LeBron James is hopping on the bandwagon to get Odell Beckham Jr. out of Cleveland. 

James offered his reaction to an Instagram post from Odell Beckham Sr. that was shared on Tuesday morning. The post included a video from YouTube, which was 11 minutes long, blaming his son’s lack of production on Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. He captioned the post, ““Generally Behind Da Scene, BUT NOT TODAY.”……#imafatherbeforeanything #mytwin,” with several other hashtags and tagged the wide receiver. 

NFL TRADE DEADLINE TRACKER: Latest rumors, updates on Odell Beckham Jr. 

The video was shared just hours ahead of the NFL trade deadline, sparking several rumors about his future with the Browns. Beckham Sr. also responded to several comments affirming that his son was open during several of Mayfield’s failed attempts to make a completion. 

LeBron wasn’t the only one in the NBA to weigh in on Beckham Jr.’s troubles. Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard appeared in the comments, responding “This crazy…” to the video compilation. 

Beckham Jr. totals 17 receptions on 34 targets for 232 yards through six starts this season. He made his season debut in Week 3 for the Browns’ 26-6 victory over the Bears after recovering from an ACL injury that he suffered in 2020. Although he continues to struggle with injuries to his shoulder throughout the season, the Browns aren’t enthusiastic about parting with the 28-year-old wide receiver.

Despite not connecting with Beckham Jr., Mayfield consistently connects with tight end David Njoku. He currently leads the Browns with 20 receptions on 24 targets for 323 yards and a touchdown through all eight matchups this season. 

The Browns will go up against the Bengals on Sunday for their Week 9 matchup from FirstEnergy Stadium. As time winds down on the trade deadline, Beckham Jr. appears to be remaining in Cleveland and will likely be available to start.
