Not Buying PR Smoke From Odell Beckham’s Camp

November 8th, 2021

Claims he wants to win.

What a bunch of rubbish!

Yesterday, Adam Schefter of BSPN was used/played by someone from unemployed wide receiver Odell Beckham’s camp. Schefter claimed the troubled former star, who some have linked to Tampa Bay, wants to play for a Super Bowl contender.

To quote the late, great Steve Duemig, “BULLS(P)IT!”

This freaking Beckham was on a Super Bowl contender. And he forced his way off. Don’t give Joe this nonsense he wants to play for a winner when he threw a hissy fit to worm off the Browns’ roster. Stop!

The only way Joe can see the Bucs signing Beckham’s eroding talent and head is if Antonio Brown’s ankle is much worse than initially feared.

Beckham will likely clear waivers today (if he is claimed whoever claims he will have to cough up $7.5 million). Apparently, the Seahawks are heavy-panting and we know Sean Payton and the slimy Saints tried to trade for him last week.

If Brown has a long-term injury, the Bucs will want a receiver who can take the top off a defense like Brown and Scotty Miller (turf toe) can.

In Joe’s eyes, a much cheaper, safer alternative would be to sign Breshad Perriman, who already knows this offense and shined with the Bucs in 2019, his best season as a pro).

And if Brown is down (who knows for sure about Miller), Perriman is the kind of guy that can get behind defenses with speed.

    I don’t see the Bucs signing either one of these guys. The reasons being:

    1) I don’t believe Antonio Brown is hurt that bad.

    2) The Bucs shouldn’t stunt Tyler Johnson’s growth. I think he’s better than both of the guys (who just got cut) at this stage of their careers. We know that Johnson won’t pout if he doesn’t get his looks, unlike OBJ.

    3) Scotty Miller is coming back.

  2. Bucsfanman Says:

    OBJ is garbage! He’s the ultimate “me-first” diva WR in the NFL. The production doesn’t match the mouth. No thanks, for me.

  3. dmat Says:

    Please, Please, James Brown Please, no “Ogail” Beckam! I wouldn’t want a guy such as he or in the future DJMetcalf, who’s also a me, me, me pouting big kid when things don’t go his way. Two players with too much diva n prima-donna personality n not enough “just do ur job” attitude.

    Good analysis Joe.

  5. Buc92’ Says:

    Joe must didn’t see the 11 minute cut up of Odell being wide ass open , & baker totally ignoring him. If someone is taking money out your pocket like that (baker) I’d wana leave the browns too… Odell handled himself well in Cleveland

    Joe didn’t want AB, now Joe will cry a river if he wasn’t here


  6. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    If all we want is someone to take the lid off the defense and we are considering malcontents let’s just bring back DJax. He’s a part of the FFRA too and without Jmiss throwing balls he might just find his magic again.

    Really please don’t.

    Wedint need OBJ but joe I’m not really feeling the hostility from whichever Joe that wrote this article. First of all the guy did not force his way off of a Superbowl contender.

    1) Mayfield is not a Superbowl QB
    2) the experiment was not a good match with OBJ and Baker
    3) We all know the when a receiver says he wants to be on a contender that really means he wants to be on a team with a great QB.

    The other thing Ty Johnson does that OBJ doesn’t is block, which is very important to Arains. This is Tyler’s chance step up, or Grayson, he looked good on that TD bomb. Screw those has beens, we’re set at receiver.

  10. Thisisouryear!! Says:

    What’s he going to cost per season? I don’t know if we can afford Godwin next year. Could he be a less expensive replacement?

  11. Alanbucsfan Says:

    The only way OBJ comes to Bucs is if Brady wants him and I doubt if that’s the case.

  12. Beeej Says:

    I’d put OBJ in the same group as Levion Bell–everyone assumes they’re good based upon past accomplishments

  13. Jerry Says:

    Not sure I’d consider the Browns a super bowl contender. A playoff team yes but I don’t think anyone right now is picking the Browns for the Super Bowl.

    I don’t think there is any mutual interest. We are also getting Scotty back soon. But again it all depends on how serious AB’s injury really is.

  14. mark2001 Says:

    This is,… the thing I like is that I think I see Licht using the same strategy many top teams that can draw upper echelon talent use. If we lose some guys in FA that become big money starters next year, we can get a handful of third and forth round compensatory picks, assuming we don’t sign many offsetting big money starters. And I think at WR particularly, we have guys in the wings waiting their chance. And with those “resources” we can move around to get the guys we really want in the draft.

  15. Joe in Michigan Says:

    I remember when the Patriots cut Albert Haynesworth and the Bucs signed him. The Patriots won all of their games without him, Tampa Bay lost all of their games with him. The Browns won in a rout yesterday. We’ll have to see if that continues.

  16. Chant Says:

    If they think he can help them win a Superbowl this year, I would go for it. Only half a year. He would be another mismatch and Brady knows how to use him. Probably gonna need him against packers, saints and rams. You can never have enough good/great players as injuries pop up, look at this year. This is a all the way type of year. Be a winner!

  17. Reach87 Says:

    A matter of degrees. All really good receivers act out to some degree when they are open and don’t get the throw…especially if in practice you were getting it and you think that’s the plan. Beckham has been wide open and missed alot this year but the degree to which he “pouts” about it is over the line, which signals a diva. Word is he practices hard, though. I think it’s clear that if he came to this team and pored to the same degree, he’d be gone. I’d wait for our DBs to get better and spend my coin on a LB with thumping ability.

  18. Listnfrmafar Says:

    HARD PASS unless AB out for the season.

  19. pepsi Says:

    Browns arent a contender Joe, theyre the Browns

  20. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Could it be that Baker Mayfield wasn’t throwing to OBJ because is catch percentage was 50% (34 targets, 17 catches)?
    I’m still waiting for an explanation from the pro-OBJ crowd of why you think he’s better than Tyler Johnson. He’s a “bigger name”? What does that matter?

  21. SlyPirate Says:

    The same “character issues,” “locker room cancer,” “washed up,” diatribe was spewed about AB.

    We all love AB now.

    The only issue with OBJ is we cannot afford him.

  22. Joe in Michigan Says:

    SlyPirate: You forgot the part about the Bucs current # 4 WR, Tyler Johnson, being better than OBJ.

  23. TOM Says:

    The only thing I can say is, whoever signs him will be sorry. Believe me it won’t be the Bucs. I’d much rather have Miller & Johnson.

  24. Ben green Says:

    They don’t need him. The problem is on defense. Brady has plenty of targets.

  25. David Says:

    Totally agree. There’s no way they should sign him. He does not have the attitude that Brown has become.
    OBJ is a locker room cancer. He forced himself off a team that many consider one of the top three rosters in the NFL.
    They do not need him. Miller is back, Johnson is pretty damn good, and Evans & Godwin are pro bowl talent.

  26. Mike Says:

    Buc92 is a total clown…..”wide open”

    Ha ha ha…..there is someone open on every play on every team. It depends on the play call and the progression. Secondly, he’s quickly avoiding the fact that Odell has the most drops of any receiver over last year and a half and he didn’t even play second half of last season.

    Wide open ……what a jackass

  27. Joe in Michigan Says:

    I don’t want to beat a dead horse, I think he’ll sign with the Seahawks, but a Cleveland reporter said in an article that the disconnect between Mayfield and OBJ could’ve been wrong routes being run by the WR.
