Colin Cowherd: “I have 3 different sources telling me that Odell Beckham Jr. to the Vikings is not currently on the table." (Full Video Above)
Despite Wednesday reports that rumored the Minnesota Vikings to be heavily pursing Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Colin Cowherd says his sources are telling him that there is ‘currently no offer on the table.’
There was wide speculation that the Vikings were in on Beckham to replace departed former no. 1 WR Stefon Diggs, in a deal that was rumored to have Minnesota giving a second and fifth round pick to Cleveland for OBJ’s services.
Not only does Beckham have links to Minnesota, as his mom grew up there, but there seemed to be an impending blockbuster trade on the horizon with Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer also coincidentally teasing breaking NFL news that he would later release that night.
Check out the video above as Colin believes the deal with Minnesota is off, but says his sources are also telling him that Beckham legitimately wants out of Cleveland and has made that clear.
The three-time Pro Bowler was at one time considered arguably the best wide receiver in football, but is coming off a season in which he only totaled 1,035 receiving yards in 16 games, with just 4 touchdowns. Both career lows per-game.
