What participant doesn’t need an opportunity to win a Tremendous Bowl? However right here’s the place Schefter’s report will get attention-grabbing. He writes that Beckham is prepared to make life troublesome for his subsequent team if he finally ends up someplace he doesn’t wish to be.
“If a team that doesn’t match this standards claims Beckham and the $7.25 million remaining on his contract, there could be potential points for that team, in line with a supply, though it’s unclear precisely what these points could be,” Schefter wrote.
I believe the best way Beckham left New York and Cleveland makes it abundantly clear what these points could be. Schefter’s report reads like Beckham and his agent telling each cellar dweller pondering of submitting a waiver declare, “That’s a pleasant soccer team you’ve acquired there. It’d be a disgrace if one thing occurred to it.”
The probabilities Beckham would have been claimed on waivers have been slim to start with. After restructuring his contract to void the ultimate two years of the deal, Beckham is owed $7.5 million for the remainder of this season if he will get claimed on waivers. (If he goes unclaimed by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. waiver deadline, the Browns owe him $4.25 million.) Schefter reported on Friday that the steep price ticket meant it was unlikely Beckham could be claimed on waivers. So then why did Beckham’s camp even suppose it was essential to make the menace about “potential points”?
Professional Soccer Speak’s Mike Florio mentioned on NBC’s Soccer Night time in America that Beckham would prefer to go to the Seahawks however the 49ers and his hometown Saints are additionally contenders. From a pure leisure standpoint, Seattle looks as if an excellent vacation spot for him. Both Beckham pairs with stud receivers D.Okay. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett to kind a fearsome trio of wideouts, or he turns into Russell Wilson’s distant third possibility behind these guys and throws a tantrum over not getting the ball sufficient that fuels a number of extra weeks of a drama-filled information cycle.
