"Kitchens seems to believe that the former Giants superstar is not mentally ready to consistently take the field with his new team."

Thats a really strange quote by the head coach. ...He doesnt have to be here but his mind should be here...

I think he's trying to dance around saying he should be at OTAs, since he's not allowed to say so explicitly.

Beckham is sure doing his part to explain the Giants side of the trade.

Maybe they should move the OTA's to a boat in Miami?

yes , according to this. If I were a new head coach, Id probably want to keep things in house for a while. We all know that between the sidelines on Sunday, he performs.

I think the trade has messed him up some.

 

I mean you have a franchise say to you "We think you're the best WR to ever play in NY, here's the money to show it"

 

Just to say the next offseason "LOLOLOL JK you're cancer, say hello to Cleveland"

 

I don't think it will affect him one bit on the field, but he's sure acted weird since being traded.

Reading too much into it.  Odell always shows up on gameday prepared to put everything he has out there.  Odell will be there when it counts, he reminds me a lot of Jeremy Shockey.

Much ado about nothing. Lots of top players skip OTAs - just because its OBJ some schmuck thinks its news. On gameday - every single opponent fears him and what he can do - that is the only fact the Browns care about.

ouch, that's hardly a vote of confidence. Shockey routinely fucked plays up from his lack of study. 

 

Actually…. there were some murmurs about Beckham not picking up Shurmur's playbook either.... and I don't mean not understanding it, I mean literally not picking it up to learn it in the first place.

I think the criticism is fair when you consider new teammates, chemistry, new offense, new coaches...lack of attendance at OTAs communicates a devaluing of the above.

Why not practice with your new team to be the best you can be? You know they're not going full speed or full contact. Getting the reps can only help.

I agree that he hasn't fully digested the trade yet.

Yeah I think that hits it right on the head...    you would think he would want to get in time with his new team so he could perform his best this season.  I am sure he is not missing these OTA's to spend time studying his playbook

I am not a fan of the trade either...tho his absence from OTAs in Cleveland helps make me okay with him not being here

You think maybe Gettleman had a point to trade him?

Yeah Im starting to think he might not necessarily be a "bad teammate," he might just literally be cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

No fucking point whatsoever. It was just Gettleman highlighting the retardation in him

No..I think keeping him was the better choice...but seeing the headaches already in Cleveland makes you wonder
