  • you're going to hear this repeatedly in Baker Mayfield first season in Cleveland Without Odell, he had a higher completion percentage.

  • Mawr yards per attempt.

  • What's more, this season is averaging nearly four more yards per attempt when targeting anyone other than Beckham.

  • I'm gonna get to that part of it in a minute.

  • But first, Marcus, this is a guy, you know, in L S U guy and and and I.

  • He's one of the most interesting people in the NFL.

  • So I guess I would ask you Where is he right now?

  • In your mind.

  • Where is Odell Beckham At this moment in his career as he faces the rest of this season, whatever the future is, he's getting the injury prone tag connected to his name at this point, G.

  • But not only that, like finding the landing spot now changes the picture because Odell Beckham is still a one still dynamic.

  • And for all intents and purposes, we all know guys can come back from a torn A, C, l and B as good as they were before.

  • But the thing now is when you bring Odell Beckham Jr in, there's a there's a sheet on him about injuries.

  • There's the opportunity for you to have to pay a guy a certain amount of money and him have him not being available for the rest of the way or when you need him.

  • And he's a dynamic playmaker.

  • We talked about that early in the season.

  • Cleveland was giving him opportunities to close out games by putting the ball in his hands.

  • So the bottom line is down.

  • Now you're approaching 30 you have an injury sheet and teams aren't gonna look at you the same as that young, dynamic receiver that can transcend some of the things that they are trying to do offensively, improvises and hangs his quarterback out to dry.

  • Do you realize that the Browns their identity is a ground and pound into the top three rush team in the entire NFL?

  • Their best personnel grouping is 13 personnel, three tight ends, and when Austin Hooper gets back and when Nick Job gets back, we're talking about a team that could be multiple with Bryants emerges and within joke, who who got a touchdown catch a beautiful touchdown catch the other day.

  • Like you could tell me all you want about Odell but the team is most efficient, with 13 personnel on the field, where they average 6.5 yard to play.

  • So I think that that will cause more problems than it does good in just a moment ago.

  • Just week three g back if swag that any here he's using it out there now was Run the ball.

  • Let me get swag.

  • You in here because he's pulling out the hair he no longer has.

  • Go ahead.

  • Swagger.

  • What has you so worked up?

  • It's unbelievable that we have in this conversation right now.

  • Two weeks ago, Odell Beckham Jr was back and him and Baker Mayfield were on the same page, and the Cleveland Browns was a true legit contender in their conference until they went to Pittsburgh and got beat to sleep.

  • Now I'm gonna ask any quarterback in the NFL.

  • Do you want O B J on your team, or do you not want him on your team when you have the opportunity to try to win the Super Bowl or get into the playoffs?

  • This is crazy to me.

  • I know we got numbers and analytics and Baker Mayfield looks for everybody when o B J is not on the field.

  • All of that is fine.

  • So nobody signed a number one receiver.

  • You know what?

  • Julio?

  • Leave Atlanta because Matt Ryan might be better without you because he'll see everybody else, Um d hop.

  • Leave Arizona Columbine because everybody else would wear we talking about.

  • We're talking about Oranges Baker talking about You have just finished talking about it.

  • Julio is not complaining about not getting touches.

  • Julio is not complaining every time.

  • He doesn't get thrown to Odell's.

  • Not either.

  • To be Allah and tell you what, Let's live here.

  • Let's just stay in this.

  • We're not going to get off it because it's a good topic and it's a bigger picture topic.

  • Let me get Graziano went on this because Jeff Saturday is basically saying half the league is high.

  • But the reality is I think there are more people who think the way Greg McElroy thinks than you might come away from this conversation, believing Where do you believe right now, the player and the team are relative to their future.

  • Long term, the team believes it has enough Thio operate its office.

  • It would rather have Odell Beckham.

  • There's no question about it, but they like Rashard Higgins and they feel like they can throw to the tight ends.

  • And when Nick Chubb gets back to Greg's point, they want to operate through the run game again.

  • Jeff Saturday.

  • They would rather have Odell Beckham on the team, but they don't right now, and they think they can make the most of what they have in his absence.

  • In terms of Odell long term, look, he's gonna be on the Browns in 2021.

  • His contract includes almost $13 million in fully guaranteed salary for next year.

  • I'm sorry, injury guaranteed salary for next year that becomes fully guaranteed in March.

  • There's no way he's gonna pass a physical by March for the tourney a C l.

  • So he's got that money coming to him next year from the Browns.

  • He doesn't turn 28 years old until next week.

  • I mean, do we forget how great a player this was like he was historically great his first three years in the league and the Browns think he can continue.

  • He could get back and be that again.

  • That's reasonable, but the most important word you just used is was So let me bring the group back in here.

  • I mean, that's really part of the question.

  • Here is Odell Beckham Still what he once was?

  • There's no doubt that he showed you early in his career that he was Marcus.

  • Why you shaking your head?

  • Is he definitely still that guy G?

  • He just showed us he this guy, what does does does this one week change?

  • I need everybody on this show tow.

  • Tell me, were we not two weeks ago talking about Odell Beckham Jr being back?

  • It may be spectacular plays in what felt like a very big win for Cleveland.

  • Right?

  • He made the one play where he on the end around where he made a bunch of people miss.

  • And we talked about how awful the Dallas defense was and everything else.

  • This is the play that I'm talking about right here.

  • This is the play that had us all on get up that week saying, Oh, look, Odell Beckham is back and they finally figured out how to use their favorite weapon.

  • But the reality is for whoever's fault.

  • It is Marcus.

  • It is reasonable to say Odell Beckham has not had anywhere near the impact in Cleveland over the year and a half that he's been there that I think we all expected him.

  • The half.

  • Marcus is that fair, and if so, why is it the case?

  • G is fair, and you know why?

  • Because the quarterback is not.

  • I keep telling you all this like so now this is the ever.

  • This is the ever revolving cycle.

  • All right, you go play against Pittsburgh, you put seven points on the game against good defense.

  • You play the Bengals, you throw five touchdowns and I don't want to shake a stick.

  • That's the NFL, but it's the Bengals, just like we just got done talking about the Chicago Bear with fools.

  • Goals wins, don't see who's Cincinnati and beat.

  • Go look at the two opponents.

  • They didn't play that that's in their division, that we consider Super Bowl contenders or deep playoff run teams.

  • And look at the score.

  • We don't whatever this we need.

  • All we gotta do is look at what's happening.

  • That's what's so great about our job.

  • We could look at the games and we could tell they did this, but this team suck and they did this and this team.

  • Good there.

  • There it is.
