CLEVELAND — One day after offering a vague outlook on his future with the Cleveland Browns, Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter to clarify his comments.
"I never said I was not happy in Cleveland," Beckham tweeted on Friday morning. Just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story [please]."
The 3-time Pro Bowl receiver's post comes less than a day after Beckham told reporters Berea that while he "wouldn't rather be anywhere else," there's no way for him to know if that -- or anything else -- will change in the future.
"No one knows what the future holds tomorrow. I couldn't tell you what's going to happen," Beckham told reporters on Thursday. "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."
The vague nature of Beckham's comments, coupled with his disappointing first season with the Browns, has led some to speculate that his time in Cleveland could be limited to one season. With the Browns laying claim to a disappointing 5-7 record, the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is on pace for one of the least productive seasons of his career, having tallied 57 catches for 805 yards and 2 touchdowns.
"I just care about winning and hopefully getting a shot to go to the playoffs," Beckham said on Thursday. "That's the goal. So all the stats and all that, that's been out the window for me. I'm just trying to finish the season strong with the most wins we could possibly have."
With the Browns' playoff hopes on life support following a 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, they'll return to action on Sunday when they host the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium.
