A trade between the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings involving Odell Beckham Jr. was rumored yesterday.
The elite NFL receiver reportedly was being shipped off to Minnesota in exchange for a second and fifth-round pick in next years draft. Peter King weighed-in on the talks, saying he had a hard time believing it would actually happen.
And now, Paul DePodesta, the Browns chief strategy officer, now is trying to shut those rumors down.
“In short, I will just say it was completely false,” DePodesta said, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
