Jarvis Landry says his best friend Odell Beckham is NOT trying to bolt from the Browns, despite reports to the contrary … telling reporters, “He’s not trying to leave.”
There are multiple reports claiming Odell told opposing players and coaches to “come get me” out of Cleveland … essentially letting people know he’s unhappy with the Browns and wants to get out.
Of course, Beckham didn’t choose to play for Cleveland in the first place — he was traded there by the Giants earlier this year.
Additionally, Beckham expressed frustrations with the Browns training staff — suggesting they didn’t not properly handle the sports hernia injury he suffered in training camp.
But Landy — who’s been super tight with Beckham since high school — came out strong to reporters today, saying the superstar WR is not trying to jump ship.
“He doesn’t want to leave and he’s not trying to leave,” Landry said moments ago.
“It’s not even about trying to go somewhere else,” Landry added … noting that Beckham’s been a solid teammate and consumate pro during his run in Cleveland.
For his part, Odell has tweeted about the reports saying, “I NEVER said I was not happy in Cleveland, just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story plzz.”
So … still think Odell suits up in a Browns uni next season?
