Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter on Friday to quiet the firestorm that erupted after his vague remarks Thursday about whether or not he wants to be back with the Browns next season, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
“I NEVER said I was not happy in Cleveland, just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story plzz,” he said on Twitter.
But Beckham revealed on Thursday that he’s not certain he’ll be back next year or even that he’ll want to, and he acknowledged that he can’t endure another season like this, in which the Browns are underperforming and he’s not getting enough opportunities to help.
“No one knows what the future holds tomorrow,’’ Beckham said Thursday. “I couldn’t tell you what’s going to happen. My locker is right beside one of the men (Jarvis Landry) that means the most to me in the world. I think about just being able to come to work and see him every single day and how special this could be. I couldn’t sit here and tell you whether I’m going to be here, want to be here, don’t want to be here.
“This is exactly where I’m at now and I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else. God has a plan. In the offseason, everything will figure itself out. I feel like I’ve been here before, answering questions about the next team when I’m on a team already. That’s just something I’m going to tune out for right now. Catch me in the offseason and we’ll see what happens. I don’t know God’s plan.”
